Re: This Morning..

LW went to the Spanish Market to see the jewelry that our niece makes. I took a nap.

Re: Ahhhh - The Good Old Days

I remember punch cards at the university.
Then, when I got my job programming, we had to leave our desks to go down to the room where the computers were to key in everything.
