“On Track” Winners!

I know this post is late --- at least for those on the East Coast! I had a phone emergency today. As in ---not quite dead as a doornail but going there quickly. You remember last week when it wouldn’t hold a charge?

Well, last Sunday morning on my way home from Florida it was also doing this thing where I could hear the person on the other end, but they couldn’t hear me at all. Then it seemed to be fine mostly, but sometimes the conversations, especially on the receiving end were crackly – meaning I could hear them, they heard me from the fizz, fuzz and crackle of a bad connection.

Today when I was trying to talk to my friend Karen, I could hear her fine, she could not hear me – and we resorted to text. I tried to call DH –--- he couldn’t hear me at all, though I could hear him, so we resorted to Tango, which is a video chat app.

My phone was going belly up and fast, and so he met me at the AT&T store to see what we could do, who’s account was available for an upgrade, and I replaced my phone. We decided that the little cute and slim case I had on the phone just wasn’t durable enough for the likes of me! I need a case that can BOUNCE. Literally. I am the biggest clutz, I am always dropping this phone --- so now it is in an “Otter” some what indestructible case – and we’ll see how it goes.

So now as I type this, the new phone is synching with the old one and hopefully everything transfers over before the other one is completely gone. Technology we love to hate, and hate to love, you know?

So let’s get on with it:

These ladies have all been contacted by email and I’ll be mailing their copies off to them as soon as I have snail mail addresses to send them to.
