Yep, another old broad here! My DD can do anything w/ a computer and cell phone. I hesitate to do things on the computer for fear of screwing it up beyond repair. My DD helped me find this site 3 yrs ago, helped me set up to get on, showed me how to do the stuff to post. If she leaves, I'm toast.
My DH gets on the computer and hits the wrong key and we get a bill. OMG
A few yrs back my family got me a cell phone for Mother's Day. My DD set everything up and showed me how to text. I had a pay as you go. I don't want to talk and waste my min, just wanted to text to keep in touch w/ my children as they were all over the place. This yr my husband needed to get a new phone and wanted me to get a new one. I resisted for awhile, so afraid I wouldn't learn how the new one works. I finally got another one, also pay as you go. My DD set everything up, again. I also have a song for each of my family members, so I know who is calling - in case I'm driving while the phone rings.
25 yrs ago, I set up our 1st VCR, I was so proud of myself. Every one after that has not been set up by me, just can't get it. My DD has done it. She also installed this computer.
I love the radio playing in my kitchen and my car, I also can't set that up - again my DD. She has programmed all the stations for AM and FM. I basically play 2 stations, but I'm ready just in case.
I have always said I'm not really buggy about
gadgets in the car. As long as my heater and radio work, oh yeah and the breaks, too, I'm happy. This car I have now has electronic windows, at first not too excited. I have had the worse time w/ my arms, shoulders, etc. and just pushing a button has been such a blessing. Now my list is windows, radio, and heater - and yeah, breaks.
I don't watch much TV, my DH loves the TV, he loves the remote - no, he can't figure out all the buttons, either. He is forever losing the control tho, it usually ends up under the sofa cushion. If one of the children set it up for some other function, we have no idea to get it back to TV. This is sad, I'm beginning to think we need a keeper.
I sent an email to my niece a few months ago, she was so excited. I usually write out a long letter - have a hard time w/ writing anymore. My niece said it was so nice that I decided to join the 21st century. She doesn't know that my DD set that whole thing up for me, too.
Donna, good topic and I just love your phrasing. Funny, funny lady. Hope your backside is feeling better!
God bless. Alice.
