I agree with you, Pam. Phones are meant to be calling instruments. Honestly, I miss the old when the phone was in the house and if you weren't home you missed the call! But then there are a lot of things I miss about the "old days". I'm going to have to sit down with the book and the phone to see what I can figure out - don't even know how to put my kids' phone numbers in yet. One of them called yesterday and I didn't recognize the number!!! 3 days ago
My youngest suggests I fly as it would be easier on me, but I don't know about the rest of the family up there. I have to figure driving/hotel costs vs flying and not having a car when I get there. Thanks for your sympathy and understanding.
