In case you haven't noticed, there is an additional child in our family photo. I would like you all to meet the newest member of our family. She is the pretty little 7 year old in the purple dress. "Eloise" now has a little sister. We have decided to call her, "Amelia Bedelia".

     I mentioned in a previous post that I received a new phone for Christmas. I was overwhelmed with all of the features. It has a camera, but I rarely used it, because I didn't want to plug it in to the computer and then have to e-mail the pics to Wally World. That's just too many steps for this impatient woman.
     On a recent excursion I noticed an advertisement that said I could effortlessly send my pics to the kiosk using their new bluetooth system. All I had to do was stand in front of the instant print machine, select photos from my phone's gallery, select the bluetooth kiosk #, and voila my pictures appeared instantly on the screen in front of me. Does it get any easier than this? I don't even have to keep track of my little chip thingy.
     So now I have to explore all of the photo editing tools offered by my new best friend. The soft edges in the above picture and the crayon border in my header are both compliments of my phone highly sophisticated piece of technological genius.
      I'm sure there are probably some of you who are out there yawning, but I'm just thinking back to the dot matrix printer. You know, the one with all the holes along the edges of the paper....the one that always got off track and ended up jammed in a pile....so after several aggravating attempts you were rewarded with graphics that were a cross between cave drawings and bad pointillism. Only those, who are old enough to have experienced one of these painful episodes, can truly appreciate the beauty of modern technology.
     I would have to say that the above mentioned printers came out about the same time as those sun glasses (can you say CHIPS or Poncharello?) I guess it is OK for some of the styles to make a come back. At least I'll have plenty of pictures to blackmail Eloise with later.
