Wow...started one direction...then it went another...


I'm flying my flag today....
Thank you to all our men and women...
who have served...
and who are now serving...
to keep our country safe...
thanks to them we are able to blog...
text...facebook...e-mail....
and communicate with wonderful people....
from all over the world....
I so much enjoy reading blogs from all over the world...
I love keeping up with family and friends from
all over on facebook....I don't twitter...
but I can e-mail photos of my new grandson
 to every one I know in a matter of seconds....
I can watch videos of my nieces....
send photos over my phone...
keep up with people I haven't seen in years...
pay my bills...order anything you can think of...
but I still enjoy a personal note....or a handwritten card...
even postcards...and looking at photos just picked up from
Walgreens or where ever they are printed....
with all the technology we have...
don't let the art of  handwriting notes...cards...
putting special notes on the back of a photo die...
wow...don't know where all this came from today...
just started typing and this is what you got...
so what tradional things do you hope don't die...
with all the new technology we have???

As much as I love my digital camera and the ease of uploading to my computer, many photos don't get printed out now. I miss the ghostly negatives! I miss going through all the "bad" shots that used to be funny and are now previewed and deleted seconds after being taken. I really worry that no one in the future will know the joy finding a box of old photos in the attic. With the pace technology changes, will our digital scarapbooks even be viewable in 20 years? Or will they be old, obsolete technology that no one can access, like an 8 track tape without a player? LOL! You got me going too!

I'm with you on that Dawn...don't you just love looking at negatives trying to figure out who it is and what they are doing....and all the awful pictures..out of focus...horrible faces....where will they be now????

That's so true about the old pics. We delete all the bad so will our kids ever know bad pics of themselves.
Just wondering.
Thanks for coming by and your flag looks so nice blowing in the wind.
Have a nice day Deb,
Cindy
