Smart (alec) Phones

As mentioned previously, I've been tripping around the province with hubby for the past 3 months, acting as photographer on his project. (I took well over 8,000 pictures!) We've made a lot of friends along the way, including this friendly, welcoming bunch:
We were like ships passing in the night with the rest of the family, so we kept in touch mostly via text. I've come to appreciate that the auto-correct function on a Smart phone is a bit of a curse...One day I texted eldest son about leftovers, typing: "there is a chicken breast in the fridge."  He responded immediately with, "Lol!  I sure hope not!!" Puzzled, I scrolled down to see the auto-correct had changed my words to, "there is a chicken breast-feeding in the fridge."
We're still laughing!! :)


  1. Haha!!!The girls look very satisfied with their feeding greenery, and lots of photos, hope you had a great time out there.

  2. Have to watch out for those chooks in the fridge, you know......they get up to all sorts of shenanigans when you aren't watching! That's a happy herd of cattle, lots of good steaks, is the barbecue at your house or mine?

  3. I'm glad you are making friends on your journeys.
    I have a love/hate relationship with auto-correct.

  4. Too funny! I've learned to read before I hit enter because of the silliness of auto correct. Fun, though, that it gives us something to laugh about! XO

  5. Thanks for sharing this! It made me laugh out loud, and my one yr. grandbaby came over to see why Nana was laughing so loud. Then I showed her your cows, and she is saying "moo" now. So you made both of us happy. Have a great week!

  6. Thanks for the laugh and I feel your pain!! LOL

  7. haha.. I've had that happen too. different words.... Actually I'm getting pretty good at reading through auto-correct messages..
