Yes, I already have a Fitbit Versa 2. My wife is wearing it, right now.
I had to smile. You have to smile.

Yes, popes have a storied history of being very perturbed by all things new and modern.

They made it easy. All you had to do to get to the update was to press a BIG RED button. Did so. Was slightly disappointed that the ABOVE instructions weren’t there!

I had skipped v1.2. I had never done a firmware update on a Canon. Knew I would have to bit the bullet some day. So, decided to give it a try.

I will try and make this a daily event. Sharing the local foliage with you. Not difficult — really. I can just step outside and snap a few pictures. 50% of these were within 100 yards of my front door!
