It will come as no surprise to any of you that I do not own a smart phone, I do not have access to the Internet on-the-go; but, on rare occasions, I do understand the value of that convenience. Anyway... on Tuesday we were transporting the grandchildren from our home back to theirs in the late afternoon and we decided that we would stop and pick up a pizza for dinner after we had delivered our pint-sized charges back at their place. I suddenly realized that I didn't have the phone number for Papa John's with me and I wouldn't be able to phone ahead and order the pizza to have it waiting for pick-up. I doubted that our son and daughter-in-law even owned a paper phone book for reference to said phone number and I had no idea how to access their home computer when we got to their house to look it up. I was thinking these thoughts out loud to Mr. Goodneedle when this little voice from the backseat piped up:
"Nana, you can use you 'puter..."
"No", I responded to Gregory, "Nana doesn't have a computer in the car".
Gregory: "Yes you do, you have your 'turn right, turn left' one" he exclaimed.
He was right! We did have a computer in the car, our Garmin not only offers directions but also lists restaurants but their phone numbers as well! What a smart little boy. We pre-ordered our pizza, thanks to Gregory, and our little backseat driver could barely wipe the smile off his face. He isn't even three years old yet. I am thankful, taking care of us old folks is a big job for this little guy!
They don't know it yet, but one day they will.
These four precious children take care of me... each and every day.
