ON THE BACK BURNER

Dec. 7

Technology is wonderful. I can remember my Grandmothers phone. It was black and had a stem that you talked into and another thing that you held up to your ear. I think you screamed into it because you couldn’t believe that the other end could hear you. Then the phones shrunk. Ours was still black, but you held the  receiver and could talk and hear with the same apparatus. I think we stopped hollering into the receiver. Then came the wall phone and the long cord. Then cordless and now the cell. but wait , there is more,we talked to Israel while we all were eating brunch this morning and... still more... we could see each other. And now  tell me that this isn’t progress ? It is amazing actually. When I was a kid and was sick in bed, I would look at the pictures of “ the future”in the encyclopedia . It has come true. And  the only reason that I can spell encyclopedia is because of WaltDisney.

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.

Everything sounds so wonderful Leona. Venice will seem boring . I would want to move to Portownsend where the kids are living. All sounds great . Is there?
