are you listening, grandma?

Merrilee Reid forwarded this photo, which speaks all too well to the generation gap.  And by the way, this is gender-neutral even though Grandma is mentioned.

I'm discovering that young folks don't email each other - they use Facebook or texting.  I watch my granddaughter type out a text with her thumbs even faster than I can type it on a keyboard.

I turn to Grandson #1 for assistance with iTunes.  And my 10-year-old grandson put together a PowerPoint for his dad's Lions Club that was superior to any that I have done.

So then I stopped to ask myself what it was that I taught my own grandparents.

Nothing.  I taught them nothing.  But I perhaps showed them my double heel-click.  Maybe.
