in Twirling and the opportunity to be an escort in the state Miss Colorado pageant. She is poised and talented. We are very proud and wish we were there to help
her celebrate her 12th birthday on July 1st. OK, you can stop growing up now. !!
Summer doldrums seem to have set in with nothing much going on. We have been playing golf, mostly early in the day and it is quite tolerable. The pool is a real treat and I use it as a bribe to get up in the dark and walk each morning, knowing I will come home and jump in to cool off and enjoy a coffee over the morning paper on the lanai. It's surprising how lively the neighborhood is at dawn.
I gave in to my conflicted feelings and actually bought a KINDLE. When amazon reduced the price, I was sorely tempted and then it showed up in Target and I capitulated. I'm still not 100% sold and find it not necessarily a good substitute for a real book. I'm talking about hard covers or large paperbacks.....there is something solid and tactile about a book and knowing how much is left and using an old favorite bookmark. Lately, the paperbacks have gotten much smaller in size and print. The Kindle seems more impersonal and not that easy to read in dim light, altho I love being able to change the size of the font. On occasion, I try and turn the page instead of pushing the button. And it is kind of cool to be able to sync to my iPhone or Mac and just continue reading. BUT, what I think I would really like is an iPAD...... it just seems a bit too expensive for an e-reader and a bit redundant if I have a computer. But like the iPhone, it just feels good. I'm still undecided but while I ponder this dilemma, I think I'll order another book for the Kindle.
