I’m always a bit slow to get on board with new trends. When answering machines came in, I hated them. When cell phones came in, I couldn’t understand why people couldn’t just make their phone calls before leaving home. I finally got a flip phone when my Dad got sick and I needed to be easily reached. I hated texting on the thing because you had to hit the number buttons various times while it scrolled through the alphabet. It would take a half hour to write a message. Unfortunately, it was the only way my teens would communicate with me. You can text your mother discretely but you can’t phone her without all your pals knowing.
I finally retired my flip phone last summer (yes it is true, I had a flip phone until last year) and got an iPhone. Well, dang it all! I now get what all the fuss is about. I’m never far from that thing! It is for that very reason, I don’t have a data plan and rely on wifi hot spots. If I had a data plan I’d be surgically attached!
One thing I like is the apps. Especially the free ones. I’m all about the cheap thrills! My latest fun thing is Photo Lab. Oooo the great “WORKS OF ART” I have been creating. How about me as an oil painting…
Or me in my husbands pocket watch.
My favorite is the sketch look. I did several of these.
Shirley and I at the train station was followed by me on the beach.
I think the beach one looks most realistic. The next one could be a future tattoo…
Awe! What is your favorite app? Would you give up your phone and computer if you could go back to the good old days?
