what's a scratch pad?

my great grandma melva is in town visiting this week and next.
she is 92 years old, the granddaughter (or great granddaughter, I can't remember right now) of wilford woodruff and as spunky as i ever remember her.
as animated and outspoken as always.
i love her.

our elders have so many wonderful stories to share with us young people. life was so different when she was our age. she was appalled when we all didn't know what a scratch pad was and that she had to pay $9 for a watch battery.

Hey Courtney! It's is Eileen... I don't know if you know me? From Hillsboro... Anyway you are such a great photographer, that's great you are getting into that. I have a question... how do you post pics that are big like that? I really want to but can't figure out how! Hope you and Dan are doing well!
