I Phone for me from my daughter

My daughter gave me an I Phone and I love it now. I say now because during its first few days with me, there seemed to be nothing I could  accomplish with it. My telco sms' were all mis-spelled. I could not answer a Viber call not even  send a free sms.. But my children all told me to give myself a little time. I was such in a hurry to be an 'expert user' :-)

Thank you my darling! I keep forgetting taking our pics whenever she visits. Excitement I am sure on my part!


Pic will follow:-)
