I talked to Gulley today and she told me that my post about Nena has the whole town buzzing with excitement. Well, maybe not the whole town, but you know…their family and friends which is pretty close to being the whole town. Apparently her mom is there visiting right now and she told Nena and the family that I wrote about Nena on “the computer”.
Nena said “you mean to tell me she wrote about me on her computer? Oh, my goodness what did she say? A blog? I never heard of such. A blog!” Next thing you know she’s on the phone with her friends telling them that I wrote about her on “my computer” and people “we don’t even know” read what I write. Yes they do, and all eight of them now know about Nena.
So Nena wanted to read what I wrote and since she doesn’t have a computer, they called Mary Jo. Now Mary Jo is the computer savvy one of the bunch seeing as how she’s the only one who owns a computer, so they were going to see if “Mary Jo cain’t figure out how to print something off the computer.”
Gulley hasn’t gotten a report back on whether or not they were able to “print something off the computer” yet, but I promise you that I will be getting a thank you note from Nena in the next few days.
In other Nena news, apparently the Bryan news has this special contest at noon everyday where they’ll call someone who sent in a card and they win a gift certificate to CJ’s Barbecue. Grandaddy has sent in multiple cards and if you call the house between 12-1:00p.m. and you’re not the news…he’ll just hang up on you. This has caused Nena an immeasurable amount of grief already and now that she’s got big news to share about her computer fame…she may be spelling a few cuss words to Grandaddy.
I’m editing this to add that I just got off the phone with Gulley to tell her about Boomama linking to Nena’s post and I got the update. Apparently, Mary Jo couldn’t get “the blog to print off the computer” so Nena’s friend Dorothy Kay came and picked them all up and drove them to her house to read it off of her computer. Nena was indeed tickled and they decided they were all having so much fun that they loaded back up in the car and went to see The Devil Wears Prada.
