Birthday Thoughts

Another year, another decade!Yes, he's still a windbag!  Jerry had both an old-fashioned and digital-age 70th birthday celebration. We gathered, we reminisced, we swam, we ate taco dip and birthday cake; we said hi to old friends and opened presents.  But...we also added a few ingredients that weren't even in our wildest dreams 70, or even 20 years ago. 

Think about it.  Would you have imagined that we could watch a slideshow of old photos on a 7 x 9" computer weighing 1.5 lbs.?…Using what? Wi-Fi, you say?

But wait, then imagine using your cell phoneCaroline came up with the cleverist gift! to take a picture and then share it instantly with family and friends across the country using an "app" named Instagram, or a "social network" called Twitter or Facebook!  It's not that long ago that we would all think someone had lost it if they told us these things.

Just sayin'.....what might be possible by the time we're singing Happy 80th?!   ;)

Thanks for stopping by at Hurley Travels.  Stay safe.
