Many years ago hubby and I bought a quality set of phones for our Florida condo from Costco at a very good price. It was great –We had a phone for every room with one to spare. Last year, two died. This season I started with three. Now only one is partially working. It is getting old and is having trouble holding its charge, with the ability to hold it only for a minute or two at a time –before it involuntarily discharges. This sometimes can be an advantage. The phone works fine for very brief calls but is great for cutting short telephone solicitors and those who like to engage in long winded conversations. An added advantage- I get good exercise jumping over furniture and running to answer the phone in time, before it disconnects.
I also have cell phones that may or may not work. I am not the only one down here with phone issues.For some reason they don’t seem to be too reliable. Maybe it is all the construction going on and the big buildings interfering with the reception or maybe it is because the aging population has difficulty with technology.
In any event I suggest if you want to get hold of me: use my email. twitter, Facebook or my WordPress blog. Better yet–hire a skywriter . I have a clear view of the sky.
