We use to communicate through “telephone operators” and had to drive to each other’s home to keep in touch. No more dropping coins on the expressway to find out what's happening at the beach or to have what we now call "face time" with friends!
Today we rely on our cell phones to keep us in touch with family and friends...but, remember...no texting while driving, pull over to talk. Be safe!!
