Ha Ha, well keep after it!  You will make it!

Good luck with your sewing room.  You will get there.  Talk to you this morning at our retreat planning meeting.  Hope all the connections work.

Last night we had dinner with a couple of nurses from my nursing class at Wayne State University in Detroit and their spouses.  Fun to remember the old days.  Graduated 54 years ago.  Glad we made time for this.  One of them has stage IV colon Cancer and the other lymphoma.  We had a reunion in 2015(50 years) and may try to have another at a 5 yr interval next year but not here  but somewhere else in the country.

OH MY GOSH!  You guys are going to fall down laughing.  I think I flashed Bob.  We are getting ready for our first retreat planning meeting today.  Cathy and I will be FaceTiming the other hostesses in Phoenix so we have been working out the kinks in a group FT.  I was just stepping out of the shower when my phone rang (my son usually calls me every morning about this time) so I answered my phone and it was Bob.  It took me a couple of seconds to realize he was on FT with me which meant he could see me,   I'm afraid that is something he is never going to be able to unsee.  Oh Lordy!!!

Stories like this make me so glad I've stuck with old-fashioned landline phones. stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes

We just got new phones at work and each has a little camera and a video screen.  Almost in unison, everyone in our department said "Um, noooooo.  Not having a camera on my desk phone."  As it turns out, we can twist the rim around the lens so as to shut the camera lens aperture, which we all did in short order.  We don't have to worry about flashing anybody (usually), but we DO have to worry about all of our eye-rolling, facial grimaces and other gestures when an attorney calls us with some ridiculous request or stupid question.  And yes, there ARE such things as stupid questions.  :o/

It’s a 10x10 room so it shouldn’t be so bad right? Lol

I have the opposite reaction.  Thank heavens for FaceTime!  Whoop whoop!
