Thanks for the feedback, raymac46. My husband has come around and decided the Jumbl is the best option.
a) I don't have to drop slides off anywhere and risk having them lost - Yes they are irreplaceable because they were taken in Australia in 1971 - 1972 from my teaching days there (I think they were taken with an old Vivitar camera long sent to the scrap heap)
B) I can do a better job of cleaning them up than some disinterested person having to scan 500+ slides
c) If I don't like the resulting picture, I can rescan or start fiddling with the image to get a better end result.

It will keep me from adding to his "honey-do" list because I will be busy with this job. :teehee:

@Erik...

These days I don't often get my whipper to do much snappin'. This past week was an exception. I did shovel and sledgehammer work at my uncle's place every day this week since Sunday AM. FUN! Well, the good thing is that at least I know I can whip and snap when I need to. Unfortunately, most of the whipping is from the whipped feeling I have when I get up in the mornings and the snapping is the sound of my creaky bones and joints when I crawl out of bed. Whew! Shovel/sledgehammer work is for young folks. ;)
