(Neoprene) Pink Saturday





I went here to get my orientation for...

My brand new iPad in its pink Neoprene case

My colleagues were very generous when I retired and I knew I wanted an iPad to mark my retirement. On Wednesday I bought it and today I went for my orientation. Our teacher was very good and I think I've got (most of) the basics. I spent some time earlier downloading applications and Blogger was at the top of the list. I am hoping to blog while I'm away and this will be a lot easier than using the tiny little keys on my phone to do a blog post. I've got this bright pink case to travel with and a baby blue stand to use.  

I took a number of pictures and just couldn't get one I really liked. The chair that the iPad is resting on was part of my grandmother's bedroom furniture and goes back to the 1940's. My mother redid the seat and I am so glad to have it. I wish we had kept the rest of the set. The head board was the same design and very old-fashioned, and I adored it. 

Now I'm about to try and figure out how to see my kindle books on my iPad. O Technology!

Please stop by and visit the great blogs at Pink Saturday and have a very sweet Sunday!

As we used to say in grade school, "Lucky duck!"
... seriously, your colleagues sound like very caring folk, Carol. I'm sure you're missed!

Now, your grandmother's chair caught my eye immediately! Isn't it heartwarming to live with some-thing every day that evokes sweet memories?

Sweet dreams and many hugs,
Myra

Very cute! I have been debating getting an iPad but it will be down the road in the future. Have a good trip and can't wait to see your blogs from your new toy :-)

Hugs!

Wow, a great a gift! You should get a mini bluetooth keyboard for it. I got one for my ipad mini and now I can use it to type faster than I could on the virtual keyboard.

Congrats on your new iPad. It will be nice to have when traveling. I've never wanted one as I have a laptop that travels very nicely but I did have to get a new Kindle as my old one went on the fritz. Hope you have a wonderful Sunday!

How nice that you got an iPad retirement gift. I'm sure you will enjoy it . I need to take a class on hOw to use mine. I've never tried posting a blog from it. Have a great week. Hugs, Lura

I just posted pics from Denali if you want to see them.

what a wonderful gift! so thoughtful. I think your chair is fabulous. I've never seen one quite like it (not that I know tons about furniture- but I've been snooping through vintage shops and antique malls for a year or so now so I'm acquiring a bit of a visual library) I'll bet the headboard was amazing.

I want any kind of tablet in the worst way -- but it's not in the budget. Boo!
