    Okay, like everyone else, I wanted to jump on the iPad2 bandwagon when they first appeared...I checked the stores, hounded the sales people at the Apple Store, and eventually ordered my black 32gb wireless model. That process took a couple of months, and I was finally rewarded for my patience with a new iPad.;)

    And, I enjoyed that iPad for about six weeks.

    Now, fast forward to last week to a management meeting where my boss announced gifts to his leadership team...Yep, you guessed it. Now I'm also a proud owner of a black 64gb wireless iPad2

    When it rains, it does pour!:D:D

    Cheers,
    Steve

    Ha ha...pretty ironic. Reminds me of a popular song from a few years ago...I ended up "re gifting" the original to my wife, who'd bought it for me for Fathers' Day.

    I guess she'll just have to put a piece of black tape over the inscription she had etched on the cover...

    Cheers,
    Steve

    No kidding!

    The big winner was Jennifer. I'd offered to buy her an iPad for her August birthday, but she said no, her HP laptop was just fine.

    Now that she's got my "old" iPad2, I cannot pry her off of it!:D:D

    Cheers,
    Steve

    This is a much nicer post than the title suggests!

    Congrats to you ... and to your wife! :D

    Marilyn

    P.S. And your signature makes me laugh... :)

    That's the kind of rain everyone would love!

    Grats to your wife, who seems to be the real beneficiary here.

    Great sig, too!
