The inside package one was plain as well, but inside was an iPod Touch, a birthday gift from Grenville (yes, he IS a sweet guy). We decided to hold off upgrading our current cell phones. (Grenville posted about a new model last Sept.) Our decision was because on avoiding added costs as we focus on selling our VA home to relocate to NH.
Grenville really enjoys his iPod, that can do about everything an iPhone can — except get and make calls — but at much less cost. Here’s WHY, this iPod Touch 4 (8GB) version was bought refurbished from the Apple website. Its one-time cost was less than one monthly bill would be IF we upgraded our cell phones.
There were other birthday treats — dinner at a favorite local restaurant (Grenville enjoyed the sushi), followed by candlelight watching of An Affair to Remember (Cary Grant, Deborah Kerr). ANOTHER birthday plus, lots of cards from family, friends and my best friend Pat/Grenville, and the well wishes of fellow bloggers.
Thanks Everyone — it’s going to be a great year!
YES, we did forgo the Super Bowl and commercials, and after watching online, my thoughts are that most were worth skipping; some were downright in questionable taste (you may know which these are). BUT, a couple of notable exceptions: The Ram truck commercial featuring a voice over over by the late Paul Harvey extolling farmers and the story of the trainer and Clydesdale horse.
