Worth the Wait

Papa got a new toy,
 Mama got a new toy!
oh, and how we appreciate our new toys~
It's exciting!
It's been a very long time coming for us.
We are calling these items 'perks' of retirement,
our 'plus' of this material world we live in.
It's seldom, I say, that we ever get anything for 'us.'
His new cross-bow is allowing him to continue an outdoor
sport that he loves, into the age of medicare and tired eyes.
The highly up-graded pc for me is another
' learning curve,'  another challenge.  
Don't ask me for details, I do not know details.
All I know for sure is that this touchscreen is nice
and it's faster than ever, ( anything is faster than the dinosaur I was using.)  I can see my daughter snickering at that comment.
It's taking some getting used to, Windows 8., but I will 
' get it ' sooner or later.
If he's happy,  I'm happy!
At the September of our lives, we have earned ' new.'
For that, we are grateful.

Life is Good
