Be thankful for people.

November 22, 2017

Many people are traveling today, so this will be short, if not sweet.

After doing a very unscientific survey, many family gatherings are reporting that they are banning “devices” including phones, from Thanksgiving get-togethers.

That seems like a good thing,

“George” says he just wants to see if his relatives still have the power of speech. He says he doesn’t even care if they talk politics.  He just wants to know if they have what he calls incurable electronic laryngitis, given that his granddaughter texts him when she lives less than 1,000 feet away.

Of course, if you can’t make the family gathering, you could actually use your phone for its primary function and call.

There isn’t an emoji in the world that can substitute for actually hearing the words “I love you, Grandpa” when said by a seven-year-old.
