telephones or should I say lack of them

Five little telephones, working at their best                                                                                                                            one broke down and was put to rest.

One little telephone, trying to do  its best

is breaking down  and will soon  join the rest.

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.

  1. 😀 Your post made me laugh, Elaine. I need one of those phones especially for the solicitors. I think the true reason for break downs are simply that nothing is made as well as it once was and everything is always being updated-updated-updated. And with every update the product or system becomes worse. Have a great day, my friend. ❤

    Thank you Elizabeth ,you have a nice day too.


  3. I’m telephoned challenged myself. I keep my flip-cell phone in the car. Why not? I have a home phone in the house. I do forget to check the messages on the cell, but my friends know that. My family just gave me an iphone thinking that now I will carry it with me and learn to text. The thing is I DON’T Want to be available 24/7. I don’t want to text. I’m afraid I don’t even jump up to answer the house phone, because half the time it a robo-caller – but I do love caller ID because of that. 😉
