Elaine’s new Samsung Galaxy S8 Note handheld

Elaine has been frustrated with various issues with her Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge handheld for some time, but last week it got dropped on the pavement and run over. This added a major issue, since the screen was severely cracked; it continued to work but was hard to read. We have been ready to upgrade it and this just made it imperative to do so soon. I had gone to a Samsung S8+ and like it very much. When Lisa Violette was visiting she showed us her phone, which I believe is a Note 8, and Dennis Murphy showed us his Note 8 on his recent visit.

Most readers read my stories through my Facebook link and others received them by email, and since both those routes had built-in commenting capabilities I never saw the need for doing it otherwise.
