Right after I finished last night's post I went to check if I had any phone messages on my home land line phone. And the land line screen had fuzzy lines, instead of clear writing. My phone/phone machine was gone.
Yes, I still use a land line, despite having a personal cell phone and a work cell phone with two-way radio capacity, and a land line at the office. One woman, four phones, does seem excessive when I see it written out, but it doesn't feel excessive. Until last night's discovery it seemed inconceivable to give up my land line and I was set to spend part of my windfall on a replacement phone/answering machine. But I didn't stop tonight and buy a new phone and the more I think about it, the more I think I may not need a land line. Is this the time to move to cell phone only? Have any of you made this jump and if you have, has it worked out well?
I've had the issue of changes in technology on my mind for the last week and have been thinking of starting a series discussing various items in our lives. The telephone was at the top of my list to blog about and I've been compiling others that I'll be writing about in the weeks to come. The series is called, "Do You Still..." Inquiring minds want to know, do you still have a land line?
Appreciate all the good ideas I received for spending my windfall. I especially like the idea of underwriting a pitcher or two of sangria at the Spanish restaurant in Howard Beach. I've got red wine on my mind.
Sweet dreams and wishes for a great Thursday!
