When Your "Device" Was A Princess Telephone By Western Electric
I never thought I would say this, but I think I am longing for the days before iPhones. I just returned from a trip to the Mall to buy a new phone. Yikes, it took over two hours and that is not counting the time I put in yesterday researching the so called "device" which is now a common household word.
Pink Vintage Princess Phone
Be honest don't you long for the days when you owned your very own Princess telephone? Remember the color palette of Princess phones, pink, blue, beige, white and turquoise? Having your very own Princess phone was a very big deal in the sixties.
Remember Phones With Night Lights?
Get A Grip Girl: There Is More To Worry About Than iPhones
A tropical cyclone devastates the island of Vanuatu, Russia is amping up it's Northern Fleet, UCONN Men's basketball lost last night and I am fretting over my iPhone apps? "Get a grip girl", I told myself. I promised myself I would go home, make a cup of tea and pretend I could handle the fact that the new iPhone no longer has my old ring tone. I'm in shock right now, forgive me ....I need to a Princess Phone and my favorite doll to cuddle with.
