My new toy

Yup....Even I can not resist peer pressure forever. As much as I wanted to remain strong and stand firm in the belief, that I could live without the bonds placed on society, by the evil empire, called telecommunications. I didn't need a cell phone. I was living life to the fullest without a cell phone. The one time in my life when a cell phone could have come in handy I had three men drive by me, stop and ask if they could call someone to help get me out of the ditch.

But then last week happened. The universe spun around a little too quickly and I had to jump on the cell phone bandwagon. I was more than 45 minutes late to pick up DD #2 from school. I was in the middle of nowhere because some brilliant person (oh wait I was the only on in the car at the time) decided to take back roads instead of the highway. If I had a cell, I could have called the school and let them know that I was on my way. Instead I made the principal and a teacher stay the extra 45 minutes without any idea that I was actually coming to get her.

So I researched my options online and talked to the guy at work whose sole purpose in life is to communicate on his cell. I found a basic phone, a good service provider, a monthly plan that is reasonably priced and is good value for the money. And to top it all off, my phone is RED!!!!!

But the best part of all is......the phone came with a free knitting bag.

That's what its for....isn't it???

Until next time
Yours in Yarn

I love red, my cell phone is red also. Yes, of course it is a knitting bag.
I am going to NY tomorrow on Amtrak.
Kristen, my Granddaughter is doing a craft auction at her church on Sat. with all of the proceeds going to Haati. I have things left from my craft show, so I am taking a suitcase full for her. It is New Hope Baptist Church in Watertown. I think it is from 10 to 4. They are also having a crock pot cook off. It should be fun. Maybe you can come. I would love to meet you. I think the church is on Arsenal, not really sure though. We will be there all day.

Welcome to the club. I have a cell phone that waits and waits for some emergency to happen so it can get called into service. That and send messages to Brother when my hockey team is beating his hockey team.

My friend and I were recently discussing about how involved with technology our daily lives have become. Reading this post makes me think back to that debate we had, and just how inseparable from electronics we have all become.

I don't mean this in a bad way, of course! Societal concerns aside... I just hope that as memory gets cheaper, the possibility of downloading our memories onto a digital medium becomes a true reality. It's one of the things I really wish I could see in my lifetime.

Hi again:
I just want to say I told you the wrong times. The craft fair is from 10 to 12.

Thanks for traveling to Watertown today for the craft auction. It was fun to meet you and hold your traveling sock, with needles still attached.
