Our kids are gonna think we are crazy...
I have been nagging my husband, Bob for years to download skype on his laptop...in case my computer is not working or something, then we can still see the granddaughter.
And I should add that I had given our only working camera back to James as it has video features, and Amber needed it.
Well, our Firstborn, is playing a game: guess the name of the grandson due any day now.
His latest tantalizing clue was about a score of 164. He knows we play Scrabble a lot, but when I pointed out that proper names are not allowed in Scrabble, he said that my rule is not valid---and indeed, there are boys names that also work as verbs, like: Mark, Will, Warren, ...in fact there are over a hundred of them.
Well, me and my big mouth pondered aloud last night how cute that would be to put on a Scrabble board. Bob instantly sprang into action: he just had to do it. right then.
So, now he is downloading Skype...so that we can take a picture of his work.
Aunt Sally is not going to believe this, but we skype together!(in the same room, seated not three feet away from each other!)
Five minutes later: we did it! Bob has his screen grab of the Scrabble board, and this is the second picture I took of Bob! Cute little wooden heart pull for the light above his head, eh?
