|the scanner is back
The scanner is back! Well, it was actually here all the time. But now the new software is loaded and it's working better than ever. Thanks to those that chipped in. Now I can get back to Gordy and Madelane's Great Pilgrimage. It might have to wait until after I move. I'm supposed to be out of this house on Tuesday. At this point, I'm feeling that desperation when it's becoming obvious that the oncoming deadline is just going to run right over the top of me. Until then, I bring you a little touch of spring...
It was a cool rainy day yesterday. The lot next to mine is overun with blackberry bushes. These are usually a serious pest since they keep growing, and growing, and growing. But, during the hot days of August, they supply everyone with their fruit. Blackberries grow everywhere around here and it's a common sight in August to see people pulled over on the side of the road picking blackberries that are growing on empty lots or just on the side of the road. The ones that get the most sun are the sweetest.
I scanned this at high resolution. The link has some much larger versions. Much larger.
