I'd like to add to this new thread...things I miss. Remember those old
timey hand-cranked ditto machines? The kind you had to use those carbon
sheets where you had to remove the inside sheet so the carbon would
transfer to the back sheet when you wrote or typed on it (and you also got
yourself covered in ink and your carbon had these nifty fingerprints all
over it)?

These sheets used to make the KOOLest art projects. If you drew a picture
and then put an exposed carbon underneath and ""TRACED"" (double "ha")
over the picture again, it would transfer the picture to the back side.
Using this back side, you could carefully color in just up to the ink lines
with crayon heavily. When finished, run them gently under the spigot and
they would make beautiful "bleeding" a resist technique.

I miss these and I miss the kids back then who would NEVER talk back to a
teacher nor think to get into serious trouble. Ahhhh....the good ole days!
