Formatting, Or, Eyes Crossed, Mind Numb, Oh, WHY Do I Do This?

Copyright 2012, CABS for Reflections From the Fence

Call me crazy, call me, well, lots of descriptive terms come to mind, which are best not mentioned on a public forum, but, honestly I just cannot publish a page like this:

So, I don't.  SIGHH.  I edit them with photo editing software.  It takes time, this particular page took almost 30 minutes.  GULP!  Here it is partially finished:

And, this is how it will look in the finished product, not perfect, but, I think it is a bit better.  I sure hope so, since I am spending HOURS formatting this book for the local genie club.

And, now, back to the mind numbing chore, out of 330 pages I have about 85 pages to go.

You do it because you care about genealogy and the people looking for their families. :) That's fantastic! You do good work, and it looks SO much better. I think the first page of that book should have your photo with a caption: THIS WOMAN SUFFERED FOR MONTHS AND CONSUMED MANY ADULT BEVERAGES AS A RESULT, JUST SO THIS BOOK COULD LOOK GOOD. So please appreciate it. :)

We do what we do because we can't help ourselves. It looks SO much better. Hopefully everyone will appreciate it and give you lots of kudos and/or pay you big bucks. Ha, right?
