email addres for the over 60s

Awwwwwwwwwwww and another awwwwwwwwwww.

My Mum and Dad, bless them, have bought their first computer! Awwww. My Dad is 70 and my Mum is 63 and they have never ever had a puter in their life! They bought an HP laptop like the one I got coz my Dad likes mine! I likes mine too.

Anyway, my Dad phoned me tonight to tell me that they are setting up their new puter and they are filling in the registration thingy that HP puts on all its new puters! I said aww dont bother with that specially as you dont have internet connected yet. I said wait til you have internet which they get fixed up next week. Anyway, my Dad says well we have filled in most of it and put our email in and everything. So I said, "Er, Dad you dont have email yet, you aint got internet yet!" - LOL this is so so funny - I just had to share it with ya LOL  awwwwwwwww - Well my Dad then says "yeah we have - we made one!" - "What is it then I says" - "It's Johnandbarb@home.com" my Dad says. Awwwww, awww how sweet!! How funny. I said noooooooooooooo Dad you cant just choose one! I said you have to wait til your internet provider gives you one. So my Dad said "Oh, think we will stop filling out this form then!" Awwwwww! I told my kids and they had hysterics - I just so love that email address!
