Keeping In Touch

Velcro Beach, FL

Modern technology can be a great delight sometimes. The wresteler in the green & white uniform above is our grandson Nick. Nick wrestles for Adirondack High School. A couple of weeks ago they did a webcast of the tournament so Libby and I could watch it on the boat.

We had to watch for 5 hours until Nick's turn came up, and we had to run the generator the whole time to keep the computer fired up, but in the end it paid off. The picture above is from a screen shot I captured during Nick's bout.

Today, Nick is competing for the sections championship. They're not broadcasting on the Internet today (: However, his dad John is keeping us posted via cell phone. Nick wrested and won, once already this morning.

It was not many years ago when the thought of keeping in touch with family and friends this way was completely impossible. It's amazing how profoundly electronics and communications have transformed the modern world.
