The year is 2012…and I have finally entered the 21st Century…I purchased a 4G iPhone…now…before you get excited…I know…there’s a 4GS out…so I’m already behind…but…I’m ahead of where I was…which was my daughter’s hand-me-down 3G…given to me to replace what was one step up from a bag phone…well…maybe two steps…but it was pretty obsolete…

The thing was…it worked…it made phone calls…no…it didn’t do the neat things that the smart phones do…it was definitely in the slow readers group…but it made phone calls…

I guess the thing is…I’m not a techy groupie…I obviously don’t upgrade every two years…just because I can…I don’t trade cars as soon as that new car smell is fading…it’s just not who I am…

But…that being said…I was like a kid in a candy store last night…suddenly texting was more fun…my fingers landed on the correct keys more easily…getting online was a breeze… I added Twitter…I added Facebook…I read a blog…okay…it was mine…just checking it out…but…I must say…I loved the new phone…

Now…my mind is drifting…the new cars are made to interface with the phones…hmmm…

Bertha…quickly reminds me of how much I enjoy not having a car payment…

And…what can I say…she’s right…that is why I don’t drive a new car…I love not having a payment…so for now…I’ll enjoy my new toy…and drive my old reliable…

PS…if you’ve read Bertha-Size Your Life!…you know…Bertha…drives a ‘56 Thunderbird…you don’t think surely…she hasn’t had it all these years…has she…I’d better check her phone…
