Lloyd has been working non-stop this past week getting all that wire hooked up and functioning so that they can have wireless internet at his school. I stopped by on Saturday and ‘helped’. Totin’ and haulin’ – those are my specialties!
At one point we were in the office of the shop teacher who just retired after working there for-eh-ver. (Lloyd thinks 30 years or more.) The desk was mostly cleaned out, but this was in one of the drawers.
These markers were made in 1990! We were still in college! These are older than our marriage. Sorry, Lincoln Lutheran, but I took it home. It’s for science!
Here they are next to a box of new markers, 8 vs. 10:
How are they different? Well, aside from being pretty dried out, old markers are shorter than their newer siblings, and also don’t have a website printed on the side because the internet hadn’t been invented yet.
New markers are multilingual! Old markers are singlelingual.
The old markers boast that they have long lives, and say how to revive them. I can’t decide if I should or not.
If I do decide to revitalize these, how come I’m not supposed to shake them? What?! What could possible happen? Is it worth it?
