My Role Model and her new iMac

Marjorie the First, my mother, at Thanksgiving

Good Morning, God!

Thank YOU for my marvelous mother! For some time she has been telling me her computer was dying. But, I kept thinking it was just a power surge that had turned it off and turned it on again. However, she was right! Her 8 year old iMac was dead.

So yesterday I rushed off to the Kahala Apple store and got her a NEW iMac. As she said in an email “I must be crazy but at the age of 96 I bought a new computer!!! The one Barba gave me finally died…dead as a doornail. And I felt absolutely lost without one!!!”

My Mom's new iMac


I told the young man at the Apple Store who I was buying it for and he was so envious! He said his grandmother wouldn’t even consider a computer! I bet his grandmother was a lot younger than my mom!

Too bad they can’t use Mom in Apple ads, She’d be a great poster girl!

She and her cat have a lot of CURIOSITY! Yesterday, as I was unpacking the box and preparing Mom’s desk, her cat kept staring at me — as if demanding an explanation. When I finally stopped and talked to her — telling her what was going on — she stopped staring at me and began to explore the empty box.

Am I anthropomorphizing, God? I think, not!

I — like my mother — have read a lot of science fiction. There is far more going on in this Universe than we can imagine. I love it, God! There is so much to learn, to see, and to ponder! Thank YOU! And please help me do the HARD WORK of learning!
