On another subject, I'm so glad I let my brilliant daughter talk me into getting an I-phone (finally). I've found a lot of neat apps. Some of my favorites are:
Trip Color - an online travel journal that is just so, so easy to use;
Postcards on the Run - this thing lets you choose a postcard design, add a photo if you wish, add whatever you want to say, and the address you want it mailed to. Then for 99 cents to $1.69, they print the whole thing out and mail it for you, anywhere in the U.S. Amazing. I mean, you can hardly buy a postcard for 99 cents anymore.
Cards - Similar to Postcards, but this one sends any type of greeting card you want, in an envelope. Design your own personalized birthday, Christmas, thank-you cards, whatever...then just address the envelope. The app is free (as are all the others). Each card, mailed to any address in the U.S., is $2.99. I think the last time I went to look for birthday cards, I had a hard time finding one under $5.00.
Disclaimer - I haven't actually used the card apps yet. Well, I used them, but I haven't seen the finished product. I'm sending cards to my grandgirls, partly so that I can see and judge the quality for myself.
The photo above is just one of many wildflower pics I took on the drive down here. I have never seen so many wildflowers in my life! Fields and fields of color. And so many butterflies and bees just everywhere. Paradise!
