This made me laugh so much - but the message is very true!! Well done Marilyn.

The computer swallowed Grandma,
Yes, honestly it's true!
She pressed control and enter
And disappeared from view.
It devoured her completely,
The thought just made me squirm,
She must have caught a virus
Or been eaten by a worm.
I've searched through the recycle bin
And files of every kind,
I've even used the Internet,
But nothing did I find.
In desperation, I asked Mr Google
My searches to refine
The reply from him was negative,
Not a thing was found online.
So, if inside your inbox
My Grandma you should see
Please copy scan and paste her
And send her back to me.

This is a tribute to all the Grandpas and Grandmas Nannas and Pops who have been fearless and learned to use the computer. They are the greatest. We do not stop playing because we grow old, we grow old because we stop playing. Never be the first to get old.

I sent this to my eldest grandson when someone else posted it on Gransnet last year. He thought it was very funny. I have a feeling that someone else posted it again recently, but I can't be certain. It's clearly very popular with grannies. grin
