Welcome to the 21st Century

I am in Idaho visiting my mother, introducing her to the 21st Century. She got a computer for Christmas. I bought it and played with it for a couple of weeks and finally worked up the courage to take it to her. I have spent a couple of days teaching her how to use it. Bear in mind, she had never even used a mouse, has no knowledge of computer language or anything.

Doesn't she look like she's really getting it!

I think we have mastered "point and click". She has a hard time finding the big red "X" to get out of a window.

I wrote detailed instructions on accessing the internet, checking email, and writing email. Abby promised to help her more when we go to the cabin. She can get to everybody's blogs so she is caught up on the family. It is nice to have her at my fingertips finally.


  1. Go Gramma Go! I was just thinking the other day Kathy, that your mom and my parents seemed to be from the same generation. I wish I could get my parents on the computer and internet. We would be so much closer!

  2. YAY!!! now you have to get me grandma's email address and yours so i can invite you to read my blog and she can at least see pictures of my little riley. :)
