In Touch?

There was a time that I called a friend, specifying three rings. He was on a party line phone and three rings meant the call was for somebody in his family. Of course, if his family was known to be away, somebody else on the party line would pick up and tell me. They'd even promise to pass along the message that I had called.

Today, I called my son's house to talk to his wife. She didn't answer. I left a message. Later, I tried her cell phone. She didn't answer that. Still later, I called my son's cell phone. I was redirected to an automated answering service. Finally, I tried my granddaughter's recently acquired cell phone. I couldn't reach anybody that way, either.

I would try email, but the question isn't that monumental.

I love modern conveniences, don't you?
