:laugh: This would have been perfect for them. I think it's funnier than "who's on first".

I must email this to Mom! She calls me at least twice a week to ask how to do something on her computer. :laugh:

My mom always wants to know where the pictures go after she scans them. If she wants to print another copy of a picture, she scans it again.
