The New "Old-Fashioned Way"?

By
Real Estate Agent

Ok, I'll admit it...I was dragged kicking and screaming into the world wide web 10 years ago. But I still called 411 to get phone numbers and looked up addresses in that big, white, now-almost-obsolete book that sits in the living room, under the telephone. Yes, I also still have a phone that PLUGS IN to the wall. Imagine that!!

                                                

 

 

So I had to chuckle this morning when I asked my husband, "What are your plans for today?"

Hubby: "I'm going to plot a route to some estate and moving sales." His hobby is "sale-ing".

Me: "Would you like to borrow my GPS? I'm showing houses, but I won't need it today."

"No thanks, I'll do it the old-fashioned way."

"Mapquest, right?"

 "Yep!"  : )

I still like to use maps, especially to see the "big" picture of a region without having to put on my reading glasses...

I would do just what your husband does.   I like seeing it on paper when I am driving from one location to another. 

Call me old fashon.

Jennifer ~ I didn't know you'd gotten one! But yeah, isn't it great! My daughter downloaded a different voice for hers - he's British. I might try that!

Kathryn ~ That's exactly what I did yesterday. Not so much because of the vision (I can't see far away, upclose is ok), but to see what was around the area and to get a better idea of where I was going after point A.

Tim ~ Ok, you're old fashioned.  ; )

Sue,

Too cute.  Your husband is one of a kind.  One that needs directions!

Hi Brenda ~ It's funny, because he's cool with getting directions BEFORE HE LEAVES THE HOUSE. But to stop and ASK??? In 8 years, I have never seen it happen. lol
