that’s exactly what it was like at Thanksgiving when my son, DIL, and her sister were here. The TV was on, and we were all scattered around the family room-my son was on his computer, DIL and her sister were texting or something on iphones, and I was answering emails. I looked up. looked around, and thought it was crazy, and went back to emailing. We actually were sending each other things to look at online while we were siting inches away from each other, wow.
It’s a ‘brave new world’ out there, for sure!
PS I’m enjoying your blog!
Thank you, I’m glad i found you, too!
I’m lucky, my parents can’t use any sort of technological device 😀
Daniela – you are lucky my 90+ mother has discover email and I must get 10 calls a day on why something went wrong in her sending it, and why can’t it just work like a typewriter! But I give her credit she is determinded to keep up if it kills her or more likely me.
My most fun day was when I took her to the senior learn computers class a room with about 15 seniors without a clue going through. Step 1 you turn on the machine and wait till you see the pictures on the screen. I went home totally limp……………….
Oh, boy, Joanne, your mom is such a trooper; I think she must be quite amazing!
Hopefully I am as sharp when I am that age
Daniela, you must introduce me to your parents, and I will teach them! You’re welcome. 🙂
Was this Thanksgiving dinner?
Oops, Jude beat me to the punch!
This is sort of like the punch ‘n’ Jude show, right? I know, I owe you a loong letter, I’m sorry, but what can I say? I’m bone idle, FS. Baci, anyhow.
Yes, Prodigal FS, it was Thanksgiving coffee with all the trimmings, and then they had the nerve to ask for “More”. Honestly, some families.
It’s probably as dysfunctional a situation as many of us in the US experienced at family Thanksgiving dinners last week! At least there was no sniping at each other at your table.
Hi, Jude, it is so nice to hear from you. No, there was no sniping at this table, it was pure coincidence they were on their devices at the same time.
Hi, Joanne. And, they weren’t texting each other … I think. 🙂 (Or, should that be “I don’t think”??)
Well today is almost a miracle to have what appear to be family members together in one place
Look at the bright side they are all at the same table
That’s about right!
And, I didn’t even ask them to pose!
but Rick too? Really?
The camera never (well, seldom) lies!
