Other things have changed. I was reminded of this today when I got a new cell phone. I have been wanting a Samsung Note 4 for along time. I had an S3 which is a good phone but the Note 4 is much bigger and for my eyesight that is a very good thing. So I went to Best Buy to look for the phone. They had it on sale. Yea. The problem was how long it took just to get the phone and have them change all my data over to the new phone. And the paper work. I got Sharon one as well so I had to sign the paper work for both phones. I signed four paper documents and four electronic signatures and I was there a total of about 2 to 2 1/2 hours. I have bought cars in less time and with less paper work.
I got my first cell phone in I think about 1992 and it was a bag phone and cost about the same as a phone today. I think this is where the biggest changes have taken place. Phones, computers, and the like. Other than these things and the price of ANYTHING, not much has changed for me since 1985. I still use a stove and microwave to cook with. I drive a car that is a 1950s retro design (HHR). I still have the same wife, although she has changed (we won't talk about that). We live on a boat that was built in 1978, the year after I graduated from high school. I still drink Dr. Pepper, although now it's diet Dr. Pepper. I can not think of a single food that I eat now that was not available then, other than broccoli. Did they have broccoli back then?
Well as I think of it I guess the biggest change is in oneself. As I get older I am definitely changing. The hair on top of my head is going on strike but that's ok nose hair, ear hair, and back hair are taking up the slack. God does have a sense of humor although sometimes I don't think He's funny. I do know some of my attitudes toward life and other people have changed and my patience with idiots has definitely changed. It has not increased by the way.
Oh well I think this is the longest post I have made in at least three years so it is time to stop rambling on.
