Yes indeed. Technology and little Billy have come to an accord. I am now the owner of an I-pad Mini and a full size roll up Blue-tooth keypad! This 21st century stuff is really kind of fun! Now all I have to do is figure out how to use the thing. Easy, you say? Well, let me put things in perspective. When we got home from the store last night I immediately wanted to be sure the little devil was fully charged, so I take out the cord and the plug Now, I'm advanced enough to know the plug goes in the wall. But there's this lightning adapter thing that goes into the I-pad. Sure it does If you know where to put it. I search for the connection. Cath searches for the connection. It's hidden. It's been a long day. I'm tired. I am willing to admit defeat. So I put it down and pretend it doesn't bother me that I can't even plug the darn thing in. That lasts about 25 seconds. I will not let a piece of equipment get the best of me, I Google how to plug it in. Let me tell you, there are hundreds of articles about how much power an I-pad mini has and all the things it has to offer! NONE of them says how to power the devil up. After 20 minutes of searching, I mistake upon a diagram that shows the different parts of the mini. Voila--there it is--right where it should be. I even figured out how to charge the key-pad. I can now go to sleep assured that in the morning, I will be ready to go. Morning comes. The I-pad is charged. I get to move on to the next challenge. Aps! Now understand, my flip phone doesn't do aps! And there are a lot of them! I could be looking at aps for the next thirty years. I never have to leave home again! I think I even found a bathroom ap! Maybe not. Anyhoo, here I sit in my man cave with the television playing oldies, the roofers next door running the air compressor so I can barely hear the oldies, realizing that you can teach an old dog new tricks. It just takes a while! If you need me in the next few days, you'll know where to find me! Heck, just e me! My Mini will let me know! Oh, and the ezbz ap says to tell you you are loved!
