It really wasn't planned.
Sadly, my trusty old LG obviously-not-smart flip phone took an unexpected *swim* last week, and was rendered mute by the trauma of it all.
So call it an early birthday present, or a several-times-postponed upgrade -- I'm thrilled to call this wondrous new toy phone my own.
Oh, the apps!
The photos here were taken using the iPhone, with the vintage photo Hipstamatic camera app. Nothing too fancy or complicated, but still fun.
And John gave me an iBird Explorer app, so now I'll have an interactive bird ID guide in my pocket wherever I go.
Maybe having a smarter phone will help offset my middle-aged forgetfulness? We'll see...
But there's one resident of our household who is less than amused by my fascination with this new iGizmo.
She can't play fetch with my new toy.
And she hates posing for these closeups.
