Okay, so my family has gotten my mother's feet wet by getting her set up with being the proud new owner of the iPad. She is going to be 72 in January... way to go mom! So proud of you, that you made the big step to try out technology!
She spent a few days with us and I went over a few things with her, one of which was email use. I think she had the concept down pretty good by the time she left for home. One of the reasons she got this iPad is because it has voice recognition (Seri) and it can do all of her typing for her by her speaking to it.
I thought I would email her a short message and a picture of my daughter Jenna in her halloween costume, so she had something to read and see when she turned on the iPad once she arrived home.
This is what I wrote to my mom (her name is Janice)....
I hated to see you go today and I wish I would of had more time to spend with you while you were up here! I thought I would send you a picture of what Jenna was for Halloween since you did not get to see it yet. Gotta run for now but wanted to let you know that I am thinking of you and love you very much!
This is what she replied with....

I just about peed my pants from laughing so hard! Thanks mom for the good laugh :)
With that, I am going to leave you with a little short funny video about the iPad and the older generation...
