Wanted: iPod Touch

I have a friend who would like an iPod Touch to load with bird and flower apps for his walks. Do you have one sitting around somewhere not doing anything? If so, would you be willing to give it a good home? This senior would take good care of it and use it for his daily (almost) walks in the Sequim area.

If you have one and would like to pass it on just give me a shout at rserkes@mac.com.
