Endless Surprises

Slow on the uptake:

1. I've had this camera case for about a year. One day, I noticed there was a little loop of nylon in one corner of the interior. I didn't think about that for some time but then I wondered hmm... what could it be? Then I put a pen in it... it's a pen holder! And it only took a year to find that out.

2. I've been using Photoshop Elements for quite some time now. One day, I was in a Waldenbooks looking around when I noticed they had the Photoshop Elements for Dummies book. I was curious to see what exactly the book would cover so I picked it up and flipped through it. Landed on a page about the Background Eraser. Wait a minute, Background Eraser? I need to take a look at that toolbar a little more closely. Who knows how many other features I might be missing?

Stuff I didn't know I had:

1. On Sunday, I was on one of the trails by the Musconetcong River in Sussex County. The trail was somewhat overgrown with Multiflora rose, the thorny horror. So I had to cut my way through with scissors, all the while wishing I had hedge trimmers or a more suitable cutting implement. Today, I was looking through the trunk of my car and guess what? There's a pair of cutters in there!

2. I dropped some change under the driver's seat. So I had to get down there and feel around for the change and... I found a magnet. It's a piece of witticism (see picture) and no doubt originated from some tourist venue or other, but I have no idea where or when I got it. Anyway, I added it to the fridge.

The magnet...Collapse )
