In the world today most people text and do not call on the phone. The other day Rev. Glenn called me because I wished him a happy birthday by text. He said he still liked the older ways speaking to a person on the phone. I truly enjoyed the conversation. I do tend to call rather than text if possible. Years ago the rates for even using the phone were quite high.  Long distance was ridiculously unaffordable. I can remember calling my father-in-law one time to see how he was. He asked, “Why are you calling me?” I told him I just wanted to see how he was doing. He told me fine that it was too expensive and hung up.  It hurt my feelings as I just wanted to chat with him for a few minutes.  He was like a father to me so I liked speaking to him. When my late husband and I started our contract engineering business we used the best possible company for long distance rates. Even though the calls were in a five state radius our phone bill each month, if we were lucky, was around twenty-five hundred dollars or two thousand seven hundred twenty-five Euros. When I went home to Ireland so that my son could attend college, I used Skype as it was available with United States phone numbers. I actually had a landline and an Irish cell for local calls.  Now people can call all over their countries and often overseas calls are quite reasonably. If you use certain apps the calls are only the price of the app. The problem with cell phones today is that kids use them in school and focus on them rather than school work. With all the games and YouTube videos kids are more interested in them than going outside playing, swimming, doing sports or just riding a bike. How often do you use your phone to call people or do you simply text? The Good Gus Series is available online at Kindle, Nook and Waterstones.
