The old Wendolonia header

This morning, my dad found this graphic on an old back-up disk. This was the very first thing I posted on my very first website. My best guess is that this if from some time in 1996.This might have been the first “photo-shopping” I ever did, though I’d be surprised if I actually did this in Photoshop and, really, my dad probably did most of it.

In any case, it cracked me up!

    Acually, I did do all the work for your page. At the time it was a subpage of Skep.com and one of the first ones I did even then. Back then, all the html was hand coded in Notepad, long before Hot Metal or especially Dreamweaver or FrontPage. I wonder if you could go to the web archive and see what it looked like?

    The days before “blogs” — I remember them well! In 96 I'm not even sure I had a real isp yet. I think I was still dialing in at 2400 baud to a unix shell account at university. LOL. Now feel so old.

    Thankfully, I have no photo-shopped pictures of those days to torment myself. Although my husband does have an audio file from that era that he asked me to make where I am saying “ribbit” and that's bad enough đŸ˜‰

    Sooo impressive. It should have had a warning!! I snorted !! And guess what I found today at Walgreen's? Pirates Booty!! Hey, hey, hey!! Who says Mississippi is the end of the earth when it comes to finding things Wendy mentions on her site. ( Oh, I think that might have been me.) But I am still in search of baked tofu. All we have is that block of stuff that would have you think it tastes like cream cheese. The devil is a lie!!! No cream cheese taste at all!!
