More Shopping and Phone Problem

October 1st, 2017 at 01:37 pm

Took C to GS1's baseball game, then afterwards went to the gym and then to Food4Less. I spent $13 for broccoli, peppers, tortillas, apple, raspberries and dinner rolls.

Today I'll go to Jewel to get my freebie and to buy popcorn.

On Tuesday I'll go to Walgreens for AARP discount day (20%) and get the toiletries I need. I think that will conclude my shopping for a while.

Variables are now 20%.

I continue to have problems getting calls on my phone. I don't know why a dead space has developed after years of adequate service, but I can't receive or make calls from my living room, which is where I am most of the time. It's not my service provider, either, because others with different providers have the same problem in my living room. So something external has changed -- some cell tower has been moved, or something like that.

I have decided to get a tablet, so I can use it for the games I like when I'm lounging in the living room, and I can leave my cell phone in the areas of the condo where service works. I think it's the cheapest solution. If I want to yack on the phone (which I mostly don't, I'm not a phone talker) I can do it in relative comfort in my bedroom.

My son said he thought I could get a tablet for about $50. Does that jive with you guys? I know nothing about tablets.

Today my grandson has another baseball game, and it is out of town. Last I heard, it was iffy if even he was going, because he's been invited to a birthday party he really wants to attend. If he plays, and if C wants to go, I will go, but otherwise I may sit it out. My knees are aching -- too much stretching yesterday? I feel like a day of relaxation is in order.

Have a great Sunday, guys!

    I love my kindle fire. There are some at $50. and some more expensive. It seems to depend on the size of the screen. It can do a lot, even more than I use it for. I am not your best techie, however, another people should weigh in.

    I think if you go refurbished you could get a good one for under $100. Maybe not iPad, but one of the other brands.

    That's crummy you still have a dead space in your place for your phone. I think your best bet would be to peruse ads to see what tablets are out there and what the prices are.

    I bought a fancier Kindle fire during their last sale and use it much more than our old cruddy tablet. I sometimes wonder witth those phone dead spaces if something has changed in a building?

    MEC, I've thought that, too, but I don't know what. It's an old building and there hasn't been any remodeling since I've been here.
