It was Norma's birthday the other day. We never make a big deal of these things, sometimes have dinner out or something. This time, I mentioned an ad in the paper for a sale on Garmin Nuvi 265WT's. They have the wider screen and are a little easier to read. The maps in the older Nuvi 255 are a little dated and the new one says, "turn left in 200 feet on Elm street", instead of "turn left in 200 feet". This makes navigation a little easier.
Anyway, she said she wanted one for her birthday! Boy, does that ever let me off the hook. It arrived yesterday and today I registered it and was told I qualified for a map update. It has been doing that for the last hour.
One of my old workmates is having a small retirement party in the pub down the street that we are going to. I have been retired for 10 1/2 years so there are not many left there who I worked with. It will be fun seeing everyone. Not so much fun buying $8 mugs of beer.
