Then I dropped it in some water. Long story... boring beyond words. Suffice it to say, damage done! So last August I got a new Smart Phone. A really low-level Smart Phone, but still, LOTS MORE stuff I don't use. Do I really go enough places to need GPS??
So while my camera was lost, I took phone pics. Fun, but frustrating. How to get the blasted things from the phone to somewhere usable, like my computer???
Enter eldest child, my son the techno-wizard. Last weekend he enabled my email on the phone, a task I had been heretofore unable to accomplish. He said "now you can email the pics anywhere". He even showed me that I could upload the pics to Facebook, which he did, adding a rather self-agrandizing message for a laugh. What a guy!
But later when I tried to email those pics to my computer, guess what? NOTHING!! It took me a whole day of stewing to finally figure it out. My email is smart enough to know it's trying to send a message to ITSELF and it will not waste the time! Ha!
So today I emailed my pictures to my work address, and now I can retrieve them from my home SENT mail, plus I have a copy at work if I want one.
Here are some of the pictures from my phone:
