My thoughts exactly. The Alzheimer patient will start to cry before they would pull hard enough on the door for the eye to come out. Alzheimer patients get frustrated very easily and give up quickly.

I don't gab on the phone a lot. I'm not very worried about missing calls, but I don't go for a short walk without my cell phone. I can't imagine driving any where without it.

Thank you all for the several kicks in the pants about the dreaded cell phones. I'll burn my Luddite member's card and go read the directions on how to operate the little beast. I scanned the booklet yesterday and find that with all the pre-paid minutes that came with the phone, I can call Albania or Tanzania. Or maybe play "Gotcha" -- sneak up on Son #2, who has Caller ID. He'll see my new number and say, "Oh, good. It's not Mom."

One Con-Vent: Happy Spring, All.

Sometimes you have to see it from your kid's point of view...

I have actually made a call on the new phone. (Me to me -- that really didn't hurt, now, did it?). My kids are happy, so how can I not be?

However, I do believe the world is too much with us.

PS - A little while ago while watching the noon news on TV, there came a strange, tinkling melody. Duh. I didn't reach the phone soon enough and it quit. There may be a message; I'll broach that subject later today. One step at a time.

That was probably one of your children calling you to see how you like the phone. YOu can see who called.

I only carry my phone because Shrek tells me to. He didn't say I have to turn it on...
