The Miracle of Electronics

When Viola moved to our home in 2006, not only were there life adjustments for her, but she slowly got use to Satellite, Flat Screen TVs, A desk top computer in the living room, a lap top  "connected" to Betty's lap, Cell phones, Betty reading her Nook instead of a book, just to name a few. But tonight topped them all for her.  Joe brought our cell phone in the bedroom and told her to talk to her grandson Rob. (FaceTime)  We put it on speaker phone and turned up the volume.  She just giggled. I think she was trying to process as fast as she could, but she couldn't stop laughing to SEE Rob on the phone.

After we left her room, we talked to Rob for a bit and then I remembered Rick  from Rick & Paulette's RV Travels  had set me up awhile back with Google + Hangout. Rob figured out how to do it on his end, and BINGO there we were looking at him. So Joe and I had a good time visiting some more on a larger screen. Thanks again Rick.
