I have so many thoughts to post and I really REALLY must get back to Geek Love but had a quick minute to post something…
I have the pleasure of visiting a nursing home and really it’s a residence; sometimes, it reminds me of a college dorm – always stuff going on! activities and field trips and – let’s just say, this is the kind of place I would feel fortunate having as my ‘last’ address.
That said, I’m delighted to be teaching a few residents about Personal Computers; specifically, setting them up for email.
A few of the ladies are showing interest but do not have anyone to email with. (breaks my heart.)
Ready? I am asking anyone who would like to be a PEN PAL (or is it a keyboard pal?) for some of my star pupils? It’s just a glimmer of a faint idea – it may not pan out. It is a real challenge to use the mouse and the keyboard and I need to give them some motivation, ya know?
So I thought about all my blogger friends?! who might want to ‘meet’ some dear sweeties and just converse about anything – pictures of where they live, perhaps, your pets? EVERYONE LOVEs ANIMALS.
(It’s likely that I will end up doing all the typing and thinking of what to write, but hey – I said it was just the START of an idea….)
SO, let me know with a comment if this interests you.
OH!!! I titled this ‘Graphic Novels’! Better say something on that, huh? One of the residents is named Ken and today he showed me his ‘drawings’. I was flabbergasted with his talent and charm! He had created a graphic novel (and he was all impressed with having this CONCEPT explained) – – about how he had lost his wallet, with pictures of his bureau turned upside down, him attempting to sweep under the bed, etc. And then, Anna – one of the nursing aides, was depicted as an angel who sweeps in and finds the wallet to save the day. It was precious. He was thrilled that I praised it so and I’m still thinking about his talent!
Anyway, had to share.
