Good Evening

The photo sums it up. This morning it begun with a few claps of thunder the rains came falling down. Yesterday Mr. Swiss got his new iPhone. He now has a 13 version the same as mine. When I got mine the guy in the store, Elvis, transferred all the data and organised everything. He was finished in half an hour and it has been functioning perfectly since. However, when someone gets the same phone and has never registered a password, and changes them once a week because the one he he has no longer is that word that he thought it was, things get complicated: especially if that person forgets to take the old phone with him when getting the new one.

Who? My Mr. Swiss of course. And so he has a new phone and cannot use it. However, Mrs. Angloswiss to the rescue and so this morning (in the rain on a scooter) she went to the golden oldie refuge, collected both phones and went to the telephone shop in town with them. Now Joe came to my rescue. Actually it was Joel, the Portuguese guy in the store, that knew the answers and said I should come back in the afternoon to pick up the new phone. He even gave me his private number, but he called me first to say the telephone was now in working order. It had now stopped raining, and we had wonderful sunshine. I arrived at the store, picked up the telephone which was a perfect job done by Joe, and brought it to Mr. Swiss in his golden oldie home. I explained the details and told him, no actually threatened him, not to change any passwords or change anything on the phone. You never know what ideas he can get.

When I left him he was happy with his phone discovering all the new gimmicks. I even set up Whatsapp for him which is our main message system. He wrote me a wonderful message afterwards full of thanks for the effort I invested, although I wanted to complete the job today and not have it hanging around my head for the next week. I now have a new friend at the store, Joe. They are all young guys. I still have fond memories of Elvis, I think he was Spanish.

And that was my news of the day. I just hope that Mr. Swiss does not decide to perform any experiments on the new phone.

  1. This was kind of funny to read because when my husband and I got new phones, we got the exact same so we would help each other out with them. He’s always been the savvy one, but it has come to me to tell him how the different bells and whistles work. He thinks I’m a genius. Who am I to argue? 🙄

  2. Goodness, that sky looks ominous.
    After that warmth yesterday, it was significantly cooler today, but also humid and cloudy! I even felt a few raindrops today! There was an isolated but severe thunderstorm to the south, and lightning killed someone and here two dogs in Pico Rivera further south past Los Angeles! This sort of weather is very rare here, and even more rare to be over so much of California at the same time. Unfortunately, it starts fires. The last lighting that I can remember started the CZU Fire, which burned so much of this region.

  3. Good morning .,.. great photos. So much drama and adventure in the password problem. I bought a little spiral bound notebook a few years ago .. maybe two or three … to keep track of all the passwords. I labelled each page A ..B .. c … all the way through Z. I thought “oh I will never fill this up” .. and of course .. it is full … amazing …. we keep it with us even when we travel because you never know when Google or whatever will suddenly decide for a “surprise” verification. Take care and have a great day. SLP …

    • I keep a record of my passwords on a memory stick so they are not registered on the computer for safety. They are also printed in a file I have made for them. I have four large pages of them. I also collect Mr.Swiss passwords
