Isn't Modern Technology Great?
I've posted this header picture before but I like it. I like it except for the utility pole. It seems every picture I want to take now days has a pole or wires in the way and now there is the towers popping up everywhere in our area. I do like my high speed internet so it takes a tower I guess. One day I called the company with a problem and the lady told me it would be fixed as soon as a man drove from several miles away and climbed the tower. I can remember living where there weren't any poles and then when the electricity came in it was exciting to have light at the pull of a chain. We didn't have it but our relatives did. Then when we moved into town my sister and I had our own electric light with a string hanging down to turn it on in our room. She and I fussed over who was going to pull the string before going to bed. Now days kids probably fuss over who will have to flip the switch. Oh I saw advertised a lamp where you just clap your hands to turn it off. Good, because kids now days have their own room and their own light and their own I-pad and their own I-everything. No, I'm not jealous but I'm glad I have lived in both times and was able to see it all transpire. It makes me thankful for all the modern technology. I'll just ignore the pole and enjoy the flowers and wonder at the little building with Texas printed on the side.
