I can see! I can SEE!!!

I've had this computer for a few years now, and have used it a lot.  The letters on the keyboard were getting so worn I could hardly read them anymore.

So I got a set of those large-print keyboard stickers which are probably designed for older folks who are going blind.

All I can say is, WOW!  What a difference!  I can see what I'm doing!
I can find the right key without having to squint!
Now I can waste even more precious minutes of my life online!

Please tell me this doesn't mean I'm old.
Even if I do wear bifocals, and ate bran cereal for breakfast.

There is no such thing as old. There is young, until you are 80. After that, you are venerable.

"It's the truth," said the Bear.

Rob-bear: So, wait... 79 is young? Really?

Janna said...

Rob-bear (again): I'm 42. So does that make me slightly half-venerable?

Rob-bear said...

Surprise! Surprise!

Basically, you are as old or young as you think and feel you are. You can be a very old 42, or you can be a very young 66 (like me). Except I am slowing down a bit, so maybe not quite as young as I was.

Anyhow, if you want to be half-venerable, or half-vulnerable — it's whatever works for you. Just don't sell yourself short!

And "May you stay forever young!"

You can trust me. We Bears know about these things.

Rob-bear: You remind me a lot of another "Bear" blogger I used to visit. He was from Australia. I haven't heard from him in a long time and always wondered what happened.

Maybe the poor chap in Oz found life un-Bearable. Though I hope not.

Perhaps he is on extended hibernation. Oz is in the Southern Hemisphere; it's winter down there (such as winter is in the south half of the globe). Hibernation would be my first guess.
