Yessiree he went and joined the 21st century. He talked to Jen and she went out and got him a cell phone..she had a family plan and well since he is family he now has a cell phone.
I cannot give anyone the number because I cannot remember how she said to find the number..and I did not have a pen or a pencil to write it down..I suppose I could have scratched my arm until it bled and wrote it in blood but I figured that would be a little overkill and kinda messy.
So if I have to call Far Guy I will have to call one of our daughters or grandchildren to pass the message on to him..because they all have his number.
I borrowed it to text Madison the other day..I do know how to text…or I did the other day..maybe it was just beginners luck. It took me twenty minutes the other day to call Trica..finally I got the call accomplished. This contraption is supposed to have a voice operated system..I think maybe Far Guy and I should have it programmed that way…our grandson Noah has his phone programmed that way…so we will wait for him to visit.
I am not sure what Far Guy was thinking when he got a cell phone..but he does remember to take it with him. I do not answer it..heck I don’t even answer the phone at home unless he is gone. I answer when he is gone because he might just be calling to say “I Love you..don’t bother cooking or cleaning or doing that laundry..I will be home soon to tend to all those really boring jobs that you my princess should not be bothered with.”
What do I know how to do with it? I can lock it and unlock it. There are no on or off buttons..no send..or hang up buttons..the numbers are really tiny too..who invented such a tiny phone with itty bitty numbers?
I can hardly wait until one day when he is at home and both of his phones start ringing at once. His new phone does tell him who is calling..is has cute little computer like voice that doesn’t pronounce Trica’s name correctly either. But he can send and receive calls from home inside the house..no more standing out in the middle of the yard or hanging out by the mail box trying to get a signal..progress comes to the boonies:)
