good morning campers! i want to say "thank you!" to all of yall hanging in there for a good laugh or a giggle every so often..either way, i really appreciate it!................
so posting on instagram has gone pretty good, until my bg texts me and says "no posts for 3 days?".....i call her to say i have posted every day.....so what gives?....
well for those of us not born and raised with a mouse in one hand and a cell phone in another.....back when rotary dial phones with the 20 ft cord were all the rage....ya know the ones that you had to unravel everyday...or try to hop over as the cord stretched from where ever the phone was to the most inconvenient place to talk, a closet was a good place for privacy.....i actually have a rotary dial phone hanging up in my kitchen, and it works.....i wanted the grands to learn how to dial the phone, in case they were ever in a situation and all that was available was a rotary dial phone....ya never know......so i told them to pick up the receiver, and then dial....it seemed pretty self explanatory to me.....well they looked at the receiver and tried to poke at it to make it work, same with the dial, they tried talking into the air to make something come on......it was hilarious....of course that's the way they feel about me trying to learn any kind of technology.....my grandson wanted me to play video games with him ( iv'e never really played video games, well space invaders, and i wasn't that good)...he gave me the controller and quickly explained the use of the buttons....now mind you he's playing too.....well it wasn't 5 minutes into the game, and yes, he had been trying to coach me as he played, when he just took my controller and played both games..................
so my bg, being my kids age, has a little more patience....i mentioned in another post that i had 2 google accounts....yep i was on the other instagram account (connected to another google account) that my youngest daughter had set up for me many moons ago, and i obviously did not use it........well when my bg figured that out, i had to learn to go from one account to another and delete and copy and paste, etc........let's just say she's go a lot of patience..."a lot of patience!!!!".....oh the post-it's.....aaarrrrggghhhh
so technology....good...bad...frustrating....overwhelming...post this...download that.....but it is useful.....i just like to keep a hammer beside the computer at all times....... it helps the computer behave better.............be groovy!
