Cell phones

Hello again, dears!

This is a very odd thing, blogging. Time was, a person conversed with a person, face to face, or they used a pen to write on paper, then put it in a stamped envelope and mailed it off.   Now I worry for people’s safety, with their heads down in those gadgets, driving, walking across the street, pushing a baby carriage!!

Back in the very old days, we had a thing called a “telephone”; it came out of the wall and you sat with it and spoke with a person at the other end of a very long wire, sitting in THEIR house with their telephone.  My sister used to keep a list of possible subjects taped to the wall in case she ran out of things to talk about with her boyfriends. That telephone was in the kitchen, so there were precious few secrets in a family. Don’t forget how to speak out loud with your friends and family, and kindly don’t bring those gadgets to the dinner table!

Be sweet with each other,  Aunt Hattie

    My dear sister,
    It is my feeling that you have taken leave of your senses. I wonder why you feel compelled to expose yourself in SUCH an unladylike fashion?
    Your distressed sister, Hannah
