i’m doing this on a phone…first time so bear with me for a bit. i haven’t a clue how to add a link since i can only open one tiny window at a time, so go check out rarasaur for the original challenge link and those to the other people “playing”.
Oh cool. I figured out how to do a quotation symbol! woot!
I don’t have anything to blog about except my utter inability to access my blog through my server. it is annoying beyond belief to know the blog is there…it is fine…it’s active…and i can’t get in!
Heck I can’t even add my challenge badge to this from my phone.
Who knew there would someday be phones that a person could carry around with them and that still worked! i grew up with a wall-phone. it had a handset that you had to pick up and stick up to your head to listen and speak. The little wire that held it to the wall-base was about six inches long and curly…you couldn’t go anywhere with that sucker.
If you tried, it would yank you backwards like a spring and your head would bonk on the wall.
It was also a place where you would be trapped and your brother or sister could easily find you and demand you stop talking NOW and go do something else. or Mother would wander into the room and smack you on the top of the head to get your attention…………..yea, big time trouble whenever Mother caught us blathering on a phone.
Phones changed..a couple of car phones appeared in the early 70’s. Big suckers that took up half the front seat of limousines (no one but the rich could afford them)…then “cell phones” were introduced.
Big suckers with a huge antenna sticking out the top……….they worked , sort of, but cell phone towers were few and far between.
I got a pager instead of a cell. It would buzz and wiggle whenever you needed to call someone and just the phone number would scroll across its tiny face. Then I’d have to go find a phone somewhere so i could call back whomever was trying to gain my attention.
I had a “flip phone” cell for about ten years. Forget upgrades, I didn’t want them. What a hassle!
Then Gunnar, the dog of my heart, buried my phone in the veggie garden and I had to get this thing that looks like a kindle. Today I actually opened the web thingy on it’s face and clicked in.
I can’t believe how far I have come.
