Thankful Thursday

I'm thankful that hubby and I are headed to our boat for the weekend. We also have a cruise to attend with our yacht club. We've been missing lots of our local cruises because of IOBG. It's good to get back to some boating.

I'm thankful that we'll be seeing some boating buddies that we've not seen in quite a while. I miss our time together and it will be good to catch up.

I'm thankful that I'm finally well. I rarely cough anymore and I feel great. I cannot tell you how thankful I am about that. Feeling good rocks.

I'm thankful that hubby and I decided to get smart phones. I've not had a cell phone since I retired in 2003. Don't laugh. It's time. Hubby and I are scratching our heads a great deal over not knowing how things work. It will be quite the learning curve. We each have a phone that looks like this:
I'm thankful that Seymour the pet rock and his sidekick Element are here for a visit. They are up to something and we've a feeling that Element is just as bad as Seymour. I love Seymour, but I don't trust him one bit.

What are you thankful for today?

  3. smart phones tend to make me feel stupid. For those of us born when everyone had a rotary phone there's a bit of a learning curve :)
    Have a good time on your boat

  4. You got me wondering about the phone. I think it's about time that I get a cell phone. We've been having so many problems with my land phone and it seems that Bell is not really helping a lot. The day before, I didn't have the use of my phone for over 3 hours and is crazy.
    Have a fantastic time on your cruise ship. Oh by the way, what is the name of your ship? See ya Sandee & Zane.

  5. I would get your grand kids to teach you about your phone. My 3 year old can maneuver it faster than me. It's scary. Glad you are felling better!

  7. I'm thankful that you and your husband are able to resume the activities that you dearly love. I never gave up the cell phone at retirement, but I often feel like I am still on the learning curve. Have a blessed cruise.

  10. Sure glad you are feeling better. Also good luck with that new phone. It is so frustrating learning all the new fangled stuff.

  11. Before I had a smart phone, I thought I don't need one. But after having one, I cannot do without a smart phone. Enjoy your time with your boating buddies.

    1. We're enjoying our new phones. The world is at our fingertips. That's kind of neat. :)

  12. Being well again after being sick is such a joy! Tell Seymour and Element that if they can't behave, they can't come visit any more. That might get them to at least rethink their nefarious plans long enough for you to catch whatever-it-is and thwart it.

    1. We're working on that. They are fun though. I have to give them that. :)

  13. I'm glad you are well and enjoying the boat. You both worked hard to get it ship shape and deserve to enjoy the fruits of your labor. That looks like a great phone! I am an iphone gal, through and through though. I tried switching and hated it. You will love the conveniences having a smart phone add to your life, especially the camera!!! That's always my favorite part. Have a wonderful weekend!

  18. My mom always said you have to watch out for the silent type, so I wouldn't trust Seymour either. :)

    I too switched over to a smart phone. Like everyone says, once you do, you fall in love. :)

    Glad you're feeling better!
