I had to reblog this blog post from Terry at http://terry1954.wordpress.com/2012/06/25/thank-goodness-i-know-how/ …It is so funny! Thank you Terry, for giving us this lighthearted look at the internet and those of us that are older and were not raised with it.
The computer swallowed grandma.
Yes, honestly it’s true!
she pressed ‘control and ‘enter’
And disappeared from view.
It devoured her completely,
The thought just makes me squirm.. She
must have caught a virus
Or been eaten by a worm.
I’ve searched through the recycle bin
And files of every kind;
I’ve even used the Internet,
But nothing did I find.
In desperation, I asked Google
My searches to refine.
The reply from them was negative,
Not a thing was found ‘online.’
So, if inside your ‘Inbox,’
My Grandma you should see,
Please ‘Copy, Scan’ and ‘Paste’ her
And send her back to me.
This is a tribute to all the Grandmas and Grandpas who have been fearless and learned to use the Computer……….
