Down on the Farm: Breaking Up

Email News Alerts

Modern communication has improved to the point where I find myself yelling, "You're breaking up!" several times per day into my phone.


That never happened in the old days with those clunky dial phones. Once you got connected, you were connected.

You had to stay close to the kitchen, at least until they started to sell those long cords at Radio Shack, but you didn't have to scream, "I am losing you!" to loved ones while you were in the frozen food aisle.
