Texting and Phone Calls

I realize that in this day of texting and smart phones I am an old dinosaur because I don't text nor do I have a cell phone, smart phone, ereader, tablet, ipad ect...

I have a laptop and a landline phone. That's it as far as techy devices go in my home.

Has the art of the phone call become extinct?

Not for me. I talk to my younger brother one the phone at least once a day and if I don't talk to my daughter on the computer we talk on the phone at least once a week. My dad doesn't have a computer so we talk on the phone. But everyone else I know..they want to text, send emails or fb.

For the vast majority of todays youth, they would much rather send a text than pick up the phone and make a phone call.

I used to talk to my mom on the phone all the time before she passed away. I could spend an hour on the phone with her and I miss that. An email or text just isn't the same as hearing someone's voice on the phone.
