I was warned by a friend that I should be careful about painting so many cakes for fear that I might be labeled "The Cake Lady". So what better subject to discuss than Sandwiches............
We (60-somethings) are indeed a sandwich generation. We care or cared for our children and our parents at the same time. We remember when each family had one car, but out parents grew up when cars were only just invented and hardly anyone had one. We remember when there was one phone ... attached by a non-removable wire, in a centralized location in the homes in which we grew up. Sometimes those phones were even "party lines". I grew up with one phone for nine people and it was a four-party line. There were no long, meandering, basically pointless phone conversations. Now we all have smart phones permanently attached to bodies. And honestly, I'm not sure I'm as smart as my phone. I used to think I was pretty smart but now my phone has outsmarted me......I don't know how to use it. And then there is the subject of computers. Oy.
I used to type my college term papers on a portable electric typewriter. I had this little purple plastic cartridge that had yellow correction tape. You are all saying .... oh yeah, I remember that! Remember, if you made a mistake, you had to backspace to the beginning of the error, then place the correction tape between the carbon ribbon and the paper and then retype your mistake so it would appear white. THEN, backspace again and FIX your mistake. Now ..... as long as you have your URL's, JPG's, http://'s, and your GB's straight, you can send anything ... at the speed of light ... anywhere in the world!
That is unless if you are the Sandwich type, and computers elude you. Those of us who are the squishy peanut butter and the gooey jelly in the center of the Sandwich Generation, experience the immense frustration of doing even the simplest of tasks on digital devices. AND THEY CHANGE SO FAST. You no sooner kinda-sorta get the hang of something and some whipper-snapper IT Developer decides to Up-Grade it.
I'm trying to figure out how to "save this as a draft" so that in the morning, when I wake up "not so cranky", I might delete it. But the only button I can find is "Post".
