I talked to Grandpa on the computer

Last night I had the chance to do something I have never done before.   I talked to Grandpa using Grandma’s computer.  It was very cool.

At first I wasn’t sure what was going on.   Grandma set up her computer on the kitchen table just I was finishing dinner.    They pushed my highchair as close to the table as possible and placed the computer in front of me, just out of my reach for some reason.   The next thing I knew Grandpa’s face popped up on the screen and he started to talk to me.   It took me a second to decide what I should do.  Then I yelled out “Grandpa”.

It was great.  We talked for about 15 minutes (as much as I can talk).  It was nice to see him because he seems to be gone a lot.

I’m looking forward to the next time he calls.

That’s it for now

Thanks for stopping by


P.S.  Just in case anyone is interested, we used the built in webcam on Grandma’s Lenova Thinkpad.   Grandpa used a Logitech® Webcam Pro 9000.  He said it’s was the easiest thing in the world to set up.   And Logitec has its own network to connect through so there was no need to do anything special.
