LOL! That sounds like a pretty clever comment to me.

Roger still has that old Razr too! It used to be mine. My son has changed the glass faces of iphones and ipads! He orders the part, takes the thing apart and fixes it. His wife and kids go through alot of cell phones!

Our phones don't do anything other than make phone calls; we don't even text. Guess that must make us pre-date the dinosaurs...;-)

Texting, what's that???

A couple of flashers showing off this morning for the ladies. These two were in a group of three toms performing for a dozen hens. Apparently the hens were not impressed because they walked away over the hill and went on foraging.

They seem to be getting an early start of it this year because of the warm weather no wonder the girls were uninterested.

I have to wonder, if Jeff weren't deaf, would I text? Would I be "anti-text"?

Great capture, linrose! Not only did you get to witness it, but you got a photo to share with us.

I've seen male turkeys displaying for females before...but I've always seen them at a distance or side of the road while I'm driving. I've seen them from the front or side...interesting view you got.

Nice shot of the TOMS!
I don't have a cell phone. I didn't even own a land line until the hubby moved on in to my life many eons ago. I really hadn't the need for one!
Back then people stopped by and actually "visited" one another, face to face. If I had to use a phone, I'd run across the street and drop a dime into the payphone to make a call. A whole dime!

We use the cell phones to find each other in the big stores. Haven't had a land line in years!
