What did we do back before we all had computers and cell phones, I love the idea of getting online and sharing my life stories and opinions with all of my friends and family, heck most of them are about my friends and family so most of you can relate to them.
Back before the home computer we had to write our thoughts down, fold the paper neatly, stuff it in an envelope then place a stamp on it and wait for the good old Postal Service to deliver it via what we call snail mail, today we get on our computer, write down our thoughts, hit send and then in a lot of cases we have a reply before we get through with the next persons email. We have two computers at home, Cindy's desk sits directly next to mine and while we are both working on the computer I have gotten an email from her and rather than turning my head to answer I have typed out a reply, hit send, then look at her to say I answered your email so be looking for it, How many of you are guilty of this, yes I see a few hands.
Years ago we left the house and wondered if anyone called while we were gone, we missed a lot of calls because we were away and missed many more because of the old busy signal, today most everyone has a cell phone, everybody except my Buddy Ron and I carries one from what I have gathered so with this said it looks like no one leaves home without a cell phone within their reach, and as far as the busy signal goes it has been replaced by a beep so we can talk to more than one person at a time, we are on vacation so to say right now and yes Cindy has a cell phone and yes I was standing in the middle of Randy's yard today talking with my Dad on Cindy's cell phone when I looked around to see Randy on his phone and also Josh talking on his, Tim was nearby texting a message probably to Elisa who was inside the house with the new baby and also her cell phone, I just hope the rest were at least talking to someone who was not on the property.
I told everyone that we were going to New Mexico to see our new Grandbaby and that we would be back in a couple weeks, I didn't expect to get any blogging done but waiting a couple weeks would be like sending a letter snail mail so with that said here is a little post for you all to know that I will be catching up on reading and responding to your blog posts as soon as we get back home to our own computers, I'm liable to be kicked off of this one soon because there is a little guy that Papa needs to get to one more time before it's time to call it a night.
Hoping to be home by Monday and until then you all take care of each other and be expecting a few pictures and tales of a good trip when we get back. I think I have a beep so I will have to text this message to Tim with this thumb while I hit the button to answer the beep to talk to Cindy who is calling me from the front porch with my other thumb, my right foot can hit send for the email I just sent next door to Randy and my left foot, will help me keep the computer chair from rolling away, I see I have a new message on my Face book chat and hitting that button is going to be trouble so with that said I am shutting everything down and getting back to vacation, oops better check my email again.
I'm still not sure how we survived without all of this technology!
