OK, I’m not a fox….it just sounds good.
The 21st Century! Things have changed.
I moved recently … from the1970s to the 21st century.
Yes, I’ve left Red Foreman behind, nuked the land line and answering machine and signed up for twitter.
Alas, I tweet, therefore I am.
I also Facebook.
I even have blogger friends!
My goodness, was it only in the last century when I was forced to stop along side the road, constantly looking over my shoulder as I stuffed change into a pay phone?
And what about that first PC? $3,600.00 and weighing 60 lbs. Progress?
My first cell phone. Grossly overpriced, weighed too much, didn’t work in most places, and would fit in no one’s pocket. What a bargain!
But now, I’m a lap-topping, twittering, facebooking kind of guy with cyber friends every where.
Technology, that’s what happened. Things change, some for the better, some…well, not so much.
I’m not all the way there yet. I don’t have an ipad, ipod, or iphone. I have a laptop, a flip phone, and eyeglasses!
I feel more secure having a cell phone by my side. I like staying in touch with old friends and new ones, and I like the fact that I can google something and have it at my fingertips.
But, the endless ability to be found, the new gadgets, the new toys, i this and i that, apps, maps, it’s overwhelming to a man who grew UP with three channels and a black desk phone that weighed 20 pounds and was never answered during dinner!
There are days when I miss the times that no one could find me.
Yup, I’m a 20th Century Fox in the 21st Century.
