Your message and the photograph combine together to make a delightful posting that is very easy to relate to on a personal level. Elderly moms and grannys are special people, and some of their idiosyncrasies can turn out to be a hoot. I really enjoyed reading this!
A very well-written poem about elderlyitis that kicks in somewhere between fifty and seventy when we become an embarrassment for our children and grandchildren because we don't understand modern technology.
Love this offering as it just demonstrates the 'disconnect' between generations' use of technology and the 'meaning' younger generations have attached to things that may or may not make logical sense... ;) :) Be happy grandma's trying and just smile! ;) :) Thanx for sharing and good luck! ;)
Yes, sad but true. I am almost in your grandmother's shoes. I was able to learn some technology from the children I was raising. She probably never had the chance to learn. Her world has changed too much, poor thing.
Technology is a serious problem for the elderly. But you treat the problem with intelligent humor. I love that the caps are locked so her greetings are like she is screaming. That's funny. And you knew that capitalizing the last two lines makes form follow function. Nice touch.
This is simply well done.
The best thing about this contest is its name -- it sounds so medically genuine. I have even noticed its signs in myself. However, this poem is a pretty good example. The poor dear is probably unaware of the convention that equates upper cASE WITH SHOUTING. And it is so easy to slip into it aCCIDENTALLY TOO.
