I Think My Dad Would Have Loved It...

Tonight I was watching various things on both the computer and TV and a thought came over me. I think my dad would have loved to see 2012.

My dad was kind of a techno-nerd even back in the 1960's and 1970's. He was an engineer and his degree from Utah State (Go Aggies!!) was in tool engineering. I've been told the closest thing to that degree today is a mechanical engineering degree.

Even though I didn't have the chance to know my father very well, I do remember some of the stories. My father liked to build things. He even built our family television. Tonight I watched on my computer a college football game (Go Aggies!!) and the convention--both events streamed live. In addition, on our TV was another football game (Go Utes!!) on cable.

I wonder what my dad would have thought about having so much information at your fingertips. I've often thought of that. I think he would be amazed. Of course, with so many different things happening at once, not one thing had my full attention. I was sort of all over the place. On second thought, maybe my dad wouldn't like everything about 2012...

  1. I agree. We often think about my late sister-in-law and grandmother- in-law and the phones. They both loved talking on the phone. Judy would have been texting and tweeting all the time! Makes you wonder what we will be missing out on when we move on.
