Y0u might know that I’ve been working on putting together collections of daily strips. Well I finally finished although the books still need copyright data and submission to the publisher. It’s very time consuming, so I’ve written some routines that take away some of the repetitive work. This video illustrates how I use a program called Quickeys to insert pages into my Word document which will become a book.
By the way. I thought I was finished a week ago, but then I found some errors in the 88-89-90 collection It took me 8 days to straighten it out. This particular book covers the first three years of dailies.

Laurel Hoffmann sent me a video via Comments about how to easily make a face mask. She’s got to be a lot better at it than I.
You know, I really appreciate it when people take the time to send me stuff. Thanks, Laurel.
