Blogging from the beach in Oregon

A year and a half ago I tried to blog from the beach in Oahu using just my Treo and failed pitifully. Tonight I’m sitting in my lawn chair on the beach in Waldport, Oregon waiting for Independence Day fireworks to start. Not as spectacular a beach, to be sure, but my iPhone holds more technical promise than my Treo ever did so I’m drawn to make the attempt.

My wife just accosted me and has dictated the following message: “My husband is an addict who can’t put down his pathetic electronic toys even though we’re sitting on the coast in Oregon to watch fireworks over the ocean, for Pete’s sake!”

My brother-in-law wants me to add the phrase, “with his very cool brother-in-law” but I won’t stand for that kind of irresponsible reporting.

It’s time to try and post this. It’s getting colder and I think it’s not just the weather.

  1. Chuck, that really brought a smile to my face, and just because the iPhone could do what a Treo couldn’t your style is impeccable, and your reporting it gritty and honest. Thanks for bringing us the real-life human aspects of blogging. πŸ™‚

    Oh, and I hope the fireworks were spectacular.

  2. Wow, it’s early in the morning, and my grammar is NOT impeccable. I meant “not just because” and “couldn’t. Your style”. Looks like I need a shower to wake me up…
