WOYWW 171 a elated

Yesterday, Monday, I received a belated birthday present, an iPad 3. So today, Tuesday, was spent trying to control it.  As I am NOT the owner of an iPhone or smartphone I have no experience with touch screen or how to operate it.  Late yesterday I started this post on Big red (iPad).  Cannot work camera or know how to post so back to Smithy, my laptop.  Yesterday, after many hours on iPad3 and Smithy, trying to "get it", picked up where I left off on making a travel journal.  So work top looks like a war zone.

and here is my new toy iPad3.  By next week hope to know a little more on how to use it.  I have been able to set up Google.  yes they do sort of set it up for you in the Apple Shop though you really need to have passwords with you and that was really set up in the belief that people buying it would really have iPhone, a Mac or iPad.  

I have reset passwords so many times before realizing that verification came on Smithy and finally calmed down.  For all you older folks on the trailing edge of technology.  We golden oldies can learn to use it and touch screen is super easy.  

Now on out for my 2 mile walk while it is cool then back to learning.  if you have never visited before stop by an check  Julia, and find out how to check out what everyone does all week across the world.


  1. Thank you for that encouragement. I've been wondering if I can live without one. LOL

  2. I praise you for your efforts at embracing technology, this is a product that is so easy to use and wonderful at the same time. I find the camera in them to be pathetic and not very high in quality. Apart from the ipad, looks like you are planning another trip LOL I know emphemera is good. LOL

    Happy crafting

  3. Ooooh, have fun with your new ipad!
    I have to admit that new technology always scares me a bit. It can be so intimidating! It took me forever to get a smartphone :)

    Your travel journal looks like it is going to be fabulous!

  4. We love our ipad, happy playing with ir.

  5. Well done to you for mastering the beast known as Big Red! It's all a mystery to me, I only get by with the assistance of my two live-in IT consultants (I pay them with food and ironed clothing!!).


  6. You go girl! Glad to see you are getting to grips with new tech. Don't worry about the mess as it'll all come good in the end. Hugs, Buttons #70

  7. LOL. I am only in my 30s, but just got my first i-anything for my birthday (ipod touch). It took over an hour of trying to figure out why it would not load my discs when connected to my computer before my neighbor told me that I needed to download itunes (but I dont want to buy music, I have music...ok, it doesnt matter...ok) LOL. Be brave and power through! i-anythings need better owners manuals ;) Good Luck! Have a happy WOYWW- Amanda #97 (oh, and happy belated birthday)

  8. You are way beyond me, I can barely figure out my cell phone. Have fun with your new technology. Thanks for stopping by my blog.

  9. That is when it's handy to have teenagers in the house, they're a huge help with the computer-y things! I'm impressed that you're "getting" it on your own, I really don't know if I could!

    Happy WOYWW!

  10. I would love a ipad good for you finding your way round it. your travel journal is looking good.. Have a happy week playing with your new prezzie.. Hugs May x x x#65

  11. Hi Monica,

    I don't have an ipad - probably won't get one. I looked at them in the store and the touch screen keyboard really was hard for me. I'm old school and have my fingertips resting on the keyboard.. woo hoo - you should have seen all the letters!!!

    I see you are from Kerrville. I hear it's beautiful mountain country.

    Thanks for stopping by my place already!

    Happy WOYWW
    Hugs, Kay #31

  12. Congratulations on your new baby, Monica! We are a fully Mack-ed out family and have been for 10 years. My husband knows a lot about Macs (more than the "geniuses") so don't hesitate to email me directly if you have any questions he can answer.

  13. Like your war zone - looks very creative and good luck with your fab ipad 3 - we in germany still having only the 2 - and I've non of them - so I'm not any help for you, sorry.
    Thanks for stopping by earlier this week.

  14. Welcome to the I world. I have been thinking of upgrading my phone but I want to take a class on how to use it online somewhere before I actually get it! So I can be savvy! TFS Tamika #162

  15. Ha, ha Monica - I just read this from last week. I got a Kindle as part of my birthday and trust me, that's as far as I'm going :) This gal's too old for one of those touch thingy thangs! Di xx

  16. I have been surfing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It is pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all
    web owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will be a lot more useful than ever before.
    Here is my web-site ... international finance
