    Did you think about something like a Kindle "Fire" tablet ? It'll hook up to free WiFi and it's every where now (fast food, coffee & doughnut shops) only $200 new! With my eyes, it's a lot better than those smart phones. BTW: for a hundred more you can get one of those Samsung "Chrome". They're like a laptop version of a smartphone. Same thing, you can hook up to the internet at any place that has free WiFi.

    Welcome back compadre! Couple months ago I bought a Samsung Galaxy at Wally World for $120. It cost $45/month for an unlimited time card, but that is cheaper than a phone contract!
    Its good to hear from you!

    Yep Hal,
    I got one when I knew it was going to be awhile before I got back online. But my bad eyes cant see the fine print on the small screen.

    That is the next news I want to post...I need cataract surgery. I also have a driving job as soon as I get that done and can get my CDL. I had the exam Friday...09/06 and am scheduled for a surgeons consult so he/she can give me the scoop on what is going to be done. That is on the 17th. I will know when the surgery is on that day so as soon as I know whats up I will post again. I am lookin forward to being able to see the sights again. My left eye is ok but I got a really bad right is like lookin through wax paper.

    I cant wait for this to be done. The squirrels and rabbits are over running the place and the coydogs are hot on their tails.

    Now that I am used to shootin with my left eye, I am wondering if I can shoot a runnin rabbit with one eye and a coydog out of the other?:D

    Oh...and thaks for the comment. I appreciate them all.
