“Today is a gorgeous day to go outside and look at your phone.”

In the past I’ve shared that my granddaughter, Miah, is helping me navigate the world of technology.  She’s the techno wizard behind my blog.  What I need to confess is that when she points me toward a site where I can find additional technology that might be useful, I’m often sometimes unable to navigate the site.  Ive got to get the lovely young lady sit at my side and SHOW me.  Meeting with her soon.


She’s lovely and she takes me to amazing restaurants.

There is, however, bits of technology that I’ve mastered.  One bit is my ebook.  I’m especially adept at poking the edge of the screen in order to electronically turn the page.  And then one day I was reading a real book.  When I got to the bottom of the page I poked the edge of the paper page.  Nothing happened, but I did come out of my readers trance.

Another bit of technology that I’m great at is Caller ID.  Unless I recognize the caller I won’t answer.  Isn’t that one of the most wonderful blessings in the Universe!

Screeching Halt!  Lately I’ve been thinking about a lady friend that I haven’t seen for about 50 years.  (How do you like the non-segue?) Out of the blue we became connected again.  It’s a weird and wonderful story of how that happened and I’m so glad that it did.


In my fantasy life I’m the one with the green hair!

She just called and we caught up.  Marriage and kids and retirement stories were shared.  We now live about 2 hours apart.  I invited her to visit.  She doesn’t drive except around her neighborhood.  Email?  No computer.  Text messages?  Just doesn’t do that.  The telephone is her communication of choice along with lunch dates in neighborhood restaurants.  She’s always been a wonderfully independent spirit.

I found the phone call very refreshing.   The modus operandi of our friendship is going to be the telephone and lunches, just like in the old days.  Real visits.  I remember how to  do that!
