I've acquired a 10" tablet due to a mix up in online ordering at the store on Black Friday. I ordered 1 for the Queen as a Christmas present. When checking my online banking i noticed that I had been charged twice. After calling the stores customer support They agreed that I had only purchased 1 and would send a shipping label to return the unordered one if 2 showed up in the mail and credit my card for the unordered tablet. After seeing the Queen's new toy I have decided to keep them both. Talk about impulse buying. I can load the tablet with movies and games to keep me entertained on my next hospital stay if I have one.

Have fun with the new toy, but be careful; those things have cameras on them, and we wouldn't want you getting into trouble taking pictures of nurses if you go to the hospital!

Good morning Tony:
Good call!
We looked at the 10" Tablets in Las Vegas but decided on the Samsung Galaxy 5 mainly because it will fit in my pocket. I use the clock, calculator, GPS, camera, and maps functions anywhere and internet and email when I can connect to wifi.
How these all these functions can fit in a wallet sized instrument is way beyond me and there are a bunch of other capabilities I do not use. Music and movies:
I get all the music videos I need from stuff that folks here on WU post.
My next hospital stay will be also my first but it may not be too far away. I had not thought of that use. Hope they have wifi.

Good morning Tony. I see you received a light dusting of snow again. Sure looks cold. Temps here are still hovering around the low 40s but I expect our colder weather will hit by Monday. Sure have seen enough rain to last for a while. Still overcast and wet today.

Sounds like it was meant to be when your order got mixed up. Another "toy" for the horde...LOL Enjoy your early Christmas present.

Have a great day. First again....
