HELLO? HELLO!

By Nancy Whitaker

Have you ever taken two empty tin cans, put a hole in the bottoms of them and tied a piece of string between them? This is what we used to call “walkie talkies.”

I bet kids today might make fun of our old fashioned way of trying to communicate with each other. However, let me say this, “Kids are sure more technically minded now than I am, or ever was.”

In this world of video games, iPods, Internet, and iPhones I think I may be getting left behind. I see my little grandsons playing with a hand held game or some type of iPad and they sure appear to know what they are doing.
