29/31 - We've laid the cables and the wires ...


I used to have a phone like this on my desk at work - seriously! It only had one ring tone, it couldn't take photographs, you couldn't surf the net, or download music nor text or play games on it. Useless bloody thing!

But you do need to charge it, can not lose it in the bag (girl's problem!), you have to use your memory to get the phone numbers and you need fingers with muscles to rotate the disk.
I like very much your paintings, even more I like your comments :-))

Irina summed it up so well---I'd like one of those phones to use--I do have several types of new fangled phones and an old Princess one---but this one you so elegantly drew is the queen I think...

Beautiful sketch! Love the detail and the touch of red on the numbers. I had a similar phone when I was growing up and couldn't wait to get one of the new plastic ones. Wish I had one of these back.

This is a great drawing and I loved when life was that simple.

So lovely! We had one of these but it had to go eventually as it couldn't be used with more than one other extension... i was so sad to see it go. Why are old things more attractive or is that just nostalgia?

LOL! But oh how wonderful it looked.
