__My "contrary" view of those things now deemed... indispensable. I certainly use my cell phone!

Of course, I am not surprised. LOL!

I don't own a cell phone. I think I'm in a very small minority - lol!

I enjoyed this, though there's sadness, too.

This reminds me of so many stories about night life in Lisbon.

there is a local advertisement, here in TT in which a homeless man offers info to a starched well dressed fellow about cell phone bargains; this one made me smile and think of our advert

much love

I think a lot of homeless people probably own better electronics than I do! :) Here in Arkansas, it is common to see a really run-down mobile home with a nice Direct TV dish attached and a really decked-out truck parked in the gravel driveway with expensive rims. Interesting how that works.
