July the 4th12:15……. Friends.
In a recent post, I wrote of the amount of time that children spend on their computers or smart phones.
I have a confession to make, I am addicted to my computer!!
I, like many others of my age, have suddenly found a way of ‘meeting’ new friends. I feel as if I know them all personally.
During most of my life, I have had only a handful of friends, plus a few neighbours and work-mates, with whom I would have had a conversation of any length.
Can anyone imagine, then, having a conversation lasting more than a few minutes about pram’s? Maybe, with one or two friends, but here we have comments from more than a dozen responders, about their favourite make of pram or how they loved their trolley or go-carts, eventually made from them.
All this made possible by that pesky computer, or one of these new fangled smart phones.
I don’t know what the world is coming to!
