It’s difficult for us seniors to keep up with the new technology out there for communicating with others. But once we get the hang of it we go at with full force.
Take for example, The Computer.
Most seniors are skeptical of purchasing a computer and getting started. Usually a son or daughter encourages their parent to get a computer so they can communicate by email to their grandchildren who always want to hear from Grandma and Grandpa. So good ol’ Grannie and Poppy take adult education courses to learn the ways to use a computer.
To their children’s surprise, they not only become very efficient sending emails, but to search, to forward (boy are they good at that, you wouldn’t believe the jokes they send out) and not to mention they know how to order online those adorable outfits for Tommy and Sally.
One thing I don’t want to see seniors doing is “texting”. The hand-eye coordination is as good as it was in their early years. So Granny, please keep that cell phone in your pocket and don’t attempt to text while driving.
