    Time for a new monitor.

    There’s wite-out on the monitor.

    Opal, ever hear of a handwritten list? The ability to use pencil and paper is our last defense against The Machine!

    I’m disappointed in you, Mr. Crane. You’ve always written Opal as a much more savvy person than this. (BTW, I’m 71 and know how to get around an Excel spreadsheet pretty well) Cheap shot.

    Perhaps not. Not everyone is skilled at the computer and there are those who don’t want any part of the technological advancements. I have an uncle like that.

    Tis a shame that spread sheets get used for everything but there 1st purpose, number crunching.

    I agree with @mkdonly1, Crane, that was an easy, cheap shot at older folks. Even Earl would be upset with that. Shame on you for doing that in the best strip since “Pogo.”

    My Mom was about 65 when we tried to teach her to use the computer. I was on the phone with her several times a day telling her how to do simple things. Not everyone can learn new things.

    “My Mom is 89 and uses the computer, although I have to help out on occasion…she does NOT know how to cut and paste but what she doesn’t know won’t hurt her”
    Teach her! It’s idiotically easy and a lot of fun.
    I know — I’m going on 84 and I can vouch for it — it gets addictive. In fact I cut and pasted your comment into my comment.

    My mother, who’d been a secretary and clerical worker until her retirement at 83, learned to use the computer at 81. She was thrilled at the innovations such as spell check and formatting, cut & paste etc. She chided us for not encouraging her to learn sooner !
    The old typewriter went into the closet and we were forced to purchase a computer for her. She loved it ! It almost replaced the telephone as her stay-in-touch tool in her role as the matriarch of the family.
