Welcome - to the 21st Century!
I used the Freshly Made Sketch to create this card for my mother who just returned from wintering in Florida. Closing up one apartment and opening another requires a lot of planning and attention to detail. My mother still handles all of her own affairs and does really well but we had one minor glitch - the phone in her apartment here wasn't turned back on. She called me tonight and said:
"You have to call the phone company in the morning. My phone still doesn't work. I'm 87 years old and anything could happen. I shouldn't be here alone without a telephone!"
I totally agreed and told my daughter that I was going to worry all night because Gram had no phone. To which she replied: "Well what did Gram just call you on?"
Yep - Gram called me on my cell phone from her cell phone and it never dawned on either one of us that she certainly did have a phone. I called her right back to tell her - "Hey you do have a phone!" She replied "I do?" I'll be calling the phone company in the morning.........
