Using Garmin Nuvi 750.
Yesterday afternoon my new Garmin Nuvi 750 GPS arrived! Taking the Nuvi 750 out into son David's backyard, it quickly found its location. Using the Nuvi 750 is pretty intuitive.

The touch-screen offers a "qwerty" keyboard for destination input. I typed in Uncle Seymour and Aunt Shirley's address in Santa Barbara [I'm visiting them next week]. The Nuvi quickly found their home and began to direct me with a lady's voice.

This morning I've installed the Nuvi into son David's car using the convenient suction-cup mount and the power cord adapter. The Nuvi 750 had no problem working even though it is located on the control panel of the car, well below the windows.

Driving to WalMart with Nuvi running.
The Nuvi easily located the WalMart in Martinez, California. The Nuvi 750 allows voice directions to be transmitted to a car radio. There was only one error made during this trip. Very close to the WalMart, Nuvi instructed a right instead of a left turn.

So far, Nuvi is doing great!

The Bucket List
This evening I watched "The Bucket List", a movie starring Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman. They play guys with terminal cancer who decide to do all the things that they wished they had done before they "kick the bucket." They prepare what they call the bucket list of those things.

I did somewhat the same thing when I had cancer. That's how I got to be traveling around in MsTioga living off the fat of the land!

Are there still things left on my bucket list? Yes! And I pray to God that I'll get to do them!
