For Christmas 2002 we were trying to think what we could get for Mom that she would really like. The house was crowded, and anything she wanted she would get herself.
Andy suggested a "memory box": each of us would write memories on index cards, and put them in a small file for her to peruse. She loved them. Now all of them are available here. Feel free to submit new ones to me, I would be pleased to add to it.
Memory from Russell: As a small kid nothing I tried to make ever seemed to come out as I imagined it. Thei changed with a card I made, I believe an anniversary card (it was in springtime, at least).
The idea was to make a fake book called something like "How much I love you", and inside would be not pages but a roll of adding machine tape, on which was written "1000000.......". It took hours, but came out just as I imagined it would.
