Ok, I know some of you can’t make it to the Party in May.  I think we are trying to figure out a Skype/factime thing.  I know nothing about it but am in charge of those who want to do it to give us your phone number or whatever it it.  Please do not post public if you do not want to but you can PM me privately on here. 

Thanks

WOOF!!! WOOF!!! YAY MICHELLE!!! GRRRRREAT IDEA!!! You da’ bomb 🙂 🙂

It goes without saying that I know minus zero about this stuff. But maybe we could schedule a time for Saturday AND Sunday at the Park to make sure everyone is in on this, including the day trippers who are coming either day? Make sense??

I would love to be in on a Facetime visit.

Kathi

Murphy is a five year old Lab/Chessie cross. He was hit by a car on 10/29/12 and became a Tripawd on 11/24/12. On 2/5/13, he had a total hip replacement on his remaining back leg. He has absolutely no idea that he has only three legs!

UPDATE: Murphy lived his life to the fullest, right up until an aggressive bone lesion took him across the Rainbow Bridge on April 9, 2015 and he gained his membership in the April Angels. Run free, my love. You deserve it!

KATHI!!! I was afraid of this! It does NOT mean you are exempt from still checking airfares and making to the pawty!!! No way!! Nope! Not exempt!! 🙂 🙂

And that applies to some others…And you know who you are!!!

Besides, we may not even be able to get a connection out there…..or any of the various places everyone is staying 🙂 🙂 🙂

So you HAVE to keep trying!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂

Ok, just throwing that out there but how about Facebook live? That way it would stay in the digital world for us to look at later? 

Just an idea 💡 I guess it would also only work if everybody agreed to it. 

Thoughts? 😊

That is a great idea and it could be posted on the Tripawds FB account too.  All for it.  I know some may not have FB but we will still do the Facetime or skype whatever it maybe.  I am leaving that up to our techie peoples…

Oh that’s a great idea too! I’ve never done a FB live video but that would attract people to the Tripawds FB page too.

Our story: Broke rear leg in June 2013 - non-conclusive results for cancer so leg was plated and pinned. Enlarged spleen in September 2013 and had it removed and was diagnosed with Hemangiosarcoma and started chemotherapy. Became a Tripawd January 8th, 2014 and definitive Hemangiosarcoma diagnosis. Three major surgeries in 7 months and Shelby took them all like a champ only to lose her battle to cancer in her brain. We had 8 amazing extra months together and no regrets. #shelbystrong #loveofmylife

Also, I think Karma (and others) are bringing some sort of “booster” that allows for wifi access. I know I was going to look into getting one for my phone or ipad since I can’t not be “connected” for that many days! 🙂 I do like to “upload” in “real time” on FB and Instagram! smiley

Looks like I’ll FINALLY have to join facebooger..UGH! But this is such a great compelling reason I HAVE to!

So, that means that the “live” interaction stuff will be on fb furever and we can go and look at it anytime sorta like a YouTube video???? WOW! That would be so great!!

Maybe Karen could do fhat for the Calif. Pawty?

And for all upcoming pawties!!! 🙂

Will it take up gigabytes like YouTube???

Never mind my questions….I’ll just add them to my box of computer questions for Michelle 🙂 🙂 🙂

I looooove facebooger now!!! 🙂

But this is such a great compelling reason I HAVE to!  I don’t know if you would need to join FB to see this live feed since their page is a public page and anyone can see it, I think. But yes, you can join FB and join the rest of us in a total waste of time! 

So, that means that the “live” interaction stuff will be on fb furever and we can go and look at it anytime sorta like a YouTube video???? WOW! That would be so great!! It does live there for forever but you would have to scroll down to see it again, I think. I’ve never used FB live before. 

Maybe Karen could do fhat for the Calif. Pawty? Indeed she could…. or I could but it would be on FB not Tripawds. But I can’t go to the May party. 

And for all upcoming pawties!!! 🙂

Will it take up gigabytes like YouTube??? That’s beyond my pay grade of knowledge! 

Never mind my questions….I’ll just add them to my box of computer questions for Michelle 🙂 🙂 🙂

I looooove facebooger now!!! 🙂  big-grinbig-grinbig-grinbig-grinbig-grin welcome to the dark side ….

Ok I’m just going to throw this out there….a Facebook Live video event cannot be embedded into any other website. This means if we ever want to share it with people who are not on Facebooger, all we can share is a link.

If the live feed is done via Google Hangout, it records as a YouTube video and can be more widely shared, put into blog posts, etc.

Just a thought.

And yes, Tavlets and non-Facebooger Lives DO matter 🙂

Ahh soo Grasshopper. Yes, we did discuss it. I had to switch from PLAIN text (which is what I use now) to the other one TINY MICE RICH TEXT (?)’to do all the fancy stuff I love! HOWEVER, apparently it’s not compatible with Android Samsung tavlets.

I would type a reply using all the fancy stuff….And it looked pretty good on MY screen UNTIL I hit reply! Then it came out all different! And everything acted real whacky …..things like my keyboard would just start typing….yeah….really!

Ohhhh boy! This SKYPE stuff is going to be fun! 🙂 🙂 🙂 Kind of a “tavlet revenge”! 🙂 I’m gonna put my tavlet on my new BFF SKYPEway-cool and then everyone can see firsthand all the “trauma” I go through with this tavlet just to typo a simple reply! clapclap
