July’s ScanFest is tomorrow, but I can’t make it–ironically because I’ve got too many photos! I mentioned a little while ago that I was anticipating receiving a number of photos from a relative in the Midwest. By Friday, 25 July, a total of nine medium-sized moving boxes of photos and documents had arrived by mail! Today, a 5’x7’x8′ crate was off-loaded from a flatbed truck–the crate contains, along with antique furniture, more than 200 cubic feet of photographs and documents, some dating well back into the 19th century.
I’m not joking.
We have received probably more than 5,000 photographs, not to mention documents and vital records.
I could spend the next ten years dealing with this stuff . . . .

Thanks to Faith Archuleta and her crew from Faith Full Movers, Citrus Heights, California, for their help today!
