Slamming the Screen Door: Dispatches from a Summer Unplugged, Vol. 3


THIS THIRD AND FINAL dispatch of our unplugged summer was written on August 8, two days before our 70 days of going screen-free were up. You can read the previous two entries on these pages.

All were typed on a cranky Smith Corona, then scanned and send as PDFs by my plugged-in husband. Photos were sent prior to or after the screen-free period.
