I am reminded again of why I married the man I did almost 36 years ago. This week, whenever we can fit it in, Lou is teaching me to operate the machine we have to cut our stencils and vinyl for the signs we make. He is patiently showing me how to use the program, CorelDraw, to design and layout the wording, and then to send it to the cutter which is like a printer, but cuts the letters instead of printing them. By mastering this, I think it will help speed things along in our prodution process.
I went kickin' and screamin' into using a computer while my daughters were still in high school and the girls tell me all the time how amazed they are at what I do now. But I am still timid about trying new things with the computer...afraid that I will lose information. So it is slow going in teaching Pat how to work the cutter. Lou just shakes his head and smiles when I ask him the same question over and over and calmly shows me again what to do and why.
