Friday Flash 55.....



The Daughter...
'Stop wallowing in the past, it's a new century,
things change. It makes life easier!
The Mother...
"Easier for who? I've gotten along just fine for
75 years without it. Whats the big deal anyway about
talking in 'Real Time'?
I don't need no new fangled Tell-EE-Phone!!

.

To all you Mothers out there..Happy Mother's Day!
I guess all change comes with some skepticism no matter
what century we are referring to.
If you or anyone you know has written a Friday Flash 55
Please come tell The G-Man...
I will visit, read, enjoy, comment....Then BOOK!!!
So from the Lowest-Tech host from coast to coast...
Have a Kick Ass Week-End!!!

Jannie Funster said...

Yes, and Ancient Romans shook their head at all those new-fangled contraptions coming out too, like The Wheel and such. Kids, these days...

And thanks for the Mother's Day mention!

My 55's here.

Refuse to give my kids a phone, they can get a job if they want one, however, tried to get a hold of one of them at school today and the secretary wouldn't get the son. If they don't want these kids to walk around talking on phones, then at least help a parent out when we need to connect with them.

Here's my 55

My cell phone looks like a flint knife from some prehistoric cave compared to what most people have--I keep waiting for Ma Bell to tell me it will no longer work,come spend a few benjamins on a new one--so far so good though.

I'm playin and am on a moon thing, now, apparently:
Moonlight

Me said...

Changes are coming faster and faster...the things my kids take for granted blows me away sometimes. Ah, the generation gap!

Happy 5/5 day, G-man! This must be like a national holiday on your blog, no?

By the way, I'm in! Mine is Here.

Monkey Man said...

Oh technology. I still like real time conversations, but we must be flexible.

My 55 is HERE.

Janna said...

I know people like that. :)
Thankfully my mom tends to be ok with technology stuff. But I do know older folks who tend to view technological innovation with ridiculous skepticism.
Sigh.

Thanks for another Friday 55!
Mine's here. :)

Pheromone Girl said...

Love it! My mom was a telephone operator in the age of switchboards and cords connecting us all, phone numbers like "Cypress" 23716 - this was a great reminder!

I played this week. Well?

PS: Thanks for the mother's day wishes - and happy mother's day to all the ones who mother those around them, blood or not.

kkrige said...

Oh ho! I too was thinking technology today with my 55.

TALON said...

Who knew how far-reaching technology would really become!

Happy Mother's Day to all the Moms!

libraryscene said...

Ha! G...ma-bell and I have a "don't phone me, I'll phone you relationship"! Nice way to remember (and remind). Hope you don't mind, but I stole an idea from ya with my crazy 55.
(first time was total link fail)

MomsJournal said...

hahaha My 89 year old grandmother got a cellphone before I did. I use mine as more of a watch and alarm clock more than anything else, but Grandma still doesn't understand what I used to do for a living before kids...Try explaining web design to an 89 year old.

anthonynorth said...

MorningAJ said...

I never thought I'd think like that - but technology is going faster than it needs to these days. Am I getting old?

Lulda Casadaga said...

Margaret said...

I remember my mom FINALLY got a microwave... years after I moved out. Never an answering machine and JUST recently got a "modern" phone - no dial anymore! I TRIED to show her the internet so she could see my blog... it isn't going to happen... the MOUSE confused her too much.

Oh well, Here is my 55 -

My 55

Helen said...

My children and grandchildren are ALWAYS saying ... 'you need a new cell phone.'

No I don't. No texting, no apps, no nothing except hello and goodbye.

Mona said...

My mom is stuck to her phone all the times and whenever she sees me on mine, she tells me that using mobile causes brain cancer!

Mother's day Bleh! Yuck!

Elaine said...

Cute...my mom's learning to text at 80 years. This is both a lesson in patience and uncondtional love on my part!

RNSANE said...

I tried,desperately, to get my mother to use a computer which she would have loved..but it was a no go! She barely mastered a cell phone, this brilliant RN.

secret agent woman said...

I admit, I'm one of those who jumped on the smart phone bandwagon. And now that I have email, internet, music, GPS texting, camera, and oh, yeah, telephone, rolled into one little device, I don't think I'll ever look back.
