    Thank you for the kind offer, and friendship.  I will gladly accept friendship, but my rejection of cell phones is only partly financial.  I really detest the things! 

    The arrogance of people who use them in public places, and thoughtlessly disturb everyone around them with meaningless chatter, are a symptom of a sick (as in "terminally ill") society.  When I was working in an electronics store 20+ years ago, I swore an oath on my cats that I would never own one of the pesky things.  I did consider getting a very inexpensive "emergency" phone while I was commuting to work, but now that I can no longer drive a car, or own one, I don't need a phone to call the Auto Club.

    Our land line may go out once a year, and I can live with that.  and,if I stop breathing, I DO NOT WANT to be revived, anyway.  I'm wearing a MedicAlert bracelet that advises EMTs NOT to resuscitate me EVER.

    That may sound stupid, but I have heard too many stories of people who have had CPR performed on them, and "come back to life" permanently brain damaged.  NOT moi!

    But many thanks for the offer; that was a kind and very thoughtful thing to do.  You just didn't know about my peculiar weirdness regarding cell phones.  <3

    My friends list got deleted when I left a/n in October, so I'm just re-building.
