Technologically Savvy

When her family ridiculed her for being technologically ignorant,
Sister Velma surprised them all by getting her very own "Blue Tooth."

We all probably have a Velma in our families. Unfortunatly, I think I'm the Velma in mine. Happy New Year Mr. Petersen.

My Director of Finance decided that we all needed to upgrage our cell phones so he outfitted me yesterday with a new blackberry (I always thought that was something to eat but I was wrong). The past couple days I have been frustrated just trying to figure out how to answer the thing.

He said we needed these things so the staff could text message important information among ourselves. I just don't understand why they think texting is so much easier than just calling and talking. Besides that, I know how to spell the old fashioned way so none of them can read my messages. I am NOT going to wear one of those stupid looking contraptions on my ear. I guess I am just too old.

Anyway, thanks for the kind words. I hope you,
Daisy, and the kids have a good year too.

Wow, my jaw is hitting the floor. You may be the very first man over the age of 45 (I'm making an assumption here) who doesn't consider a blue tooth the ultimate fashion statement. You mean you don't walk around with one permanently stuck to your ear? You don't talk to yourself in public places? You don't flash a blue light during the Sunday sermon? Man, you are out of the loop. (snicker)

Happy New Year!!

I noticed that too; they're all old guys. They're obnoxious, annoying, and rude. And besides, those things clamped on their ears look stupid.

I have already received about three or four tickets for seatbelt violations and that hasn't changed me so, it's inevitable; I'll probably get cited for driving while talking. I don't know what the problem is. I can eat, talk on the cell phone, write, and read whild driving.
It's called "multi-tasking."

I heard that the Anti-Christ has a blue tooth also.
