If You Wuz Me


What would you do with fifteen years of Farm Sides? And, alas, this is not the whole pile. Back in the day I used to keep track of them and file them by year in order and all so there is a half a drawer full of filed ones too.

I really want to keep them.......

And I am missing a good few.....

If you've got the time, a scanner and the software to do so: scan them, convert to pdf files, and burn them to a CD.

I would be so proud too and I wouldn't get rid of them either!

I think you should put them all together into a book that magnificently documents a way of life that's growing all too rare.

I 'second' all of above advice.

Make sure - what ever you do - that there are copies in different places/homes.

After this year's tornados and wildfires . . you never know.

I know we all echo Woodswalker's comment.

Well...you could browse through them and pick some to do a "that was then, this is now" type of comparison article. Or a "Remember when...?" article.

And what joated said is important. Time is valuable, so you could pay a responsible person to scan these for you.

What joated said. Most Kinko's & FedEx stores have scanners large enough to do the job.

Thank you all so much for your good ideas and kind words. So far I just dumped them back in the drawer, whence they emerged when the boss at the paper wanted me to find certain titles for him.....but I really need to get them organized!
