Morse Code

Above, a lovely old Morse key I picked up somewhere.  One day I'll learn to use it!

For many years, Morse was best known as painter.  Below, his tribute to Eli Whitney , the inventor of the cotton gin.

Despite several attempts over the years (Boy Scouts then military) I was never able to master morse code. I remain in awe of those to whom it seems to come as naturally as breathing.
