Normally I'm not all that "in" to technology. I don't mind it, per se, but I don't always believe it does us the favors those developing it want us to believe. But tonight...........K IMed her brother. They must've got talking web cams, because they each have the same type of laptops. Next thing I know Travis is hollering for me to get into the livingroom quick. And I suddenly find myself looking at K and the grands via web cam. We had no mike so couldn't talk.....typing while sharing laptops wasn't easy. lol And K and her husband were juggling 3 kids who all wanted to see Nana at the same time. We waved. We blew kisses. And yes I ate those kisses right up!!! It was truely wonderful! And the kids got a huge kick out of it.......asking if we could do it everyday! Alex says I'm beautiful. (i wonder why only males under the age of ten think so? ) lol Next week I get my FASFA loan refund. And guess, just guess what I'm buying myself??? A web cam and a mike!!! I swear, if any of you have family, most especially grandkids, far away....it's priceless. I'd give my left arm to see them in person, but this is the next best thing. Far better than a telephone call. And with K's phone connection a disaster........we can rarely reach her by phone.......again the computer is priceless. And it doesn't cost long distance. lol Wow. I am soooooooooooo happy tonight.
