  Peggy, you'd be my free pass into any scrapbooking club, I'm sure.  It would take me a looong time to print out all these pictures though!

I wonder if we sometimes shy away from new technology because it never develops the way we think it will and I don't think it's as intuitive as it could be.  I was ready for portable telephones, but I wasn't ready for one that could give me directions to Florida!  The internet was the coolest invention since the television, and I'm all over that.  My "smart" TV does things that I don't even know about.  So does my phone.

More people are starting to use their phones to cruise the internet, but in that, I resist giving up my computer.  My computer can still do things my phone can't and much faster, plus it's not much fun playing games on a screen that I can completely cover with 3 fingers.  As far as that goes, my fingers are almost too big to hit those tiny buttons on the phone, although I'd sometimes rather text than talk.  I do admit though, there's a chess program, (I'm just not so OCD I have to say "app" instead of the longer "program",) on my phone that I really like better than the one on my computer, and I really appreciate its portability.  I can play chess on my phone in places I wouldn't want to drag my laptop.

Television, there's always been good and bad.  You can't beat "Lost In Space", "The Wild Wild West", "Voyage To The Bottom Of The Sea", "Monty Python" etc.  But there was a lot of junk on too.  There still is, but sometimes you can still strike gold.  I've recently got hooked on "The Goldbergs".  It's set in ancient times.  (The 80s.)  John

I do hope Teddi is still around and happy. What a cutie!

I never did scrapbooking. If I did I believe I would use real photos now. I find the older I get the more I try to get away from digital (when possible). How odd, growing up I was always excited about the future and technology and now I am older and find I wax on nostalgia on older things. I like Old Time Radio shows (stupidly I have an internet radio in the bedroom that is what I use to listen to a lot of the OTR shows) and older tech now. I now prefer wired telephones (but have to use my cell phone all the time), older television shows... I must be turning into an old man. ;)

John, our group would havel welcomed you with open arms!  Only once did I ever see a guy scrapbooking though.  I'd want you to sit with me at my table so we could scrapbook our kitty pictures together!  Peggy

I know there are a few scrapbook clubs around.  It just made me chuckle, thinking of the looks on their faces if someone who looked like me joined, and started making scrapbooks with all these cat pictures.  It tickles Cheri to no end when people want to meet me but are a little afraid to, then when they do, they find out I'm a somewhat large, fairly hairy intellectual, with a heart like a marshmallow.  John

John, these photos were taken with a digital camera but I had them developed for my scrapbooking.  I don't scrapbook anymore and now digital scrapbooks are popular.  There are still lots of scrapbookers out there who prefer to do their albums with actual photos.  Bet you have some great ones in those thousands!  Peggy

Those are some really great pictures!  I don't have too many real pictures.  Everything is digital.  Even those pictures of Poof that were real, I scanned off.  I must have thousands of pictures though.  It was always standard practice to get one picture of every cat, around the first of every month.  John
