You Know You're Living in the Year 2004 when...

1. Your reason for not staying in touch with family
is because they do
not have e-mail.

2. You have a list of 15 phone numbers to reach
your family of three.

3. Your grandmother asks you to send her a JPEG
file of your newborn so
she can create a screen saver.

4. You pull up in your own driveway and use your
cell phone to see if
anyone is home.

5. Every commercial on television has a web site
address at the bottom
of the screen.

6. You buy a computer and 3 months later it's out
of date and sells for
half the price you paid.

7. Leaving the house without your cell phone, which
you didn't have the
first 20 or 30 (or 60) years of your life, is now a
cause for panic and
you turn around to go get it.

8. Using real money, instead of credit or debit, to
make a purchase
would be a hassle and take planning.

9. You just tried to enter your password on the

10. You consider second-day air delivery painfully

11. Your dining room table is now your flat filing

12. Your idea of being organized is
multiple-colored Post-it notes.

13. You hear most of your jokes via e-mail instead
of in person.

14. You get an extra phone line so you can get
phone calls.

15. You disconnect from the Internet and get this
awful feeling, as if
you just pulled the plug on a loved one.

16. You get up in the morning and go online before
getting your coffee.

17. You wake up at 2 AM to go to the bathroom and
check your E-mail on
your way back to bed.

18. You start tilting your head sideways to smile.
; )

19. You're reading this and nodding and laughing.

20. Even worse; you know exactly who you are going
to forward this

You try entering your pinn number on the microwave, telephone.
You try entering your password on your ATM.

I found 2/3 awfully true. LOL...

Has anyone suggested you harbor a mean-streek? LOL

We have (outfitters) canoe rental places up here and they list 3 unnecessary items that are scaring canoeists - No TVs, No Boomboxes and No Cellphones. Even though they intend and paid to get away, they just don't understand that the wildlife doesn't need that crap and won't stick around for pictures that way. Course to them, wildlife is 2 words. I'm so glad i'm not raising other peoples kids anymore. :)

Oh i wanted to mention too - we live on an old stage road and 100 years ago, one came thru every couple of days. There was a station on our place, and lotsa old horseshoes, bottles etc have been dug up. The stage started out from Fargo, got here in about 5 days and exchanged mail, then forded the river and tried to make Staples cross-country that nite. It took 2 weeks to arrive in Duluth, then they'd start returning. So it took about a month to order an item by mail. :)

ya left out the part about all the male/female enhancement ads. If I could get garden stuff to grow as much as they claim they can make parts grow I would have 100 lb watermelons and squash 6 ft. long. Think I'll put some of that stuff on my bank account, see if it will grow.:^)

Maybe you should try some of that in the garden. You might end up with very large produce. Then again might be too hard to be good!;^) Yeeeooowww!
