Isn't Technology Amazing, Sometimes?

I'm serious, y'all in my short life time, I've seen things that still blow my mind. Now, I know what you are going to say about this post, even before you say it.

"You can take the girl out of the country, but you can take the country out of the girl."

Well, that may be true, but you have to admit that the advances in technology are beyond anything we've even imagined.

Take this, for instance, today, I took a tiny, plastic thing, no bigger around than a penny, slipped it in to a divice not much bigger than a 50 cent piece, slid that in to a slot on my laptop, clicked a few buttons, took the device back out of the laptop, took the tinier piece out of the bigger one, and slipped it in to my cell phone. Now, voila, I can listen to music on my phone!

Or, how about this one. Last night I hit a button on my computer and with no cords or wires my printer printed the page that was showing on my screen! Am I the only one amazed here? Cause if so, then either I'm crazy or y'all are for taking it for granted.
Maybe this train of thought comes from the fact that here in the past two weeks, I've been in 1882 with ranchers and Sheriffs. Maybe, I'm just easily amused, but I don't think so.

Here's something new I'm going to try real soon. I've set it up that I can post blogs from my cell phone. Now, I don't know how easy this will be, but better to try and fail than never to try at all. So, let me apologize before I start blogging from my phone; sorry for the mistakes I'm going to make in the future.

Technology, while cool isn't always the best way to go, I'll admit. It has it's drawbacks, like everything else. I can't tell you how annoying it is to try and have a conversation with someone and their phone is ringing and ringing and ringing. Or, to try and talk while someone is texting their blessed fingers off! It makes me feel like you don't want to listen to me, when you won't stop answering your phone or won't stop texting. I mean, if you don't want to talk, just say, "I don't feel like talking or listening to you just now." :) I'd rather that, than you ignore me. Know what I mean?

Well, so those are some of the thoughts running around inside my brilliant mind, and I thought I'd share. I've been writing a lot here, lately, as well. Got the first 3 or 4 chapters of the sequel to "Wild Heart" finished, but it's just the rough draft, so don't get too excited. Still needs work, and haven't had anyone critique it yet. But, to have written 147 pages, double spaced since February, I think is good. When I get further along in it, and it's edited and all, I'll post a few teasers on here, if y'all think you'd be interested.

Well, need to go in search of a drink of water, so I'll end for now.
