A lot of what I do for my online business involves me going to estate sales to find vintage and retro toys, books and games. So I get the chance to be inside a lot of different and interesting houses in surrounding cities. Sometimes those sales are actually near where I live.

When you find a drawing you don't remember doing

I don't remember drawing this picture A Google Photos drawing surprise I set up all the drawing apps I use on my phone and tablet to automatically back up what I create to  Google Photos .  The main reason is to save it of course. But the other reason I back up my drawings to Google Photos is that it has a memory feature . I get an alert each day where it tells me I have photo memories that I can look at.
