    OK....  toddle waddle   inch   FLASH forward to November  2014...   SHE got a Burr up her butt... and   Went   Kicking and Screaming  into the Modern World...      SHE gotted a Smart Phone... and had the Land Line Ported over to it... and POOF...  No more Land Line on this hill.      
   HERE it is.....  on the Bidness side...

Our Mom too !!!!! she hated giving up her little 'chocolate' flip phone, It was small and thin and fitted in her pockets but now she has a smart phone and it is big and doesn't fit well in pockets and she doesn't like it at all. She can barely do much more than answer it and even that caused problems to begin with :)

Lady loves her smart phone - we don't think it is so smart, more annoying as it is too easy to take our pictures.

Parental Unit is getting the itch to trade in her ancient IPhone 4S for the 6 plus. It's makin' her feel like an old fuddy-duddy!

Charliedownunder said...

Crikey ...... that's very brave of your Momma ...... I can't wait to hear MORE tomorrow. Can she make phone calls yet or just take selfies..

Murphy said...

She is coming along just fine. In no time she will have pages and pages of icons of all the apps she can't live without. Can you see how fast we are talking with our new high speed Internets!?!?

Your Pals,

Murphy & Stanley

JoAnn Stancer said...

Good for your mom, she is going to have so much fun with the new phone. Great selfies.

Millie and Walter said...

We don't have a smart phone but haven't had a land line for many years. We hope your mom enjoys learning all the fun things she can do with her new phone.

Ruby said...

We still have the land line cause Gpa likes it and doesn't want Ma to gets rid of it! Also, she has a DSL line that she rarely uses on it, so a back up is always good. Anyhu, Congrats on gettin' one of those smarty ass phones!!! Ma likes her's I guess, butts hers has a small screen and isn't good for nothin' interestin'.
I keep tellin' her it's time to upgrade, butts she justs pffffft's me!
Can you believes it?? Yeah, peeps are strange, huh?
Can't wait to see what's up for tomorrows!
Kisses,
Ruby ♥

Ha ha ha, it's an adjustment but I love my iPhone now. It took a while though. :-)

cupcakepetrillo said...

Taking a proper selfie takes patience. And long arms. I don't have either one. And I think your arms are shorter than mine!!!

Love and licks,
