Since I have been thrust into the modern age, kicking and screaming, by my kids-from 14-37 years old, I have learned (sort of) to use a “Smart Phone” and such. (Thank you teenager who insisted that “everyone” had one, so I bought one for both of us.)
I still like my home phone-I can lay in bed and talk-not text, not worry about running my battery down, etc. and, thus, relax.
I fully appreciate the convenience and the feeling that I can relax when I am away from home, because my kids can get in touch with me. I may be in the last generation to use home phones much, but, to me they are still a wonderful tool!
