In the Boonies

The inlaws still don't have Internet. I didn't believe that there were people really like that in America...but there are. I know because I'm here. In the middle of nowhere. It's not that I didn't know that they didn't have Internet, it is just that I thought it was like a bad dream...and I was going to wake up to discover that my husband's parental figures were outfitted with all things cyber and net affiliated.

Not so much.

So here I am. One finger chicken-pecking away on Rosie. Ever thankful for her and what small connection she is allowing me to have to my friends who live in my computer.

Spoiled? Most definitely. Addicted? Probably.

But so ever-grateful at this time of Thanksgiving reflection for the friendships and bonds that this blog has blessed me with. My life is better because you are in it. And I am so very thankful to the Giver of All Good Gifts for giving you to me.

Because you, my friends, are incredible gifts.

And so I will chicken-peck away for you. Out here. In the boonies.

Happy Thanksgiving!! And may all of your pants still fit on Friday!

My parents don't have internet either, or cable. Well, I don't have cable either, but I can handle that because I have internet!

My dad did finally upgrade his phone so they can get on and look at FaceBook and my blog on there.

Oh, may parents also do not have an answering machine or call waiting, which drives me CRAZY! It wouldn't be that big of deal but my teenage brother is always on the phone. Like an hour at a time! I can just call my Dad on his cell, but my Mom only has a Track phone and NEVER has it on! I have to text my brother on his cell to get off the phone so I can call my mom.

How do people live like that?
