how smart am I?

Tuesday, December 4, 2012

Yesterday I left the world of 1999 and moved right on into 2012.

Yes, my sweet friends I purchased this.

It is the latest in smarty pants smartphones.

So guess which one of us is smart. I've learned that it is definitely not me. 

Okay, I admit that I have never even sent a text, but I thought I could at least figure out the phone part of it. After accidentally calling my sister FIVE times in a row, I realized I have a lot to learn.

In fact, it only took me two hours this morning to figure out how to transfer photos from my phone to my computer (must be a new world record)

The best part is I now don't have to remember to take my camera, which means I will be getting tons of great photos. 

Hmmmmm!!! Where is that dumb smart phone?

P.S. I also had to run out to Walmart in my jammies last night to buy a new printer because mine bit the dust. SIGH!


  1. Both my "tech assistants" left for college and my Mister is not as patient as I wish he could be. I can identify!

  2. Sorry about your printer. Isn't that annoying! My granddaughter has a smartphone and I can't believe the good photos she gets with it. It's amazing technology. Good luck with figuring it all out. :-)

  3. You'll love the phone once you get the hang of it. Have fun!

  4. I'm thinking of getting a smarty pants phone also but not sure I can deal with it all. I'll let you learn first! Hugs, Linda

  5. Welcome to 2012. I hope you took a picture of yourself in your jammies at WallyWorld. LOL! I just thought-did you ever see that website People of Walmart? You could be right up there!;>) xo Diana

  6. You go girl! I am laughing so hard at NanaDiana's comment. There are some odd people at Wal-Mart sometimes!


  7. Just remembering how angry l was with my new phone when l changed to a touch phone...oh my goodness, took me all day just to find out how to answer the darn thing :-) blessings Pam

  8. My adult children have smart phones and they take amazing photos with them. I'm still trying to figure out how to do stuff with my old phone. I'm not brave enough to go to WalMart in my jammies. I'd run into someone I know and it would be all over town. That's small town life for you. :)

  9. Good for you! I still have a dumb phone, but it works for me. I've tried to use my son's iPhone and felt like my fingers are too big!

  10. Oh, Laura, Your my kinda gal!! I'm still in the dark ages but one of these days....Good for you, You took the tecky plunge!! As for the p.j's in Wally world, I bet you were cute as a button..where's your picture?? from one sweetie to another~~~Roxie

  11. You are a brave soul-I hope it's not too difficult to figure out. Not ready to go there myself just yet, I'll wait and see how you do LOL

  12. oh how I dread the day when my old phone dies and I have to upgrade! my husband has a smart phone so that we can use The Square when we are vending at vintage shows. it makes me crazy but I can at least run the square and answer the phone now. a major accomplishment in my book. best of luck :D

  13. There's always so much to learn but you'll love it...I hope! Let us know! I don't talk on the phone much so I haven't been tempted..YET! Hugs!

  14. My hubby just ordered a smart phone! He's even agreed to cancel the land line. If we want to communicate with kids and grandkids, we need to be able to text.

  15. Oh so now we can look for you in People of Walmart videos? LOL. Laura.....snort.

    I have a ordinary smart phone, read, it's a year old android, and it's only in the last few months that I figured out how to get on the internet...don't laugh... All those young kids that tried to show me how has flashing thumbs, and fingers, I couldn't understand how they did it.


  16. Good morning, Laura. I hate to admit it, but I've been a pretty self absorbed blog sister, lately. I have had very little time to write blog posts and nearly none to visit my friends. I see the world has thrown you some curve balls lately, and I'm so sorry! (do you have a tv station, like we do that takes on legal misdeeds, to help their viewers? Just a thought.) I applaud your attitude and Atlanta is a vintage/antique Mecca! I would love to be in the area exploring. One day!
    God bless you!,

  17. I have a dumb phone.... although I do text -- or else how would I ever communicate with my daughter! They just don't like to actually talk anymore! Hubby's got the smart phone, though not the smartest phone on the block...
    Funny about the jammies!

    1. Forgot to say that I like your Christmas header!!

  18. Laura! Love your new Christmas banner!
    I have had my smart phone for about six months and I still have so much to learn! I love it when I am a passenger on road trips! Love Nana's Wallyworld comments. I think PJ's are acceptable attire 24 - 7 at most locations!
