imagesLast week, Patti and I were in Florida visiting her mom and dad. Her mom had an 85th birthday and more than 40 showed up at the Olive Garden to celebrate the big event. We were a surprise along with our sister-in-law, Lisa, who also attended.

It took several days for us to celebrate her birthday. While we were there, Virginia mentioned that the phone we set up for her wasn’t working. So we went to the nearest AT&T store to get it fixed. Off we went.

AT&T told us that her phone was not eligible for an upgrade, but mine was.

So, here’s what we did. I gave up my phone to Virginia so she could have a phone. AT&T fixed her right up.

Then I upgraded my phone to the new iPhone. Now, I have always felt that irony was a great element of true humor.

The funny part? Stage 4 cancer boy had to sign a 2-year contract to upgrade the phone. That really made me laugh!


Recommendation: If you haven’t seen Silver Lining Playbook, do so. We just got back and I think it was the best movie of the year — it being February and all. Brad Cooper was just amazing!
