Skyping with Papaw

Skype is seriously one of the coolest inventions of my time! Tonight, I skyped with my 87 year old grandpa and his wife. They are escaping the winter and living in Florida until April. They have done this for many many years and normally we don't get to see them for the 4 months they are there. Skype has made it possible to see them whenever we feel like it!

I think my Papaw is probably the smartest person I know! He has always been an extrememly hard worker. He ran multiple pant making factories from the ground up. He flew a twin engine pressurized airplane with multi-engine instrument rating. Since he retired he taught himself how to make guitars and violins!! Seriously, this man is so smart and doesn't even have a high school diploma!! He has kept his brain working by always learning new things and recently taught himself how to use a computer, email and now skype!! I pray that I'm as smart as he is when I'm his age!!

I love my Papaw!

I just wanted to let you know how I was spending my lovely Friday night! :) Thanks for the movie comments! I will let you know what we decide to see!

That brought needed smile to my face, I mean the idea that your papaw on skpe. I mean it took me awhile to believe he actually had a FB account and that your Mom wasn't the one controling the account for him.

Now skping has made be a believer that you can keep Hulon still long enough to teack him something. Maybe him and I skype soon and he can teach me the ropes.

Hope the tests go good for Matt, you two are in my thouhts and prayars.
