In celebration of Mr. AOW's birthday on October 28 and to curb the boredom factor of his being disabled by a stroke two years ago, I got my beloved an iPad on October 17. Ever since that date, I've been practicing with the device and nagging my tech adviser "J.
Another steep learning curve for both Mr. AOW and me!
To learn to use the touch screen and to stimulate his visual issues post-stroke, Mr. AOW has started out by playing games such as Bejeweled and Scrabble. On day three, he began surfing the web. Of course, as one with no computer skills prior to now, sometimes his frustration level mounts to the point of either hurting the device or turning it off.
I also created a blog for Mr. AOW. Visitors welcome! Tip: Mr. AOW collects jokes. If you prefer to send jokes via email, Mr. AOW's email is email@example.com.
At this point, Mr. AOW posts intermittently via my secretarial skills. Neither of us has mastered the skill of posting via the iPad, so I have to resort to using my computer to do those posts. Even so, Mr. AOW is gradually learning how to post comments.
If he takes to blogging, he'll be making blog rounds of his own.
And now he understands why I'm always looking at a monitor. LOL. There's a wealth of information in "that little box."
