MadSnapper - the Real ME

collage created in PicMonkey
My header was created in Photo Shop using Microsoft Clipart from Word.

In the next coming weeks I will share MadSnapper Trivia a little at a time which will let you know the REAL Me....

Poor E-Me has no SMART phone to to take a Selfie, I had to use my trusty Nikon Coolpix. My first Photo Of ME in 2014

I am probably one of a very small majority who does not own a smart phone, I have a flip phone that I keep minutes on and it rides in the car for emergency use only. I don’t even know the phone number unless I look in the phone

But I truly am E- ME....I love all techie things, software and programs but I am  also NOT what you would call a Normal Female. (more on that in a future post)

Everything for me is E from Emails and Ecards to E -bills, E insurances


created in My Memories Suite

 It is rare for me to pay cash, but I never put my charge card or debit card in a window at a drive through, I never let the cards out of my sight, and that includes walking inside CVS to pick up prescriptions..  

I do get cash with my debit card when I shop for groceries, and I use that at drive through. OR walk inside... think exercise.
.

Are you E? or cash? check? credit card? or some of all?

I am about the same way...and I DON'T carry a purse anymore after I was nearly mugged at a gas station while pumping gas. From then on it was card all the way. Just in my phone carrier. Phone, ID, and debit.

As for not using a smartphone/cellphone...this sounds just like my sister. She's the same way...only on trips does she make use of her trac phone.

Happy Monday to you. And stay warm!

Sandra, nice meeting the E-you. I have an iPod that was last year's birthday gift from Grenville and have just started using it for "selfies" the main reason being that I can a better photo of myself or us than when I hand my simple digital point & shoot camera to anyone and ask them to take a closeup head shot. Instead, I get a fuzzy photo with lots of background space.
And, you are not alone with an older phone. Ours are also old dumb flip phones. We will replace them when our current contract expires. But no extended plans for us...just the basics and a senior rate too cause my 65th bday is before the contract expires...yeah!
We pay most bills online or through our local bank's online bill pay. I usually do not carry more than $15 in my wallet at any given time, sometimes less as thrift store bargains are what I look for when shopping.
Looking forward to learning and sharing more in 2014 as well.

Ps...I never even heard of a 'selfie' until about a week ago. Do I live under a rock or what? LOL

MS!!! Bravo on your selfie who needs a smart phone when they have a smart creative brain.
Mom does not have a smart phone either still has a flip phone that is only on when she is not at home.
Great post as always
Hugs madi and Mom

Hello, hello.

I do not have a smart phone. Too much to learn.

You did well.

I only know how to take picture on my Skype Cam.

I have done what you have done.

I find it tricky.

it never works out for me.

Hit and miss with me.

Oh I love your header .

Excellent!

I will be back.

I am so late in getting into.

My site.

I have two other sites as well for many years I had that.

The Golden Girls.

That is me.

Love your "Selfies" Sandra.
I'm really not into all the techie things but do love being able to stay in touch with people through FB and blogs.
I pay a few bills on line but trying to still keep control of my credit cards by being hands on...
Looking forward to learning more about you and your E life!

SweetMarie said...

You're silly and you look warm and fantastic!
I pay all bills online, use my debit card for everything except drive thrus. :)
There's a lot I need to learn on my smart phone and my pc...my son helps a lot. :)

Michaele said...

I always love your selfies. I also look forward to hearings more about you.

Mersad said...

Great selfies Sandra! And in regards to your question, i follow the same routine as you. Never let the card out of sight! :)

I'm still back in the Dark Ages. I like cash. I'm frugal - okay, maybe cheap - and think that using cash makes me stay within my budget. ;)

Rose said...

I am going to enjoy getting to know you better...as for cash, debit or credit...I use some of all.

Betsy Adams said...

WELL---I think I know you well enough to have known most of this about the REAL you... Love the selfie photos.. You are a very pretty lady!!!! It's wonderful to have you as a good friend!

