Poetry, creative writing and a desire to inspire….. Hebrews 11:1 – Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.

Press Zero For The Operator 


I used to hear stories about this contraption 

How people used it to communicate 

I heard it was a lot faster than carrier pigeon (just slightly more expensive)

Now I find myself in a conundrum 

Running late for a date (the all important first date)

My cell phone is dead 🙄

There is no instruction manual for this ancient artifact 

Usually a red phone is for emergency 

I wonder why the people at the museum are staring at me staring at this thing

Does anyone have any change?

Or better yet, does anyone have a carrier pigeon on them?

It’s the all important first date!!!

  1. Oh imagine this is how many youngsters feel about what was modern tech for us lol📞☏☎

  2. Haha! I am still surprised how many of those phone boxes are still around! But you know what? The tricky thing is not how to handle it but to know the phone number you need to reach…. been there… lol 😂

  3. Awe I love this! That’s an important time for sure! Great post Syl! 🙂

  4. Ha, ha! Times they are a changing!

  5. We are so reliant on our devices Syl. I do remember when there was a phone on the wall in our kitchen, a typewriter, even a wood burning stove in my grandparents farmhouse. The tech revolution has left us attached at the hip to to our cell phone! lol! Have a great evening.
