Letters from the Lunar Outpost

Envy always implies conscious inferiority wherever it resides.

Grandpa Texting

Texting for seniors! Yea! You go, you twenty-first century grandpa you!

I figured by this day and age, even the most non-tech-savvy of elderly people out there either have grandchildren or have seen enough kids around town with their thumbs flying on their little gadgets to skip the whole part of explaining what “texting” is and go straight to the good stuff.

I received this helpful guide in an email forward the other day (you know the kind of email you get that has all 20 or 30 recipients right there in the To: field for everyone to see?) and I figured it was well worth the share.
