The images above were from my tests. The cat is a birthday card from Carl and Les with the words to Charles Lloyd's Tagi transcribed on a sheet of paper. I wanted to see if I could use the OCR that seems to be packaged with the Canon to recognize the words in an image that I scanned using the HP. Maybe.
It's a good thing Saul and Laura are coming up tonight through the winter storm alert weather. I'm sure they will want to play with the system after coffee in the morning.
Happy New Year

We were on our way to the Harpoon Point to Point Ride for the Vermont Foodbank. One bold bird emerged from a gaggle of slow turkeys in the passing lane. He flew right across our path and Adele did not brake or swerve. It was like watching on TV. I didn't even flinch as the large body smacked the passenger side windshield. Small shards of glass rained down.
We decided it would be a good idea to stop and call the police. Could we keep drivng? Was that the turkey back on the side of the road? This picturial essay captures the event.

Mae Pepis's sketch of her mother, Fanny Kreinik.
This is a photo of the framed sketch. I don't want to remove the paper to do a better copy since I messed up Josef's sketch earlier.
This is my great-grandfather, my grandmother Leah (Lee) Kreinik Jacobowitz's father.
The sketch was done by his daughter Mae Pepis. Mae also did a sketch of Frieda (Fanny) Kreinik, her mother and my great-grandmother.
I got the sketches from Max Ellen, widower of my cousin Leslie Tamases Ellen, from their apartment in New York. We tried to scan the image and ripped the sketch paper in the lower left. I offered to get it repaired, and Max said to just take the sketches in their frames.
I got in touch with some Pepis relatives. Aaron Pepis is a photographer living in upstate New York. Mae's son Saul Pepis lives in California.

Claude has been staying with us while Saul & Laura are in the far east. We now know why the only toys they left for him were very robust, noise free devices. I got him a squeaky toy. It squeaked for about 5 minutes before Claude performed the squeakectomy.

Cecile Jennie Jacobowitz, Pop-pop's sister, married Adolph Treuhaft. They had three children, Mimi, Buddy, and Evelyn. Jennie had been a friend of Dudu's from school on Broome Street before she met Pop-pop.
This photo is labeled Niagara Falls, NY. Seems to be an anniversary.
