Cranks My Tractor

We live in a time where we are always learning about new ways to do things and new technologies that supposedly make life easier.  To be honest, I sometimes have a hard time operating a cell phone and I’m supposed to be some sort of scientist.  It’s just that things often move so fast that we can’t keep up.

Having teenagers in the house is a nice way to learn how to operate your cell phone or about how to fix your computer.

I’m still needed though.  It’s a nice feeling.  I gave one of children a yoyo for Christmas and I had to show them how to operate it.  I’m not kidding.

It seems like some things move so fast that we take for granted the things that we already had that we didn’t even use.  Perhaps we didn’t “need” them.

Think about the stuff in the back of the kitchen cabinets and hidden in the pantry, attic or garage – I bet you have things that you are “saving” to use later.

What about a word?

We all run across words that we either have never heard of or think we would never use.
