Can Teach An Old Bird New

Screenshot_20170411-214055 (Conversation with the daughter)

I learned how to do screenshots! LOL…yes, I did not know how. She told me how and the youngest son showed me. 🙂 Watch out family!

Just kidding………. maybe.

I started sending her animated gifs and she looked to see if she could. Who needs words to communicate? LOL  Too bad the animated part wouldn’t show up on the screenshot. 🙂

The more I think about it when the family and I text it is more emojis, abbreviated words, and now fun pictures. Who needs words! 🙂

I admit this is the reason I enjoy my phone. I could careless about the calling part or internet, etc. I like the fun texting and the camera! 🙂

What do you like about your phone? Or do you have one? Is that possible anymore?
