  1. Hey there – how fun! There are several things on the list that I actually still do – at least sometime. I usually carry a little bit of cash – especially if I know I’m going to something like a Farmers Market, etc. – and we do watch some things live – usually football games!

    On the other hand, I don’t use printed maps to figure out how to get to some place!

    *See you soon! Pat*

    1. I agree! Several of these I still do, too! Carl’s mom cuts lots of articles from the newspaper – she’s always sending them to us. Carl does math in his head.
      We are looking forward to seeing you in July!
