Easy enough to plug in and automatically recognizes the camera to upload the pics to folder on PC. Finally getting the hang of taking some useful pics.
I don't want a smartphone either. What have you heard about flip phones after 3G goes away at the end of 2019? I currently have a $100/year plan but my MVNO is not much on CS so I have no clue as to what the future holds.

It has saved me a lot of hassle and a lot of driving.

fordtrucksforever You mower issues will be from gas sitting too long in carb. It takes a little bit of lacquer thinner(NOT paint thinner, reducer, naptha, kerosene, etc) and some patience to clean the fuel system out. You may be able to buy a replacement carb direct from china for much cheaper than cost of just lacquer thinner. That may be a good alternative.

eyepal I just bought the air horn...with the bulb .
Along with second keyed lock, 2 water bottle/cup holders and a lawn mower repair book, the last of which I really NEED. May as well use the diy mechanical abilities I have to fix the mowers (2 riding, 1 push)..at least try anyway. Not saying I'm the sharpest crayon in the box, but I'm not stupid either .

Nothing evil, but let's just say his lawnmower investment costs suddenly grew a lot higher.

Coupled with a few judicious hints from the sweet elderly ladies on the block got the message across eventually.

You have to live with these people so it helps to avoid going crazy on each other.

Amazon sells the air horn in mini size 1.4 oz too .

IamZeke While made in jest, the suggestion has its own weird but useful merits. At the same time you might wish to exercise some restrain on those early morning trips. One of my neighbors had to learn a bit of "forced wisdom" when he thought that mowing the yard at daybreak was a good idea.

You know, that might just come in handy? Attempted robbery is fairly new this area, but I've read about senior's being on their guard recently. One lady was approached in the parking lot in broad daylight, so an air horn makes sense . She used something similar, only smaller.
I thought of getting one, but it was for squirrels and a raccoon that were residing in my attic this past winter, but they left...for now. I'm remodeling my home, did lots of hammering .

Have I forgotten anything?

Ofcourse I order ordered more items I needed, like a safety flag, ect., but I'm getting there .
Couldn't believe my luck in finding this online or anywhere for that matter, but the search led me to it and I have YOU to thank . THANK YOU .
That 4 bolt pattern is what is used on most boat seats also.

Central Scrutinizer Some of these office chairs sold at Office Depot have been recalled due to thin metals used and metal fatigue. I worked at a place where I was given such a chair and one day it just snapped off (I weigh 180 LBs) suddenly and I went onto my back pretty hard. The chair was on the recall list and there were reports of severe lacerations and hospitalizations. I would be wary about using an office chair in such an environment.

My mom is 76, she's been using FB for years, video chats with her grandkids, exchanges texts, puts together family calendars with pictures she takes. She has a compact printer for her laptop that she brings with when she comes here to visit so she can print out photos, not just paper printed pictures but on paper that is photo quality. I've often found that if people are bound and determined they can't do something, they can't. People who are bound & determined they can do something, might not be able to, but more often than not they do, either way, at least they tried.
