 +====== Karen how do you program the scanner? ======
 +
 +Sadly we we do not appreciate the Little Things our wife's do for us.  I just ran into yet another thing that Karen always took care of doing for us.
 +
 +Karen liked to listen to the Police Scanner. ​ I liked listening too, however she always took care of finding and putting the frequencies into the scanner, so I never had to worry about it.
 +
 +This week [[:​user:​gpaddock:​start|Garth]] accidentally unplugged the scanner., and it lost all of its frequencies,​ all 200 of them.
 +This scanner predates computer interfaces. ​ The frequencies need to be entered by the keypad. ​ :-(
 +
 +Karen was an accomplished programmer when she wanted to be.  She programmed the local Amateur (Ham) Radio Repeater system for years, having her Ham license as KD3ZU.
 +
 +It is not the Big Things what we miss when someone dies, it is these Little Things of life that were overlooked when they were with us.
 +Learn from my mistake and tell your Wife/​Girlfriend/​Significant Other 'Thank You!".
 +
 +Now off to find a manual for this scanner...

 +“When we first got married, we made a pact. It was this: In our life together, it was decided I would make all of the big decisions and my wife would make all of the little decisions. For fifty years, we have held true to that agreement. I believe that is the reason for the success in our marriage. However, the strange thing is that in fifty years, there hasn’t been one big decision.” – Albert Einstein. ​
