Ok.it’s true, I am a “Flip-Pal ohalic”. I think I have crossed the line from avid user to nut case. I have written previously about my use of the Flip-Pal – I truly adore the little scanner. Today we had a society meeting and I told some of the folks at lunch about my latest faux pas with my sweet little scanner. One of the gals suggested I write about what I did on my blog so here I go. My dear Aunt passed recently. I knew I would be traveling to Illinois and naturally I packed my Flip-Pal (we always take trips together). While were at the funeral home for the family visitation I noticed that some of my cousins had brought photo albums to the funeral home. Yes you guessed it – I went out to the car and grabbed my Flip-Pal. Now my mother gave me that don’t do it look, Dad shook his head but yes I grabbed one of the albums and started scanning pictures.
The process was going well….. I was scanning the photos while in the album – I did not remove any pictures and then I was noticed. One cousin came over and asked me what I was doing, then the next one and the next one. Now I had a crowd, great! So I told them – hey just kinda block me so I can get these scanned Ok guys? I was on the second album when another cousin joined the group and loudly said ‘”Hey, she’s scanning with a little machine! Come see!”. Well at that point I had to shut down my little scanfest.
So I did not get all the photos I wanted that day. Luckily I was at lunch at one of my cousin’s and the albums surfaced again. I finally finished scanning the photos I wanted. What can I say? I guess my new motto will be have scanner will scan.
