Dad Gets A Smartphone And Learns To Text

My mom got my dad an iPhone for Father’s Day, and my first text from Dad arrived Monday.

He needed a day or so to figure out how to text on this “newfangled thing,” but once he figured it out he didn’t mess around with just words. He sent me a pic! Of my grandma’s 1980-something Buick. And he didn’t say a word about it, just the pic.
This is going to be a wild texting adventure with Pop.

People Who Use “Like” and “You Know” A Lot Are Thoughtful and Smart

Surely you know someone that's a "like" overuser and inserts it into places where it would be fine if it was, like, not there.  You know?

I read something today that said people who are constantly inserting the words and phrases "like," "you know," and "I mean," are not ditzy and immature if that crossed your mind.  In fact, they may be more thoughtful than everybody else.

I had a friend once who would constantly say as the conversation was dying down, "I don't know, you know?"  Actually, she had the amazing overall ability to plop in a record number of "you knows" in any sentence.  I swear she could pack ten of those things into an eight word sentence.  It drive me insane!  But perhaps she was onto something.

Me neither!

Kids! Mama Got Roped Into Getting Another Pet.

Kids always want a pet it seems. My three daughters seem to rotate the duty of asking for a new pet, even though we have a miniature schnauzer named Harry and he's a good boy and not in danger of losing his role in the family. When I point out that we could just settle in and be content with Harry, they inevitably ask, "Ok, but when Harry dies, can we have a cat?"

I don't know whether to be upset, or just be thankful that they are forward-thinkers who are already planning for the future and setting lofty goals. It's the little things.

I finally caved and bought a fish. I too love aquatic life and supported the girls in their $4 decision to invest in Maddox the Betta. But here's why I'm having pet regret.

Need to Boost Your Library of Emoticons? Here!

Do you ever feel like you're not using your full emoticon potential?  I do.

Everyone else seems so much better at cyber emoting!  So I decided to do a little research to get better with the cyber winks, and I decided to share what I found.  You may be all over these already.

Wanna Text 911? It Could Happen Soon in East Texas.

It's usually so much easier to text someone rather than pick up the phone and call.

To your sweetie: "Could you grab some wine on the way home?"  It takes a minute when actually dialing and calling might take five, because your spouse things of a hundred other things to tell you while you're on the phone.  And hopefully the reply is a simple, "Yep!  ;-)"

What about emergencies?  Is texting the quickest way to 911?

It may be coming to East Texas.

Several Boating Accidents Reported Over the Holiday Weekend

My grandparents had a cabin on a lake in Nebraska, and as I was growing up some of the best memories came from spending Sunday afternoons there swimming, fishing, and learning to ski.

My grandparents lived there year round, but with everyone else flocking to the lake during the summer, my Grandpa would always say Memorial Day marked the beginning of "silly season" at the lake.  The lake was usually pretty quiet, but during the summer months the extra crowds, boaters, and campers changed all that.

Summer is busy for lakes, and it can also be dangerous.  Have you read about all of the boating accidents that happened around East Texas over Memorial Day weekend? One of the accidents involved a Game Warden.
