As a senior citizen, it isn't always easy to keep up with new communication standards. A few weeks ago, my preacher asked me to text her if I was interested in participating in a food drive. When I mentioned that I didn't know how to text, I could tell that it took her off guard. I decided to try to learn more about texting, so I started meeting with one of my granddaughters once a week. We went over everything from switching electronic keyboards to the proper use of emoji. After a few lessons, I can say that I can text with the best of them. Check out my blog for tips on how to use your new telephone.
