In Response to Re: Cell Phones?:
I do not have a cell phone, I was given one a few years ago & refused to use it. If anyone wants to call me, use the land line, if I am gone, leave a message. When I leave the house to do something, I do not want to be tied to a phone ( heck, at my age, if I wanted to keep something with me 24/7, it would be the bathroom ). There is a time & place for using a phone & it is not at the check out in a store holding up the people in line behind you because you can not chat & write a check at the same time, or at a sit down restaurant where the tables near you can hear your one sided conversation when they are paying for a nice evening out or (I wish the lady who was at the stop light last week facing me could read this) when driving & talking , one is so into the conversation, their mind is not on driving & they run the red light, when the turn light goes green & their light is still red (I bet all the horns blowing woke her up). I sure was glad there was not an accident. Most of our relatives & people we know have a cell phone, but I am still a hold out.

I have NEVER had a cell phone, and I don't want one! I don't have them for all the reasons stated above. I kid my husband when we go out for dinner. I tell him he must have a sign on his back that says...."If you have a cell phone and intend to use it, please sit by me! I love to hear all your conquests...and speak loudly.....at my age the hearing is nearly gone!" Funny you should mention the bathroom. The thing I first make a note of when we go to dinner is....where is the restroom?!
