In my weekly post, “Edo Kiriko bamboo leaf motifs mini Old pair M-8503-2BP“, I like to include a photo of something that I’ve taken from the previous week.

There was a time when I’d put my original camera around my neck and go looking for things to take pictures of. Ellen DeGeneres ED Charcoal Grey Accents Plate 6 Set 4It worked really well if I was lucky enough to find something worth snapping. Edo Neko Glass Craft Beer Cat Glass Set of 3 w Wooden Box ADERIA ISHIZUKA JapanNow, with the camera in my Smartphone, I always have the ability to take pictures in my pocket. It’s funny how many more pictures that I feel inspired to take this way. And better ones too.

Anyway, last week I was rolling up the solar blanket to the pool and noticed a spider in this huge web over my shoulder. Egan 3-Pc Breakfast Table with 2 Baskets SetI watched for a minute until I realized what she/he was doing. The spider was traversing the web picking up the things that got caught during the night before.Elo 88224 Stainless Steel Lid Profi Therm 24 cm My mind flashed back to elementary school science where we learned how a spider doesn’t get stuck in its own web.

I was pleased with the picture as I got as close as I could to get a definition of the spider and the things caught in the web.

Anyway, that’s the background for this post!

When I write my Sunday post, my routine was to grab the camera on my desk and flip through what I had taken and find one to include.

ELO Pure Edition Kitchen Induction Cookware Frying Pan with ThermoceramicaSince it’s only a task that I do once or twice a week, the inefficiencies kind of bothered me but not enough to do anything about it.

However, in my readings lately on Windows 10, I’ve been reading about the Your Phone abilities. For the most part, the writers were excited about the concept of texting from your computer keyboard. I wasn’t as excited. Ember Temperature Control Ceramic Mug Made of Stainless Steel (White)Could there be more?

Out of boredom, I installed this on my phone and activated the utility on my computer. Unlike other synchronization things I’ve used, this really was seemless and easyEgo Collection Wine Goblet Stem-Set of 6-By Lorren Home Trends. Almost too easy, it seemed. The menu revealed what was available.

And, sure enough, there were my spider pictures. EGO Honey 13 oz. Whiskey Glass Set of 6(As well as the thunderstorm clouds coming in from Boblo Island)

To work on the post, there was none of this sending the picture to myself. I just grabbed it from the Your Phone app and bam, it was in my post.

I remember Arthur C. Clarke’s quote…

Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.

I had that moment!

I just wish that I’d done it sooner.

… TV dinner tables?

David Garlick was a week ahead of me on this one with his Twitter response to last week’s post.

Maybe that’s why he was a principal and I wasn’t.Eijffinger Zircon Patterned Ornate Oriental Feature Wallpaper Purple 317013

Yes, there was the concept of the folding TV dinner table. There’s a bunch still for sale –

Emeril Professional Rimmed Serving Bowl - Linen WhiteThey’ve gone up in price! And appear to be more solid than the ones in my memory.

Currently, we don’t own a set but I do remember, as a child, of having a set that we kept behind the door going down to the basementEinhandmischer Küchenarmatur Spültischarmatur Spülen Wasserhahn MAESTRO . My wife’s parents had a set and used them as end tables down in their rec room.Emilceramica Milestone irregular listels White Polished 29,4x59 cm M294Z0P E3... I stole the idea when furnishing an apartment at university. It was affordable, to be sure, from the second hand store. $5 a set, if I recall correctly.

They weren’t very solid. They appeared to be made of tin and had a flowered pattern on them and fluted edges. Emile Henry 10 Ceramic Round Dutch Oven - Charcoal 4.2 QtThey folded up neatly for storage and the concept was to put your dinner/supper on them so that you could watch television while eating. (TV dinners optional). Einhell Grey Filter Pressure1 4 inch Male ThreadUnlike a regular table, they weren’t a permanent addition to a room – just for those special times that you ate supper while watching television.

Or so the story goes…

In both our families like David’s, the television was turned off at meal times and we ate as a family around the kitchen table.Eisch Glas Crystal Claret Wine Decanter 1.5L In our case, the dining table was used for special dining occasions when we had company but mostly as a collection point for stuff at other times.

So, why did we have TV tables? For those fancy meals with company, they served as holders for the food as we loaded up buffet style. EK Etageren Aluetagere silver (402167) NEUWe also used them to play games like checkers, Monopoly, on them. But that was about it.

These days, I can’t remember seeing them out for sale in stores so I don’t know if they’re not there or they’re such a seldom-purchased article that they’re largely hidden.

For a Sunday morning, your thoughts?

  • Do you currently own a set of TV dinner tables?
  • Did you have them in your youth?
  • Were you allowed to eat and watch television at the same time?
  • Ekena CRH09X CRH09X76 Crosshead 9 H x 76 W x 1 D, Lot of 1While the cheap tinny ones probably wouldn’t work, could you see a use for these type of table in your classroom?
  • Emile Henry Classique 26cm 9in Céramique Plat de Tarte en redGiven their price point and the portability, there has to be all kinds of functionality for these that I’m not aware of. Do you have a unique use for these things?

I could have used this when I got my Chromebook.
