One more experience today's youth will never have
Bopping along to the radio in your car, and realizing the person in the car next to you is listening to the same song.

Hoping for dog productivity
I bought a powercap at Lowe's this evening, and now I'm just waiting to walk the dog and hoping he'll do something worth illuminating.

The era has now ended
Today I bought an iPhone 6s 64GB and began setting it up. So far the only thing that's really chafing my jimmies is the inability to sync Outlook data beyond contacts and calendar. Otherwise, it's going well.
If anyone has any apps they can't live without that they'd like to tell me about, go for it. As a recovering BlackBerry user, I'm not up on these things.

Closer...
My Otterbox Defender case & holster for an iPhone 6s arrived today. Presumably at some point I will get an iPhone for it.

Props to Otterbox
My personal cell phone is a Blackberry Q10 (don’t judge), which I carry in an Otterbox Defender case & holster. Yesterday, I broke one of the clips on the holster under unusual circumstances*.
I called Otterbox to see if I could buy a replacement holster, but was told they stopped making them for my phone a year ago, and don’t even have any parts left. I don’t fault them for this since the Q10 is no longer manufactured or sold by any major carrier.
Otterbox wanted to provide a warranty replacement that I hadn’t even asked for, so they asked if there were any other devices I needed a Defender & holster for. I said I was planning to get an iPhone 6s at some point, so they are sending me my color choice for that. I paid $2.99 for shipping, period.
It seems I am another step closer to getting an iPhone.

*If anyone is that interested, I was attending a graduation ceremony at the Patriot Center and stood for the national anthem** with my phone in my hand. The clip snagged on the seat’s armrest.
**Why is it impossible for anyone to just sing the anthem as arranged? I blame Whitney Houston for doing it well and inspiring thousands to do it poorly.

Follow up on Trouble
He is fine, no issues with his eye.

Dog fatherhood
I had noticed something intermittently strange about Trouble's right eye. I couldn't get a good look at it, but I assumed it was his eyelid rolling over or something. With his brain issues many things are possible. When we got back from our evening walk I noticed it again and took a close look at it. 
Somehow, he got a piece of paper in his eye socket. Once I knew that it was there‎, there was no question of leaving it there so I called the vet and took him over.
They took him in the back to try flushing it out and I settled down to wait. Less than five minutes later they brought him back out. Considering it was after 10:00 PM, I was expecting at least $100-$150. They didn't charge me anything, either because that was correct on its own or because they checked how much I've spent there in the last couple years. 
It didn't seem to bother him but it sure bothered me so I'm glad it could be resolved fairly easily.