You know most everything about me too... So far, we don't have a smart phone either --but plan to get one this spring (when our contract runs out on the one we have now). Unlike you though, we use our cell all of the time and only have a home phone for those pesky calls and businesses, etc. The cell is our personal phone and anyone trying to catch up with us had better call the cell. We use it for texting --but not for internet use or photos...

I like all things Mac --but am not into fancy photography like you. I love it but don't put my energy in that area. George, on the other hand, wants to take the perfect photo in raw --and works very hard at the perfect shot.

My passion lies in my Family History... Doing that detail work and finding new info about ancestors brings me joy--like PicMonkey brings you.

We never use a debit card. Most companies don't 'guarantee' debit cards if your number gets stolen... BUT--we do use credit cards --but pay them off EVERY month (so as not to have interest)....

Well--nuff said for today. This is getting LONG... ha ha
Hugs,
Betsy

Flip phone here but I am going to get a smart phone as I think that will be all there is in the future. I want to master it before I'm too dumb to--well, use a smart phone. I do everything you do except use a debit card. I can't wait for your next installment!

Best,
Bonnie

Still a landline phone here. The only "E" is my email.
Enjoyed learning more about you...great selfies.

Gail said...

I don't have a cell phone so that makes me almost a dinosaur.

SquirrelQueen said...

Love your selfie!

You know I'm an E person too. I do have a smart phone and I even text (which hubby thinks is weird). When making in store purchases I use the debit card but only when I am the one who swipes it, no one else gets to touch it.

I love technology to the point that hubby calls me a tech junkie.

Deb said...

I love your selfies....just beautiful....I love my IPhone...I have to have a phone because of work...and with it I can email..text...pay bills...I am paged 24 hours a day for service calls...my phone is like a 3rd hand...if I didn't have it I don't know what I would do...I have a check card...used only in the credit mode...I rarely ever have cash on me...99% of all bills are paid on line...can't wait to find our more about our Madsnapper....Hubby has a flip phone...would rather not have one at all...he doesn't text or email that's what I'm for...lol

Linda said...

I LOVE it!!! I just recently got a 'grown up' phone! Louis Dean refuses!
I am looking forward to getting to know you!! I have loved your pics!
We use credit cards all the time. seldom have real $$! Although we do 'old school' banking and do not know HOW to use an ATM machine. Nor do we want to learn!

George said...

I don't own a smartphone either. I haven't taken any selfies, but I sure like yours.

Angela said...

You did a great job taking a selfie with a real camera! It looks better than the cell phone pictures any old day! I don't have a smart phone either. I have a pay as you go phone that I only use for emergencies. I had to call one doctors office because they would leave messages for me on that phone because they had it under the number to call because most people use their cell phones and most people work so they can reach them that way. I don't work and my cell phone don't work at my house so I don't need it. You can't find a payphone out there anymore which is why I have the cheap pay as you go phone. I don't even spend $100 on it for an entire year when most people spend that much or more a month on their phones. I'm too cheap! lol

Betty Manousos said...

i always love your selfies, sandra and adore your smile.

i don't own a smartphone either, but i think it's time to get one.
i have taken a few selfies with my compact canon camera. not as good as yours though.

Eva Ason said...

Great pictures and cool camera looks almost like mine :)
I think I am a cash person, since my account were emptied I am a bit careful.

magscorner said...

Very nice "selfie" snaps of a pretty you! I have not done any selfies don't want to break my new camera. lol No credit cards here. Still a check and fliptop cell phone user. Rarely use a phone at all so see no need to have a smart phone. We still have a landline that is not used much either. Looking forward to hearing more about you. Clever header and you did great on it. Wish I knew how to use Photoshop that well. Hugs

Linda@arichtapestry said...

Hello, Sandra! Glad to catch up with you. I would say that we're becoming more paperless in our dealings with the world. However, since hubby isn't at all techie I'm the one who's learning how to cope with it all. Looking forward to more of your techie info in 2014!

Tammy@Simple Southern Happiness said...

looking good!
I too do not own a smart phone, I have a prepaid phone that hubby will add minutes to and I keep it in the car should I need it.
