Himself: He had a good day yesterday. Cold at the museum, but a good day none the less.
Herself: Wore parts of me out but almost got that DVD done. Today I tweak it, tomorrow it will be done. Yes, I still have that drawing board, my wax machine, and one exacto knife.
Reading: Finished the newest Cadell.
Balance: Giving my eyes a rest.
When I was doing newspaper work, we used wax as the medium to coat the various pieces with.
We would give the copy to our typesetter, Janey, and when it came back we would wax the specialized computer printouts, trim the columns to the exact width with an exacto knife, and lay them down on the templates. When they were approved, we burnished the finished product down, rubbed it with a rounded tool or roller, so it would stay together. As we discovered mistakes, we sent these off to Janey so she could make new words, paragraphs, or sometimes even just one letter. When they arrived back.....always just at publishing time, I would carefully cut out the corrections, wax them, and insert them as straight as I could.
Yesterday, I finished the photo DVD…or so I thought. When G took a look on his computer, I found duplicate photos, incorrect descriptions, and other trivia that needed corrections cut in.
These days it’s all done in the computer. One just clicks on the backspace or highlights then deletes. Cutting in corrections is so easy now. Not an exacto or wax machine in sight.
