There used to be a time
when there was a party line.
Sometimes during an emergency you would have to ask the neighbor if you could use the phone,
afterall she may have been on the phone for a few hours.
Oh and if we ever picked it up and overheard something,
we could not tell anybody because we would have been accused of eavesdropping!
Now heres the thing, I believe that we have become too dependant on this facebook thing,
yes I was on there, to stay in touch with some of my family members, but then I decided one day that I
did not like everyone knowing my business, so here I am on blogger, but there not here unless I want them here.
Besides if you can't make an effort to phone someone,
then maybe your not as good as friends as they say they are.
So today the phone rang and I had a coffee in my hand and I jumped about three feet off the couch,
startled, so I spilled my coffee because I had a Cataplexy spell and was unable to answer the phone
anyway! The call went to my answering machine and when I went to listen there was nothing.
So who phones and never leaves a message!
I know because the numbers show up people.
You need to remember this.
Anyone that has done this I have asked to please leave a message next time.
On our cell phone we appaarently can text,
I f I could read the buttons, by the time I would be able to text
We prbably could of had a fifteen minute conversation !
So I know this makes me sound old and out of date,
I know alot of you use all these new contraptions.
Maybe the phone will be obsolete one day.
Note to make us laugh,
one of my nieces were here and I had an old antique phone.
She did not know how to use it, so I showed her ,
Then whomever on the other end said,
If you would like to reach such and such a department please press 1.
She slammed the phone down, and said how can I press 1 Auntie Cindy!
I thought we were both going to die laughing!
I really think I laughed the hardest that day.
So I am leaving this post on a good note!
The last few days I have noticed other blogs talking about facebook,
A note on facebook does not a Christmas spirit make.
I will be sending cards and phoning the ones I love.
I usually spend about an hour a day with my Mom on the phone!
Always get a phone call from my sister every day , we check on each other
and have for years and years.
I also have an elderly friend, she told me she has texting she can do on her cell.
I said to her do you know how?
She said she has her cell phone in case of an emergency,
and if there is one,
the only thing she will do
is call 911.
And we laughed.!
Have a great day everyone!
Oh, oh, oh my favorite message
is the ship foghorn telling me I am going on a cruise.
They better phone someone who cares.!
Have your very Best Day!
