I never forget that old time in my life. We all had beeper on our hips. It's funny how landlines and beeper devices were all the rave at one time. I don't miss them at all. Goodness I don't.

I never used a pager/beeper but my sister and mom had one back in the days.

I am not really into gadgets. My brother was. He wanted to have it badly when it was the in thing , he would cajole my dad to buy him. So eventually my father bought him.

I had one for work, but not personal. It wasn't all that bad. A pain if you weren't near a landline phone and had to find a pay phone. Back then pay phones were pretty easy to find for the most part. I like my cell phone most of the time. Every now and then though I miss the old days. It's harder to hide from people nowadays.

That is why I often leave my cell phone home.

I remember people having them I knew but I never had one. I never understood paying for it, yet having to use a landline or cellphone to then answer it.

In order, I had a landline, then a fax, then a mobile, then email. I missed out on pagers and I have yet to Skype.
