Introducing Social Media


Well hello!




Now, at the bottom of each post, are social media buttons!

You can email a post to somebody. Or put it on Facebook. Or Pinterest. Or even to other buttons of which I have no idea of.

So, I am hip now! But only a bit.

    I miss the tin can and string system. Or the actually answering the phone attached to the wall and everyone could hear what you were talking about. Or party lines. Or having to ask an operator to get an outside overseas line – and then setting the timer to 3 minutes once you were connected (sometimes it took a half hour to get a line), so you wouldn’t go over the allotted time.

    Or….my grandma throwing yet another tin can at grandpa’s workshop door to let him know it was tea time. She had a stack of 5 at the stop of the stairs, he’d gather them up when he came in, for her to throw again when the time came.

    Sometimes the old ways were the good ways.

    Congrats on embracing today’s new technology, but I won’t be pushing any buttons. lol

    Huh!! Speak English not tech!! I can barely get to your post as is. Seriously, the house is looking great. It’s lucky to have you as her Steward.

    When I saw the title I hoped you were starting an Instagram about the Cross house, or a FB page.

    My parents live in a two-story house. They used to keep an old bicycle horn at the bottom of the stairway, and that was their “intercom” when they need call someone from upstairs.

    Wooo hooo! I belong to an FB group called Our Old House. Questions have often arisen
    about things I know you’ve posted here. All I could do was direct ppl to the blog….
    Now I’ll be able to share the specific posts when needed! Thanks!
