Last week, I hurt my back. No, not picking up heavy boxes. No, not shoveling snow. I was sitting in my car in the driver’s seat, and reached around to the back seat to get my purse, when I felt a twang. Seriously, it was a twang. I might have even heard it twang, but that could have been the blood rushing up to my brain to help it register the immediate pain.
This was after my trip to the grocery store, which means that I still had to get out of the car, get the groceries out of the back of the car and up the stairs to my kitchen. To add insult to injury, my next door neighbor had some construction, roofer type guys up on his roof, which is about 10 feet from our driveway. So, they were looking right down at me. Now, even though I’m old, I still don’t mind being admired by some constructiony type guys, even if it is only for them to think, “she looks good…for her age.”
So, I get out of the car and try to straighten up. To try and walk like someone who might draw an admiring (again…good for my age) glance. But instead I am walking like Ruth Buzzi did on Laugh-In when she did her old lady character.
So, what does this have to do with my Blackberry? Well, I spent the rest of the day on the couch, playing with my Blackberry (and no, that is not a euphemism). A few bucks later, I have a cute Christmas theme, and some nice apps to keep me organized. Isn’t it cute??? I love the color scheme. I got this theme at Blackberry Boutique***. I know it seems silly to spend money to make my screens cute, but I figure I spend a whole lot of time looking at that Blackberry, might as well enjoy it.
***Edited to add that they have made big changes to this theme. It no longer looks like it does here. Be sure and check out all of the screen displays because it is very different.
This is it people, the last day of the Cutest Senior Cat contest on Facebook. Smudge would like to ask you to please be so kind and vote for him. It is a really tight race, and he needs a nice big showing here at the end! He promises to not let the fame change him.
Smudge says thank you!
