It All Began with an iPhone…

I mentioned in a recent post that I would like to get an iPad. A reader sent me a funny e-mail and I knew I wanted to share a version of it as a blog post. I don't know who wrote it, and so the I's and my's are not referring to me. Anyway, here it is, with a little family news at the end of the post.

It all began with an iPhone….

March was when my son celebrated his 15th birthday and I got him an iPhone. He just loved it. Who wouldn't?

I celebrated my birthday in July and my wife made me very happy when she bought me an iPad.

My daughter's birthday was in August, so I got her an iPod Touch.

And so naturally in September for my wife's birthday I bought her an iRon.

I reminded my wife how well the iRon can be integrated into the home network with the iWash, iCook and iClean. It was about then that the fight started….

Which led me to the iHospital…. iHurt!


This e-mail reminded me of a picture I had seen a while back. Women's libbers might not find the preceding humorous, but they might see the iRony in the following picture.

My wife, who iRonically enjoys ironing and many other domestic chores (doubters can see her blog post on ironing), retired on July 1. The next day we left for Ohio and Michigan to see family in both states. When we arrived at our daughter Megan and son-in-law Jim's house, we were surprised to see the t-shirt grandson Drew was wearing:

Megan is expecting baby #2 sometime in the early spring. This is considered a high-risk pregnancy, and she has been to the doctor several times and has already had her first ultra-sound. She has another one scheduled for the week she returns home from visiting us this week. Needless to say we were all thrilled by this news and would appreciate your prayers for a strong healthy baby and a safe delivery.

Well, that's it for this week, my kind readers. Keep sending me great stuff!

Does freedom of the press mean no-iron clothes?

    I enjoyed this, as well as other posts. Congratulations on the prospect of being grandfather once again. Praying that all goes well throughout the pregnancy….. and congratulations to your wife on her retirement.

    Congratulations on the prospects of a new grandchild. My wife and I know about nervous pregnancies. We trust God will grant you all great grace during this time.

    I burst out laughing when I saw the iRon. I can’t even remember when the last time that I ironed was. It was never one of my favorite things to do.

    Cute picture of Drew! I asked the Lord to help Megan and the baby to not have any problems and that the baby will arrive safe, sound, and healthy.

    Hi Rob and Becka!

    Enjoyed the I-phone and I-ron story! 🙂 Typical Rob Loach — vintage quality! We were just laughing at some of your witticisms earlier this week! 🙂

    We ate some havla and you know who that reminded us of! haha

    We are home in the States for the summer. We will stay here until the end of Sept. Would you believe that my Dad will be 100 years old on Sept. 29th?????!!! Isn’t that amazing!? He was still driving until a year ago! And we went fishing together until this summer–his eyes are getting worse. But his mind is sharp!

    We will be praying for Megan and her pregnancy. Drew is so cute. He reminds me of Megan at that age! 🙂 I remember her! Love to all, Marilou (and Jim too!)
