Uuuuhhhhhhhhhh

I got a new cell phone last year, not very long before we went back to Spain. I have to say that my one quick run through of the 200 page manual 11 months ago is not really standing me in good stead right now.

Don't get me wrong, I can make a call and receive one, if anyone called me, but I am having a few problems picking up my messages, I took a photo, and discovered a calendar, I even managed to look at my blog on line with it (how much THAT cost I haven't figured out); but darn it all, it took me five tries to save a new phone number.

The jet lag that is leaving me about as intelligent, witty and inspiring as an aging grey and stinking dish-cloth is not helping of course.

If I could only figure out where I left the manual last year. And our bedding, and our bits and pieces of clothes.

I found my cowboy hat though, and that is certainly very important.

that's it. Your punishment is that you'll have to walk with a good old-fashioned phone book now :D

Have you read the novel "Even Cowgirls Get the Blues"?GM

Well thank heavens for the cowboy hat!

Gadgets and jet-lag are a bad combination. Naps and jet-lag are much better.

You could probably look up the instruction manual online. We did that with our old coffee machine when we couldn't figure out how to re-program the stupid thing. Google works wonders.

The hat! The famous (infamous?) cowboy hat. I do believe you were wearing that hat when I saw you.
Great find!

Hula, well, I'd be quite a site with nothing but a cowboy hat, and the cell phone....

Bullwinkle, I'll have to send him photos of the girly bras to hold him over!

Beth, yeah, it was probably the same hat...the only one I've got here...
