Texting Can Be Fun

With my old cell phone I didn't do any texting as each text coming and going cost an extra dime over the monthly charge for the minutes in the plan.  Now I have a Tracfone where I prepay for my minutes and when I text it gets subtracted from my minutes usually 3 tenths of a minute per text.  At the rate I pay for minutes with double minutes each text costs about 5-6 cents, but I don't have to pay extra, it just gets taken from my total minutes.

Last week for the helluva it I decided to send a text to a cousin.  I said, "Thought about giving you my new cell NO. then remembered u never called my old cell"  A few minutes later I got a reply.  "Why not?  Who is this?  Give me your no so I can think about calling."  And then another, "Maybe I lost your no. Or was waiting for you to call or...."  I'll let him wonder about who sent the text until the next time I see him, which may be a year or three??

One of these days I'll see if I can send an e-mail with my phone.  Don't know if that'll work as it doesn't say anything about e-mails in the phone manual.


  1. I visit with local friends in person and see no reason to get into texting. Rick bought a cell phone but doesn't understand how to use it other than to make a call or answer one so it's in a drawer turned off.

    Ya gotta mess with them a lot if you want to learn them.

  2. I'm trying to find the highlighted text referenced in your newer post. I noticed that when I use the Blogger spellcheck and don't turn it off, it keeps the highlighted feature on. Could that have been the problem?

  3. No highlighted text that I can find.

  4. 2 things I won't do..text and use the word bling in a sentence..besides this one.

  5. It seemed to be happening when I was signed into blogger before, after I signed out of blogger, I no longer noticed the highlighted words. After signing in now I don't see any highlighted words with spam lurking.
