A Note on Innovation

I am now a cell phone owner. Much to my dismay, the Wife has purchased a cell phone so that I can remain in touch no matter where I am in the world. She almost bought me a pink cell phone but I lucked out and I was able to get a blue one (the last one at RadioShack).

Oh, and I almost forgot to tell everyone that the Teenager now has a learning permit to drive. The entire neighborhood is in a state of alert. Yesterday, we let her drive the van home from Dutchman's Market and she did well until she tried a left hand turn. Apparently she doesn't really have a good feel for how fast a car should be travelling when the turn is executed. 35 mph is a bit quick. We made the turn but little Touchdown exclaimed, "That was a little scary!" I agreed with the assessment.

Our life's are quickly spiralling out of control. The minivan on two wheels is not a pretty scene.

I think you need to do a little more practicing in an isolated area. Glad everyone is OK.

So now you have a cell phone. Be careful, before long the teenager will want one. Good luck

Too late Lucy. The Teenager came home from Houston this summer, after visiting her Dad, with a cell phone. I guess I can at least be glad I am not paying the text messaging bill.

Go Teenager Go! I hope she gives you a run for your money. Hallelujah you have a cell phone. Should I take the hint that you don't want me calling, since I haven't been given the number yet?

Don't feel bad Bishopmom. He doesn't know the number, and we are still working on the concept of, you own a cell phone, you should take it with you.
