Is typing still taught in school? Sherry took it and I think got up to 80-100 words a minute. She used that skill in several jobs over her lifetime. She earned many awards, as a dedicated worker.
Long ago I taught myself to type. I never was good enough at this to look at what I type (vs keys), but now I must learn to do that. I bought a new laptop. I have had to cover the touch pad I tend to hit it with a lazy thumb and move my typing to another part of the page, then I must spend minutes finding where I am, and making corrections.
I prefer a PC & keyboard, but as much as we travel, I spend a lot of time moving systems. Sherry has switched to a tablet and her phone and is doing great. I am proud of how she has learned to handle it.
(I must quit staring at the KB like this guy!)
With the PC in this motorhome I was using the passenger’s seat away from my girl who was here at the kitchen table. With this Laptop I am now back close to her, I sorta like being close to that ‘older’ woman.
I was fortunate to corral this beauty from a grade above me in school. We laugh about her being 2 years older than me for two months every year, then I catch up and she is only a year older. Some folks say she raised me well, but at times she feels like a failure ;-).
Years ago I asked her what her birth day was and she said, “November 6th.”
“What year?” I asked.
“Every year,” was her smart aleck retort. We did get a good laugh out of it.
Birthdays? I remember very well my dad’s birthday was 1903. In my mind I can still hear him say when asked his birthday he would respond, “I was born back in in “Oh Three”.
I think of that now, many kids today can say the same thing, in 1970-80-90 I never thought there was soon coming a time when kids again would be born in ‘Oh one (two, three, etc)’
I am still cognizant enough to know at best I have about 10 years left here. Dad has been gone 50 years, I hope someone will remember me 50 years after I am gone. ;-), dreaming aren’t I!!!!!
