William's Blog...with a smile!


You might be old school if...

I have been old school for as long as I can remember.


I have been called that a lot as of late.


I think about it and I don't think I am totally old school.


I mean, I have electricity, indoor plumbing and even a TV with rabbit ears.


Gee Whiz, how much more do I need?


But, the illustration below shows that I have been progressive for years.


I had an I-Pad years ago.

Must admit, I'm a bit old school myself and proud of it too William!

Good morning William,

And the old etch a sketch was one for the ages as well.

Make yourself an astonishing day.

William, This is a funny post. I do consider myself to be old school.

Gosh I used to love playing with that original iPad. I would entertain myself for hours with it. Much unlike today's iPad.

Magic Slates were indeed the original iPads!  What great memories!

Hey, William! I had one of those I-pads! It was fun and I loved it! I no longer apologize for being "old school." But I do love my computer.

Bill, good point and don't forget about the ever popular and high tech gadget for its time...the Etch A Sketch!

Oh, William! I don't recall if mine had the Jetsons on it, but I surely had one. And Nick T Pappas - I owned an Etch A Sketch, too, until it melted in the car one hot summer day.

My I-pad wasn't the Jetsons.  It may have been Roy Rogers or Superman.  I don't remember.  The Jetsons came later.  Oops, I think I said too much.

That's one of those things I have no clue what they're called but had a ton of growing up. Guess that means old school is still in session William.

I am pretty old school as well, and yes I had one of those cool IPads too.
