Before cellphones, before answering machines…

I write these insightful, only somewhat travel-related words as I am watch The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet (Nelson), a show that was on  American TV from 1952-1966. (It’s on retroTV and I’m seeing it at a friend’s home near Fairfax/Hollywood in Los Angeles.) Those of us who travel have often done without telephones and technology, thus re-learning how great it is to have a cell phone. But for those living a daily life in “developed” areas, lest we forget the convenience cell phones have brought to our lives, The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet is a great reminder.
