Silly Saturday Night Post: Cool! You've Got A Web Browser!

10 year old with Grandpa Oso's Blackberry

She turned 10 three days ago.  This morning my grand daughter and I drove to the Pusch Ridge Stables in Catalina State Park for her first ride.

The drive took 45 minutes, and on the way, she asked to see my Blackberry.  The next ten minutes were a monologue to no one in particular, emanating from the little one in the back seat.

"Cool!  You have a web browser!"  "I wonder if I can get to my email on Verizon.net?"  "Whoa!  That's fast."  "Let's see what other applications you have on this thing..."  "A bunch."  "Grandpa, did you know you can watch TV on this?"  (I didn't.)  "My daddy just got one of these, and I'll bet he doesn't know it can do this..."  "You have your own schedule on this!  Let's see if I can put everything we're going to do today into your schedule."  "May I?"  Sure.

Ten minutes later, she had scheduled the horse ride at 7:00 a.m., breakfast with friends and Grandma at 9:00, the International Wildlife Museum for 11:00, going to the pool at 3:00 and a night visit to the Desert Museum for 6:00 p.m.

I would have been president of the universe at age 60 if I had half the brain she has when I was her age.  LOL

Keep up, Grandpa!
