Ok, so I did the 5-day long Rubber Duckie series last week... There were a lot more duck pictures that I didn't use...outtakes of sorts...but I was looking at this one again, and I'm struck at HOW BRIGHT YELLOW this duck is. It looks like it's lit up inside, but I assure you, it's not. It's almost cartoonish.
This duckie is perched on the shelf of long-time Klipsch employee, Product Development Manager Jim Garrett.

"Send me a sample!"
"THAT would've been nice to know."
"I think we're getting there."
"Um, why is there a skunk on that shelf?"
"That's only 2 weeks of production..."
"If I would've know that, I'd have sent her some black balloons."
"Yeah, I'm still here. Unfortunately for everyone else."
"I think he's at an offsite meeting. Yeah, right."
"Well now, that's based on fantasy!"

I was in high school before I saw my first home computer, which history would tell me most likely ran MS-DOS. My best friend's dad was a V.P. at Eli Lilly, so he always had the latest and greatest. Along with his dot matrix printer. We made a lot of cool banners on that green and white striped paper.
Fast forward 3 years... my college roommate had a brand new Mac II, and I was finally exposed to the wonders of a mouse (not the furry rodent). I discovered email somewhere around 1993--my first ever email went to my cousin at the University of Illinois from a computer lab at Indiana U.....and that was sooo cool. Of course I had to keep calling her to make sure she got it. When 1997 rolled around, I was finally able to surf the mysterious internet that everyone had been buzzing about at my brand new job with a computer software company.
Steven was 2 when he mastered the "point and click" and became fairly proficient in Windows Paint. Much more so than my mother, anyway, although that's not really a fair gauge. He was also 2 when he discovered games on The Wiggles website. He can now find various children's websites saved in his Favorites file, navigate through multiple windows, print pages for coloring, turn on/off the computer correctly, and adjust the speaker volume with hardware and software.
I'm thinking about getting a copy of Quickbooks Pro so he can do my taxes online next year.
