Scanning Problems

Welcome to my blog Ali's Page...another Washingtonian quite a bit north from where I live.

I decided that today I'd start scanning photos into my computer (a Mac) and I'm so frustrated because I can't get my printer/copier/scanner to work.  The only thing it will do is copy and that's not what I want right now.  I got a new USB cable hoping that would help and it didn't.  I have many, many photos pre-digital camera that I want to scan and I wanted to start today.  I'm feeling disappointed that I couldn't get started on this project.  Maybe tomorrow.

I don't have a lot to say today so I'll share some Washington pictures.   

This is Mount Rainier taken the last time I flew Alaska Airlines from Tucson back to Seattle. I'm usually on the aisle but this was a relatively empty flight and I had three seats to myself. It was really nice to have so much room. 

I was on another ferry as I took this ferry picture on my way to Sequim (pronounced Squim) for the yearly lavender festival.  

We don't usually have clouds to brag about but sitting in my back yard last summer I looked up and this is what I saw.  

Happy Halloween,


P.S.  On the preview there was lots of white space between the ferry and cloud pictures and my salutation.  I hope it doesn't remain that way when I hit Publish Post because I couldn't figure out how to get rid of it.  I guess this just isn't my day for being successful on my computer.  


  1. Discouraging, isn't it? My printer's scan function isn't working either. I was looking so forward to posting some pop-up/camping/road trip pics from my childhood.

    Sigh. Technology is great .... when it works.

    Happy Halloween! (Our joint's been jumping tonight - we are almost out of treats!).

  2. Do you use blogger or Live Writer to compose your posts? I've found a lot less problems with Live Writer. :)

  3. Great photos - sorry about the scanner. You'll figure it out.
    Happy Halloween!
