Grandma, You Rock!

Many years ago, when the Picasa photo software was our specialty, we were contacted by Catherine who taught Picasa at a computer club in the Sun City community at Hilton Head. Over the years we have presented many seminars for her club and make a point to stop by whenever we are in the area.

This trip was no exception, and we're so glad we did! As we keep getting older, many of us start slowing down, getting less interested in the world around us and more concerned about our daily comfort. But, not the folks at this computer club!

It is so much fund to visit with Catherine and compare notes about things we've learned

We stopped and had lunch with Catherine, Honey, and Mark - all three of whom are very involved with the 3,000 member computer club at Sun City Hilton Head. You might think that lunch with people in their 60s and 70s might be a dreary affair, but you would be wrong. I felt so energized after this luncheon. The conversation was non-stop with everyone chiming in with their latest discovery in the world of technology. They all had smart watches and told us how the Apple Watch class at the computer club was one of their most popular offerings. Grandma doesn't want to wear one of those "I've fallen and I can't get up" necklaces - that makes her look feeble. But a watch that will monitor her heart rate as well as detect a fall and provide emergency SOS while she texts, calls, and listens to music? Well - that looks Cool!
