Mostly, I took the day off yesterday. I did run down to town to deposit a check and to get some hydraulic fluid. It was in the mid-40’s so all that snow we got was melting. That may make it hard to reconnect the snow plow to the truck, as it may be frozen to the ground when I do that. Oh, well.
Stereograms were all the rage at the end of the last century, despite complaints from many people that they could not see the embedded 3-D image. I ran across a bunch of stereograms in my clip art collection and am posting the one below for your amusement.
For those of you who haven’t been able to see the image, I will explain how to do that. In front of your monitor, put the tips of your fingers on both hands together – tip to tip (not the thumbs, though). Open your fingers up so they make a sort of basket. Now look through the basket and focus your eyes on your monitor screen. You should see what look like beans between the tips of your fingers.
This is the same thing you have to do to see the stereogram. You have to focus your eyes behind the picture and then you will be able to see it.
Live long and prosper.
