3 cats at dinner

Over the last week, Bob and I have been hosting a couple of ladies from New Zealand.  For seniors these ladies have much energy, vim, and vigor for seeing new things.  We’ve been busy and you will hear about it in future blog posts.  However, during down periods, they took on the persona of a teenager, glued to their electronic devices.  In preparation for their 2.5 month visit to the united states (18 one-way flights internally to US); both bought an IPAD, cellphones, and other electronics.  Then in the evenings or other down periods, they were busy checking email, writing in diaries, cataloging photos, playing solitare, and generally playing with electronic devices.  Reminded me of my teenager, always glued to her electronic media.  So it was amusing to play the game of one-upmanship with them.  Took a picture of the three cats at dinner, edited it, and then sent it to them via email in less than five minutes.  They were impressed.

Author: Heres to ART not Cockroaches

Welcome to my life. My life as a mom is changing as the kids grow up, leave home, and build their own lives. This gives me a chance to rebuild myself as an artist, develop a spiritual path, and most fun of all, start going out on dates with my husband. Come here the stories about the small things in life that can make one very happy. Dogs running on a beach, great breakfast dates, kids and their adventures, and my own adventures in this wacky life. I'll share some of my progress in learning art while juggling a full time job as an engineer. And best of all, it's a chance for me to practice writing stories while keeping in touch with my kids. I look forward to hearing from you. Comments, thoughts, and invitations to meet for coffee are all welcomed. Enjoy the stories.
