Photo Hunt: Add


Today's Photo Hunt theme is "add".  Mom Paula used to be a math teacher and college professor and she used all of these calculators to do more than "add."  She remembers one time traveling with the middle school chorus she used to accompany and the chorus teacher, Robbin, asked her for a calculator.  Mom Paula pulled out the graphing calculator (the TI-81) and the chorus teacher looked at it and said, "Give me something with an equals sign."  Mom Paula and Robbin are friends to this day (they traveled to the Outback Bowl together) and they still laugh about the calculator and she wanting something to just "add" with.

We don't care what the calculators do as long as Mom Paula can't add up the number of times she's given us a treat each day.

Oh yeah--we wouldn't want her keeping track of that would we?

OMC!!! Once in awhile the Human has to borrow a calculator from a kid at school and they hand her these MACHINES that the Human can't even turn on. So she has to ask the kid: Uh, could you show me how to ADD on this thing?! What on earth is a "graphing calculator" anyway?? My Human teaches ENGLISH for Cod's sake!

It looks like a wild hare day at your place. Mom worked at TI where they make calculators for 33 years and still does not own or know how to use an 81

The number of treats IS the most important thing! Good thing Mom Paula is great at math!

My human's calculator is one of those with a tape roll (she uses it to put together her tax prep), and I love playing with the paper! BTW, I'm not sure if that kitty was a silver Persian - she looked like she had too much of a pattern in some of the other shots, although it's possible they were just dark photos.

My calculator is at least 30+ years old. I bought it when I was still an office manager working in the corporate world. I still use it every single business day! I don't even want to think about breaking in a new-fangled calculator! I recently reordered ribbons for it... it took some googling to find them but they ARE still available! haha!

Have a treat-filled day, lovely gals!

The calculator my mom-person have is one she got for free from a company :)
You can never have to much treat moments !

Brulee, we love your hair do in this picture. You two are just the best. We are so glad you came to live with Mom Paula. Have a great Saturday.

Mom could tell some calculator stories too! But in her case it is usually the other way round - students who have fancy graphing calculators when they are totally not necessary. She does wish she had had a graphing calculator when she was in high school, though, to help understand some of the significance of those algebraic equations. She thinks the visual would have helped.

Have a great weekend!

Isn't it strange being asked how many treats you've had can lead to amnesia!
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

The next business trip Mom Paula takes you girls need to hide those calculators!

Have a great weekend!

Happy New Year Brulee,Truffle and Paula.
My you girls have grown into beautiful kitties. Sorry we have not visited in awhile..mommy is sick. Hope to visit more though.
Good to see you girls.

Jade, Myst and Blackie said...

Our Mom has a math degree so she knew all about those calculators.... but now days she uses one on computer or phone more than a normal one.

Good luck with getting more treats!

Maggie from Stillness at Cherith said...

Love those little paws on your knee =)
Definitely, wouldn't want to keep track of the treats!

The Island Cats said...

Oh Brulee...we love your fur-do!! Haha! You girls are the cutest!!

Noir the Texas Tabby said...

TREATS!! Ya know, that should be the ONE time the calculator does NOT come on! Back my human's long day, she said in chemistry class they had to use a slide rule....to this day she isn't sure why... :)

Katie Isabella said...

Girls...mom (and I too) is SWOONING! How she would LOVE to stroke your beautiful furs.

Cory said...

Ohhhh we sure hope there is no such thing as a treat calculator!

Mark's Mews (Ayla, Iza, and Marley) said...

Mebbe get Mom to keep track of the treats you get and then you go and subtract some. Youll get more treats!

Derby, Ducky said...

We don't want mum to count out our treats. Give us more.

Texas, a Cat in New York said...

Better line up treats, ladies ;-)
