Answering machine message:

“I am not available right now, but thank you for caring enough to call.  I am making some changes in my life.  Please leave a message after the beep.  If I do not return your call, you are one of the changes.”

Hard to believe I once had a phone attached to the wall, and when it rang, I answered it not knowing who was calling.  It’s amazing I’m still alive.

I still have a landline, or as I like to call it, “a cell phone finder”.

When young people tell me about their problems, I like to tell them that story about that time I survived without my cell phone or Internet for 40 years.

Remember, “Politicians and diapers should be changed often and for the same reason.”
