pesky but necessary things these, lovely to read your words again Davy

    Thank you Gina and it is nice to be back, although in a much more relaxed manner 🙂 I am trying to make the pesky a little less necessary but it is difficult at times.

      i had to take some time away too and it has been cathartic, but my love for words and writing and also the interaction has brought me back. We all start blogging for different reasons but the one thing I believe keeps returning is the people we meet here. the bonds across the miles are strong and deep. Those pesky ones can really annoy at times and we get so easily distracted.

      I totally agree Gina. It is better to concentrate the time you have on the friends you make. The connections in this community go beyond the poetry and writing and I am blessed to have met some wonderful people.

Twitchy Parky fingers = ‘private’ txt to wife going to dragon-in-law instead, hence I use a flip-up/button type. Not cool, but amuses the kids & I can pretend to be capt kirk on Star Trek. Cheers Davy

    You leave me with such wonderful visions with your responses Nigel and I dread to think what the dragon-in-law was subjected to. I am all with you on the flip up phone they are so much more in line with our status as poets. Thanks for the comment and laughter.

We need them but we long to be free of them. Gosh, somehow we survived before cell phones; it seems so long ago. Thank you, Davy, for the reminder. 🙂

… That is perfectly acceptable Davy, just as long as you yourself are not the ‘noisy attachment’!

    Moi Roland!! I am so quiet you would hardly know I was there. It is funny though, on the 16.50 from London to Oxford the Quiet Zone is occupied by the Quiet Zone Police. If you cough in there you get the stares and the shushes.

I love your approach on the advantages and disadvantages of technology.

On a train with many ‘ Noisy attachments ‘ it can be quite an
unwelcome entertainment. Or intriguing depending on what is
happening.
I have only got an IPhone SE but it works perfect and is smaller
so fits in handbag pocket neatly. am told to upgrade…hmmm…

    I am way behind the game Miriam as I have just upgraded to an IPhone SE 🙂 It fitted perfectly in the Manbag. I quite enjoy listening in to the phone conversations on the train. There is always a piece of poetry hidden in there. Thank you for your thoughts Miriam.

Excellent, Davy! We feel ya’! I like a balance between noisy and quiet, related to phones, and life in general.

OOH! I love to send silly texts to my grown-up kids! 😉 I send them texts like, “It’s 11 p.m.
Do you know where your mother is?!” and “I love you more than Garfield loves lasagna.” and “If I disappear, interrogate the squirrels. They’ve been seen gathering nuts.” and “Hey, it’s Cooper here! Send me some hot dogs ASAP!” (Cooper is my dog!) My kids love my texts! HA! 😉 😮

OH! My husband has his phone set so that when I call him the ringtone is The Troggs song “Wild Thing” and it plays loudly! He nicknamed me Wild Thing after we first met when I was 17 years old. 🙂 That’s all I’m gonna’ say about that! 😉

HUGS!!! 🙂
