After a few missed shots, I thought I felt a kind of thawing out sensation in the neuropathy in my feet, but no symptoms or side effects have really changed.
I’m still sorting and organizing files in my picture archives. Lately my push is assigning dates to my pre-digital camera pictures. Those picture files report the date they were scanned as being the date they were taken, which is far from accurate. I can fairly guesstimate dates for pictures with my kids in them, but without them, it’s tough.
Many years ago, Diane and I stepped out in faith and started a small business. If you are or have ever been self employed, you know what I mean about stepping out in faith. In the startup supplies we purchased for our in-home office was our first, large, 23×18” wall calendar. It was great for scheduling and recording my jobs and other work related items. I also began adding personal notes like birthday reminders and event dates. Before long, the wall calendar became a sort of “Express Lane diary for five items or less.” My favorite entries are from after our kids came along. There are a lot of “first did” and “first said” notations. On December 17, 1980, my 2 ½ year old son said he will shoot and kill the neighbors. Where did he get that? In November, three years later, the same son asked if your spirit was like a bubble with God in it. Where did he get that? Kids are funny. Overall the calendars tell a story of busy people quite involved with family and friends.
I have hundreds of pictures that need accurate dates. I have about 372 monthly calendar pages from 1976 to 2007 that remember most of the events represented by pictures needing dates. All I have to do is match them up! The Blessings continue.
