The Amazing Computers

The miracle of technology sometimes leaves me in awe. After all, I remember seeing my first television at age 5, and we had to travel to visit someone in the city to see it. My brother and I also got our pictures in that city's newspaper with a title something like, "Wide-eyed children see television for the first time."

Well, yesterday we advanced again. We have had a computer for about 16 years. I remember at the time telling my daughter we really would never need such a piece of technology in our home. Ha Ha. So now, we have added a Webcam and can talk and see the grandchildren through Skype. How great is that? It is especially wonderful for us because we are far away from the grandchildren and just a few phone calls to them doesn't make it right. Our Bichon, Kippy, even got in on the act and said hi to Rachel yesterday.

I can only imagine what will be available to our grandchildren and great grandchildren in the future.

  1. We finally have our first grandchild - 1000s of miles away BUT our son hooked up a web cam over the crib and a web site so we can check in and see baby when he's in the crib. Technology is indeed incredible.
    Love your pepper grinder.

    Congrats! Now you really are going to have fun! Can you imagine if the class of '63 members started laughing on Skype too! I might even have to hook up the webcam so you and Dave can chat! HAHA!
