Dear Jane Jetson, Where did you get your Morning Mask?

Ok I'm so dating myself because I remember this episode from its original air date.



I have had TWO experiences with chatting face to face on my computer with other people in the course of THREE days, and I am going to have to start taking better care of my appearance now that people can chat with me at the ding of my computer!

Wednesday night, three other bloggers and I got together on Google + and chatted while we blogged for an hour.  I was so glad to be invited to this gathering.  It was FUN!  Tonight, my computer just started jingling while Kendal was looking up information on a Saint....kind of put the Holy Spirit in her because she didn't know what she had done to make it jingle.  Miss Alice was calling me on Facebook's version of Skype!  I had to download the "stuff" so we could chat back and forth, but I did, and I "called" her right back.  How cool is that?!?!?!?!?!

Want to know why Miss Alice is my hero?  Well, there are several reasons, and I have just decided to dedicate a whole post or two to her, but in a nutshell, she is my mom's age, and she never quits learning!  I so LOVE that about her.  While most people, sigh...I have to say this....MY age and older tend to shy away from technology and its gadgets, Miss Alice let her older grandson hook her up so she could see and talk to her children and grandchildren who do not live close enough to see every day.  I pray she goes out to tell all her friends what she learned and encourages them to see Facebook, smart phones, tablets, and computers in a different light.

I'm off to order my "Morning Mask," and I might look for an afternoon and evening mask too, but I will end with what I told Miss Alice's grandson,

"Your grandma ROCKS!"

My Grandma isn't into all the technology but she's on Facebook and talks to all her grandkids that way. She isn't afraid to learn new stuff either, i think she just doesn't know some of it exists. Shoot, I feel that way too. Congrats on the new chatting and good luck with that mask!

I laughed out loud at that post! I too have been sitting here in front of my computer only to hear it start jingling.....then I start panicking thinking OH CRAP!! I look a mess and someone's calling to talk face to face! I'm new to the Skype and really trying to use technology more....It's pretty awesome. Oh and let me know where to order the masks! I need a few of them too!

I had fun too! My 83 year old grandmother is on facebook, video chats, moderator of a few forums, etc. Technology geekiness runs in the family! If you ever have a tech question, feel free to ask! :)
