My husband is having fun again.
The box on the table turned out to be a Canon scanner – something he’s been talking about getting for years. I agreed that a scanner might come in handy, especially one that would take 35mm film strips.
The scanner was a big surprise to me and after thanking my husband and jumping up and down a few times, I went out to take a walk.
And when I came back, I saw this.
My husband is in rare form today, I’ll tell you. He moved the scanner box out to the living room, right where I sit, as if to say “open it up and get it going”. Also, to my surprise, he’d brought down two boxes full of old pictures taken throughout our life. They were sitting in the living room waiting for me to get to work. Oh, my!
I thought it would be difficult to figure out the thing, but after loading the software, it was a piece of cake. A piece of crumb cake.
I am now the proud owner of a Canon CanoScan 9000F which scans prints as well as 35mm film strips, 35mm slides, and 120 format films. So I opened one of the old boxes and took some photos from the top to share a few with you real quick.
Please be kind.
My husband and I at someone’s wedding in NJ in 1992. My hair has always been unruly. And I can’t believe how young we look.

Please be kind. Me circa 1982.
I had just bought an antique rocker with mother of pearl inlay and was quite proud of myself because I’d gotten it to fit into my Fiat Sport Coupe for the ride home.
Don’t ask me how I did that. I remember it wasn’t easy using the gear shift.

Hope you enjoyed. As I continue scanning, I’ll share more from time to time.
Have a beautiful week, all ~
