Sheila (Of Southern Comfort) said she started reading & blogging after reading about the blog, ‘Dad and his Tomato patch’. The oldest blogger.
I have followed some old folk and was proud of them for handling the system. Jean of Op (Sheila’s mom) beats all. That lady is older than I with twice the energy! Met her, love that woman!
I have a background in early giant computers, but my first PC knocked me for a loop. It took me a good 6-8 hours just to enter the date to allow me to continue. I was in the construction business and the PC was suggested by my attorney to keep track of profit and expenditures.
The PC cost was over $2000 and after a few hours I wanted to throw it out in the yard. LOL This was before Windows, internet, etc.
So yes I followed a few blogs after putting forth a lot of effort to use (not master) the PC. And learn a little about the internet.
I remember ‘Just Bill’, and there was ‘Say it Baldys, had to add an s’. Yes that was the name of his blog. Like me he needed help but did not let that stop him from blogging I hoped to meet Bill out in Colorado, but he was moved to a full care facility before I made it. There was ‘Dribbles by (Chuck?)’, he posted from a senior care facility. I laughed when he said ‘translate that Old Folks Home.’ He was a retired teacher in a motorized wheel chair. I enjoyed his Blog.
When I say to our sons or grands, I don’t know how to do ‘something’. The simple instructions are like, “Shoot, all you need to do is click, ‘second set’ on the jersy menu,then check the DCIM, slide it to the side pull down the xxsd group, click go, answer a couple questions and then double click the funny icon on the top and there you are, piece a cake!" (or clear as mud!)
WE are glad just to get by at our age.
I hope to be around here for a while longer, I do hope we don’t have too many ‘software’ changes….. LOL
