Witness a Miracle, People!

Here it is, folks. The first ever picture taken by moi. Not shamelessly stolen from the internet. This is an actual photo of MY hand holding MY cell phone taken with my daughter's digital camera. Eventually uploaded to the computer after only several hundred attempts and cries for help. (she's grumpy when I call her out of the bathtub... or away from a good book... or from bed) Then after a seemingly endless search to find out where the darn thing was located in the computer... HERE IT IS. Yes, you saw it here first. A modern miracle. I'm sorry, I'm getting a bit teary-eyed, and swelling with pride. Sigh.

OK on with the post. A short one - not quite worth all this trouble.

Cell Phones Are a Great Way to Communicate With Your Teen. Especially When You're on the Bus Headed For Downtown Before They Even Get Out of Bed!

Text message from Ma to Mallory: 7:30 a.m. U up for school?

Text message from Mallory to Ma: 7:31 a.m. yea

Text message from Mallory to Ma: 7:33 a.m. What? Like it blows up?

Do you think you could teach TSB how to program her VCR now?

Hivy, I'm sure you will be pleased to hear that you have a good strong life line in that much photographed hand.
Tsk, tsk Mallory that's not the right attitude dude.

Poor Mallory. Boy do I remember feeling like that about school!

How unreasonable, someone getting grumpy just because you yank them out of the tub to help with your blog. Humph! Spoiled brats!
So what was your reply to her school-blows-up text?

Hehe, I like Mallory's optimism! But if she thinks school is a pain, just wait till it's over...And well done you! I can't get blogger to load pictures for love nor money at the moment :o(

Isn't technology wonderful! Glad you were able to upload the photo. By the way... how did kids ever tell their folks how much school sucks in the pioneer days? (You know... when I was a kid!) ~ jb///

I don't even know how to post internet pictures, so you're way beyond me.

I'm looking at your hand, and beginning to get worried. Your lifeline looks a little short.... (Of course, that might not mean much.)

Congratulations! You're ahead of me. I take pictures with my digital camera. No problem. But instead of loading them into the computer, I take them to the store and make them into a CD which I then use on my PC.

My new cell phone takes photos too. I haven't done that yet.

Ya know, I can see NOW why she wouldn't wanna go to school. You probably have cable with some decent channels, and when I was in high school we lived in the country and got maybe 4 channels counting public TV.

Lucky stiff!

Sounds much like conversations I've had with my son. I call him on my cell before my 8am class to tell him "if I have to be in class.......so do you. NOW GET OUTTA BED!"

Ah the miracles of technology!
...I have trouble finding pictures on the computer too - that's why I "borrow" them.
