Return To Duty

In the words of General MacArthur who promised fleeing the Philippines, under duress " I shall return" and did so....well here I am ready to go.  Barb is still in St. Mary's Hospital in Rochester recovering from her  broken arm and soon to return to "memory care." So far so good. I'm doing ok as the adjustment to living alone begins. I do have a new technological device which will help me blog called Dragon. I'm really excited about it as when I talk to it and it types for me on the screen. This is now called "word process". It's gonna take a while to catch on to it but with a little practice....
Here a sample of the first time I tried it.

Latin is a dead language. Dead as it can be. First it killed  the Romans and now it killing me....
(Read by me from  the back of Barb's old high school Latin text)

Starting Over, Accepting Changes - Maybe said...

I use the microphone icon on my iPad and iPhone to dictate texts and email. I occasionally use it on Blogger also. How does that differ from the Nuance Dragon program? I always have to be very careful as it sometimes doesn’t understand me well and then autocorrect may even change that and some of those corrections can be very funny.

I just started using dictation on my iPad. It makes some ridiculous mistakes so I have to proof it carefully.

Best wishes to Barb as her arm heals.

Ha, ha, my dad used to quote that little ditty! Good luck with your new computer program.

Thank you for your recent visit to my blog.
I have missed my blogging friends.
I do love to come and visit with you all when I get the chance.
I pray for Barb's comfort and for your peace.
Sending warm hugs from South Georgia.
I know that you all have had some very cold temperatures.
Stay warm, my friend....
