Enjoying the Weather and More
The weather has been beautiful here the last couple of days. I am so enjoying the cooler weather!
A couple of days ago AD and I were headed into town. As we were pulling out of the driveway I wished I had my camera with me because the sun behind the fog was gorgeous. I didn't say anything though. Then when we were about out the gate AD remembered he'd left his cell phone laying in the house.
Since he was going back to get it I told him to grab my camera too. I'm glad he forgot to pick up his phone or I wouldn't have this photo.
One of the reasons he needed his phone was because our contract was up and we'd decided when that happened we'd get with technology and add texting and the internet to our plan. We were going to get new phones while we were in town. This is my new phone.
With the new phone in hand I sent a text to Son, Daughter and G1 just saying, "What do you think?" It only took me about 15 minutes to figure out how to do that. LOL!
Within a couple of minutes I was at the dentist's office when my phone rang. I was there to get a temporary crown put on. Daughter had called to say she'd just got a text from me. I laughed and told her we'd gotten new phones and a package with texting. She was relieved because she thought G1 might have gotten ahold of my phone somehow and texted her with it.
By then the hygienist had her hands in my mouth and my phone was going off like crazy with text messages coming in. One came from G1 saying something like, "So you're getting with technology now!" and a couple from Son, one warning G1 and/or G2 that if they were playing with Granny's cell phone she was not going to be happy.
I really never thought I needed text messaging or the internet but in the few days I've had my new phone I've found that it's pretty convenient.
And I promise not to text and try to drive at the same time.
