No more landline.
I'm sure this is not news for many. It's an all cellular world with everyone saying, "Huh, what did you say?" into their smart phones.
However, I held on to the last vestige of clear signal. Ray paid the bill each month. But, we've been a week without service (I assume it was weather related) and Ray was losing the battle with the customer relations folks. Actually there were no folks - he was in auto dial hell. No end in sight.
So, since I don't chat with my father weekly on the phone (we pretty much email because he keeps weird hours), and I mostly email or text with friends to arrange a get together, this made sense.
It's all moving quickly. I've only had a cell phone for two years. Yes, you read that right. I was a hold out. I still haven't mastered all the buttons and programs and swiping stuff. Now I don't have a backup plan. I can't reach for the phone on the wall.
I will learn and I guess I need to turn on my ringer.
So what ringtone shall I put in for you? A movie phrase, a blast of classic rock, or an animal sound.
No more landline. I am adrift at sea. My ringtone shall be a foghorn...........
