Have you ever promised someone that you would do something and then later realized how much trouble and inconvenience doing that particular favor will cause? I had that epiphany this morning about some photos someone from the Miller Reunion requested.
The request was that they wanted a copy of all of the photos I took from the reunions starting from 1999 going back to 1979. The problem is not that I can give them an electronic copy. I have most of them on the computer already. The problem is that they wished that I email them to them.
Once I got to thinking about that, I realized that would become a giant undertaking. Although, I did not go to every reunion during that period; I did attend many of them. The number of photos can reach over a thousand. That will make an awfully large number of emails that I have to build with attachments. It could literally take me weeks to do it even attaching three and four photos per email.
This morning, I came up with an easier way to take care of the problem. I shall inquire about her snail mail address and send her a CD containing all the photos. It may cost me the price of a couple stamps, an envelope, a CD and a couple hours to assemble the package. At least I would not be tied up trying to send all of those photos. Even if it took several CDs to accomplish the task.
Now, I feel so much better since I figured out how to get out of that much work. I would like to spend it in other endeavors like writing, photography or just conversing with friends.
