tech-NO-savvy …

….i have been missing in action…

 

well that is not all true…i have been busy yes…with ‘real world” things

like…

working

visiting my ailing granny

breathing

beach trips

enjoying life unplugged

but in the past couple weeks i have received a few personal emails asking where i have been?

what’s happened to my writings?

and why are you not taking pictures of life?

…believe it or not…i have not used my camera in 7 months… ( that is a sony cybershot over 5 years old now and i have to push the battery in each time so that it will actually take a photo)

…why the f8ck is that?

1. i have been enjoying life through my own eyes

2. i started a new job -> yayay me

3. i turned a year olderĀ  -> in number ONLY, but the recoup time gets longer each year šŸ˜‰

4. i was gifted a fancy “used” iphone 3…( apparently the very first iphone ever made..so i was told in canada when i went to one of those nasty cell phone providers to have it connected) but it did take photos šŸ™‚

….now i have a second hand gifted iphone 4s…and am so confounded and confused i at times must ask near strangers to help me just find the camera ….but its the siri lady that really freaks me out

who said all this modern technology made things easier?

,,,,,,from the laughter i get when lost in “appland” i have gathered thatĀ  i am not made for this current time…so much like my father i am…just minutes ago i started walking upright and lost the low sloping brow

but any who…..back on track and the point of this note…….while i was “away” figuring out new phones and such…..i smiled and giggled andĀ  i have shared, i the shed tears, and had massive brain explosions, ideas and plans developed … and i am still working many things out

…..wiiiiiiiiiiiiii ….

so if you are still out there…thank you for your patience and gentle pokes….and thank you for reading in the first place.

.i am sorry for my absence but i am back …for now….

and will be making some

..perhaps witty or funny and i hopeĀ  silly and surprising…..

posts in the coming moments of my life…

 

stay tuned for the insanity of “my ever growing meXican wedding plans” and other random thoughts and meows

lead paint, worms and mud pies….oh my!

i have seen this oneĀ  before in the mass forwarding of tidbits on the net…and today it landed in my in box again…and i just wanted to share…cause there is some truth to it…no???

TO ALL THE KIDS WHO SURVIVED the 1930’s, 40’s, 50’s, 60’s and 70’s!!

First, we survived being born to mothers who smoked and/or drank while they were pregnant. They took aspirin, ate blue cheese dressing, tuna from a can, and didn’t get tested for diabetes.

Then after that trauma, we were put to sleep on our tummies in baby cribs covered with bright colored lead-based paints. We had no child proof lids on medicine bottles, doors or cabinets and when we rode our bikes, we had no helmets, not to mention, the risks we took hitchhiking.

As infants & children, we would ride in cars with no car seats, booster seats, seat belts or air bags.

Riding in the back of a pick up on a warm day was always a special treat.

We drank water from the garden hose and NOT from a bottle.

We shared one soft drink with four friends, from one bottle and

NO ONE actually died from this.

We ate cupcakes, white bread and real butter and drank Kool-aid made with sugar, but we weren’t overweight because……

WE WERE ALWAYS OUTSIDE PLAYING!

We would leave home in the morning and play all day, as long as we were back when the streetlights came on.

No one was able to reach us all day.And we were OK.

We would spend hours building our go-carts out of scraps and then ridedown the hill, only to find out we forgot the brakes After running into the bushes a few times, we learned to solve the problem.

We did not have Playstations, Nintendo’s, X-boxes, no video games at all,no 150 channels on cable, no video movies or DVD’s, no surround-sound or CD’s, no cell phones, no personal computers, no Internet or chatrooms…….WE HAD FRIENDS and we went outside and found them!

We fell out of trees, got cut, broke bones and teeth and there were no lawsuits from these accidents.

We ate worms and mud pies made from dirt, and the worms did not live in us forever.

We were given BB guns for our 10th birthdays, made up games with sticks and tennis balls and although we were told it would happen, we did not poke out very many eyes.

We rode bikes or walked to a friend’s house and knocked on the door or rang the bell, or just walked in and talked to them!

Little League had tryouts and not everyone made the team. Those who didn’t had to learn to deal with disappointment. Imagine that!!

The idea of a parent bailing us out if we broke the law was unheard of. They actually sided with the law!

These generations have produced some of the best risk-takers, problem solvers and inventors ever!

The past 50 years have been an explosion of innovation and new ideas.Ā  We had freedom, failure, success and responsibility, and we learned HOW TO DEAL WITH IT ALL!

If YOU are one of them CONGRATULATIONS!

You might want to share this with others who have had the luck to grow up as kids, before the lawyers and the government regulated so much of our lives for our own good .

Kind of makes you want to run through the house with scissors, doesn’t it?!
