I must admit I still think in inches too... and I've been surrounded by metric for decades!

Even though he was raised on inches, feet and yards, my husband taught school for 29 years, so he can think in centimetres, but I can't.
In my working years, we measured width in picas and points, and depth in inches. 72 points to an inch, 12 points to a pica, therefore 6 picas to an inch. Nobody ever thought about centimetres in the printing trade.
I'd love to have an old yardstick. My husband has something he calls a "metre stick" — drives me crazy because it still sounds so wrong.

great shot
when In was in Canada, I was great with km v miles, and a yard/meter are close enough, but not so much with the small stuff

Love the different shades in the photo. I still think in yards and inches.

Because I lived in California for so long, I can think in both inches and centimeters. I'm getting used to centimeters, though. Do you own all these yard sticks?

Great visual and word for the letter I.

I preferred inches too lol.

Inspector Hector is my letter I. Hope you can drop by!

an inch is as good as a mile. Oh? I think I've mixed metaphors. Do love measuring sticks, though. :)

I love inches, - I can think of metric temperatures, but measurements are still in inches and feet and yards in my mind.

Clever take on the letter "I".

I love how creative people are in these alphabet memes. And this post is a great example. We have always been inches, never went metric -- should have probably!

AH! So there is something I can do with my old rulers - save them for I in the next round. :) Actually, this was a very clever. I never even thought of "inches."
