Up bright and early before the heat kicks in and off to the market with Wilf. There are fewer stalls around (even the market folk take August off ) but we were able to buy some cheese, fruit and croissants. The lady behind the cheese stall firmly told me that the aged Comte must only be eaten with a rich Burgundy. Wilf sat staring at the cheeses, savouring the smells and hoping that the stall would topple over.
As we sauntered back past the shuttered cafe ( are the absinthe drinkers imbibing at home ?) the new phone rang. Well, it didn't so much ring as sing. Much to the amusement of certain junior members of the family the new 'device' has been set so that the sounds of Shakiras Waka Waka boom out every time there's an incoming call. 'How cool is that' I asked Wilf. "Not very" he seemed to say before scooting off to christen the tyres on a yellow Renault.
Ah, Wilf, a man of good taste I note, in the matter of ring tones and cheese! As for mobile phones, my 2001 'vintage' Nokia is still going strong.ReplyDelete
Have a good week. Gail.
We are not technical terriers. All these new devices scare us.ReplyDelete
XXXOOO Daisy, Kendra & Bella
Someone here decided that the Spongebob Squarepants music would be a good idea for Mom's phone - didn't tell her and she was standing in the 'very quiet' bank queue that other day when it went off ... likewise, I didn't think it cool at all especially when Murray started to try and get me to dance with him (in the queue!!!)ReplyDelete
- a very mortified Clive!
Did you takes these pictures with your new device? If so, grreat job!ReplyDelete
Woofs and Licks,
Methinks someone did some tweaking to your new phone! I can sense that Wilf is nearly as underwhelmed with it as you. I think Bunny and Morgan might have tried to help the cheese stand topple over!ReplyDelete
Cheese & burgundy...contentmentReplyDelete
Don't you just detest new phones - until you finally "get it" and then it's time to upgrade again.ReplyDelete
Sounds like an iPhone to me! We've had the first and second generations and are now writing this comment from an iPad. In a week you'll wonder how you lived without it! ( what can I say? I'm an early adopter.) there's something quite astonishing about carrying all your music, photos, a shelf worth of books, a couple of movies, a dozen or so magazines (plus Nigella Lawson's cooking app) all on one slim tablet.ReplyDelete
Have you tried shooting any video yet? Oh yes, and my phone barks when the dog walker calls!
I detest cell phones and grumble every time mine goes off. I only have the thing because my daughter-in-laws told the wife that "old people should carry phones in case they get lost". The nerve, the dogs know the way back! :o/ReplyDelete
I'm looking forward to getting the IPhone. Just waiting until the kinks get worked out on the 4. Cheese and dogs go together. Don't you think?ReplyDelete
As long as it's not AT&T, you should be glad!:)ReplyDelete
I once had a watch that must've been created by the same makers of your phone! It was next to impossible to set it. The battery finally died to I just bought a new one. I'm a little leary of reading the instructions to set it to the correct time as I'm afraid it too will require a you to have a doctorate in electrical engineering to understand how to use it.ReplyDelete
i'd be happy to let you borrow my husband, who is an electrical engineer. ;)ReplyDelete
i'm laughing about your ring tone!
can i just say i sleep with my iphone, it has its own pillow. me, g, two wieners and randomly one or both cats... and my phone. i have zero idea how i sleep. :) yor junior members crack me up, i can see you fumbling with the phone trying to get it quiet, Wilf looking on. :)ReplyDelete
