Let me rephrase that opening line - - - it WAS that time again.
You girls were together and organized and you all came to the party on time. I was like the foolish virgins who went to the wedding banquet WITHOUT any oil - - - I was caught unprepared.
So here is my post. The party's pretty much over - - - and I'm just now dragging my sorry self through the door. Well, the clean-up crew may enjoy hearing from me!!!
I swear, I just don't know what on this great big wide green Earth is WRONG with me this fall. Last fall I was able to bring home the school bacon AND fry up my blog in the pan, but this year - - - - - - - - - not so much!
Anyway, for my vintage thrifty thingie this week I give you this little rendition, and I PROMISE LaVoice, I had this idea in the back of my mind even BEFORE I saw your post today:
These hands belong to my friend Vickie. She is a modern girl. She has one of those fancy phones that takes, stores, and sends pictures. It can send texts lickity-split, clean the house, do the laundry, go grocery shopping, bring it all home and store it away in the freezer and pantry before you can say "Jack Robinson."
And Vickie? - - - her fingers just FLY over that phone day and night, she hardly even gets any sleep, shes' so high tech and highly technical!!!
These hands belong to Fisherhubby. His phone is even newer-fangled than Vickie's!!! He can hold his horizontal OR vertical, he just touches his screen and he's roaming the world wide web, checking his Facebook and buying swamp land in China. Why his phone will even transport him to outer space and back instantaniously just like Captain Kirk and the crew on the Enterprise.
I can't even turn this baby ON!!!! Once I tried to touch-type in my password and I contacted Venus instead. (Oh I do exaggerate - but not by MUCH)
Because you see, I am a VINTAGE kind of gal!!!! This is my phone. It can't take pictures. It can't text. (Well it used to, but I had that option deleted) It won't fix dinner and it can't solve the Earth's problems. It does wear it's bling well - - - though even THAT fad is now passe, being circa 1998.
To be honest, it's just a tad too complex for me, but it was the most basic model they had when my simpler phone died and I had do a FREE "upgrade" a couple of years ago.
As cell phones go, this one is vintage, obsolete, and thrifty.
JUST LIKE ME.
