Throwback Thursday (not to be confused with “Taco Tuesday”) seems to be all the rage these days on social media as people dust off old weatherworn photos from yesteryear and post them for all to behold… and chuckle at.
I’m not immune to this trend.
A few years ago my mom asked me to digitize all of the slides my parents and grandparents had taken over the decades, dating as far back as the early 50s. I eagerly said yes, not realizing that scanning in a half century’s worth of images could potentially take a little bit of time. Cut to the next month when a massive box packed with over 2,500 slides showed up at my door (and this was after my mom had weeded out several thousand rejects). Scan away Scotty!
