A GPS for my birthday!

In honor of my birthday today....a rare post that has nothing much to do with the OUTLANDER books.

I have a notoriously poor sense of direction, and so I have been wanting to get a GPS for a long, long time. My parents bought me one for my birthday this year. Here's what it looks like:



It's a Garmin nuvi 765T, and I am having a lot of fun learning how to use it today. So far, so good. Went to get my driver's license renewed this morning, at a place that's a little complicated to get to. The GPS got me there and back with no problems at all. (And I discovered that it's much easier to read street signs from the little GPS screen on the dashboard than by looking out the window in the pouring rain. <g>)

Thanks to everyone for the birthday wishes! Diana asked for my mailing address this morning because she wants to send me a "wee giftie". I wonder what that could be? Possibly something she picked up during her recent travels? Whatever it is, it's really sweet of her to send me a present.
