<snip> Have to wonder how many of us are so gadgeted that we don't have
a line-powered phone, though. Good thing she finally found her cell
phone in the dark.
Huh. I wouldn't have anything BUT a land line phone. However, I
do also have a wireless hooked in, that my sister gave me several years
ago. I sometimes grab that when I go to the hopper, if I'm expecting a
call. Don' got no steenkin' cell phone.
But, what I DO have is, one battery flashlight I can find in pitch
dark. AND, one hand crank flashlight (no batteries to go dead) I can
find in pitch dark. PLUS, candles, AND matches, in two separate
locations, that I can find in pitch dark. I also have a super-nine I
can find in pitch dark. I AM considering getting a cell phone, to carry
driving, just-in-case the truck has problems on the road - but it ain't
a high priority.
You'll never get anywhere if you believe what you "hear".
What do you "know"?
