What a Birthday I had!

seniorgal_gwSeptember 15, 2012

Thursday was my 90th birthday. My oldest daughter surprised me by arranging a stopover on her way from Wisconsin to New Mexico. Two of my daughters live very close by. They had planned a birthday dinner which my younger grandson was able to attend, too.

The most fun was my first Skype experience. With much pre-planning by my family and using two laptops, two phones and an Ipod I received a Happy Birthday serenade from my daughter and her husband in Ohio, my granddaughter in California, my son-in-law in new Mexico, my granddaughter in Virginia, and my grandson in Massachusetts. That is my whole immediate family!!

Almost worth getting this old to have an experience like that!!

Glad you were able to share and make new memories for all. There is a way you can print from Skype but I don't know it.
Happy Birthday

HAPPY BIRTHDAY! You can also capture pictures, from a Skyping experience, and print them off later.

A belated Happy Birthday, Seniorgal. Sure was sweet of the kids to plan such a special day for you--and keep it a surprise, too :-)

My mom is visiting, just over night and she is 83. I sure hope that I get to wish her a Happy 90th Birthday someday.

Oh wow what a great Birthday! Happy birthday to you!
My mom just celebrated her 90th birthday August 24th and my mother in law is having hers Sept 21st. We are surprising her with a party and mini reunion.
The Skype thing was a fantastic idea.
Congratulations!

That is so cool! Hurray for technology! Imagine how great things will be in 50 years. I remember when TVs only had three channels and you had to wait an hour or so to make a long-distance phone call. No computers or cell phones. And Happy Birthday from me!

I had no idea you were approacing such a milestone. Congratulations to you. My mom just turned 91 and is finally entering the computer age. We bought her an ipad! And she is learning to use it.
