Epitaph for a Scanner

Oh, how your light shined!
Digitizing my words, time after time.
But bit by bit your circuitry died
And over time your light has faded.
So scan nevermore, my faithful friend
For today you shall be liquidated.

Sorry for the hiatus, but as you can see my scanner has died. I must venture out to the thrift stores and find another one.

Just a little note to let everyone out there know that I did not fall off the face of the earth. Our desktop has been on the screwy end of the spectrum for a while now, burning through power supplies like a cheap pack of cigarettes. I can't find the power cord to the scanner. I finally acquired a Hermes 3000. Five bucks at Angel View Thrift Store, here in Hemet. Sometimes I feel so spoiled having so many good thrift stores around. I'm sure the fact that this is a retirement community adds to the surplus of typewriters around.
