Photo scanning blues

Mom: Can’t get the scanner to scan a photo.  What am I doing wrong?

Me: it’s too complicated.  put photo in and try to hit scan button

Mom: Did – doesn’t do anything.  I’ll just mail the photo to your aunt.  It’s a pic of our parents graves. She has difficulty accepting that they are dead.

Me:  That’s pretty harsh, lady.  I’m not gonna open mail from YOU anytime soon!!!

Mom: Maybe I’ll put it in a card.

      When you absolutely, positively must prove to a person that someone is dead a picture of their gravestone is acceptable.

      If it were me, I’d dig up her grave and mail her the skull.

      With a card, of course.

      No wierder than my MIL, when my husband died, she took pictures of him in the coffin. Later she wanted me to look at them. Now that is one photo opportunity I am glad I missed.
