Can't Hear There from Here

Oh joy! We're entering the modern era of cell phones next week, casting off our 5 yr old plan and equally antiquated black heavy useless 'free with signup' phone and getting an account that doesn't zap us with roaming charges between Roanoke and Blacksburg for pete's sake. We get 300 free long distance prime time minutes and 1000 evening and weekend minutes!

Oh yeah. We can only use our long distance minutes from outside of Floyd County since the powers that be have chosen to refuse to allow towers in the county for digital service. I understand this, and given a vote, I probably would have made this choice. But calling the kids in far away places while sitting on the side of road in the next county, I'm going to wish we could have our cake and eat it too.

Can you hear me now? Well, NO. Not from here.

Somehow I do NOT see you using up all of those minutes, even as cell-centered as your lives tend to be. What next? Will you be trading the old truck in for an Audi, and the flannel shirts in for turtlenecks? Any rate, Happy Easter, and anytime you want to drive out to Copper Hill to give me a call, let me know and I'll wait by the phone. God bless. Love you kids.
