Seniors and Texting


The following was e-mailed to me and it was too good to pass up. Yes, this could be called a lazy man’s blog, but it’s Wednesday and I’m tired – if you have a complaint, text me.

Wifey and I visited Mum yesterday at the Haven rest home. After the visit, I am convinced that I’m heading there like a runaway freight train!

A lot of “oldsters” have difficulties with the issue of texting. Specifically…the abbreviations can be a bit challenging. So, here is a list of them that may be handy for someone who is just a little older.
