I mentioned earlier today that Melinda was talking to Ella on the telephone. If you don’t know what a telephone is, it’s an old fashioned long distance conversation device that restricted those using it to just hear each others’ voices. I suppose there was some advantage to this, like for instance if you were just getting up in the morning (right, Melinda?). But gimme a break, really. It is just so much more human to be able to see who you’re talking to.
Given that, Melinda and Ella switched their conversation to Facetime, a handy little application that is part of iPhones, iPads, and iDon’tknowwhatelses. I snapped this picture of Melinda’s iPhone as she & Ella chatted.
On the subject of Ella, embedded below is a video of a song I introduced to her last Thursday as we drove over to Granny’s & Grandad’s place for lunch. I like it so much I made her listen to it several times, especially as I was working out what the singer was spelling. R-E-G-R-E-T was easy enough, and I figured out too L-A-T-E. But what I D-O-N-E was tripping me up. So here you go, Ella. It just gets better with each listen, and like Facetime over the telephone, it’s nice to see Corb Lund sing it:
