Kit just received a used iPhone 8 released as recently as 2017. So, she’s only five tech years behind. As many of you know, we didn’t even have a cellphone until fall of 2019.
I now have Kit’s Samsung phone without a sim card. But my used laptop has Windows 10. That’s nipping the heels of Windows 11. I’m also trying to become relevant as a writer to a younger generation. For that, I’ve been streaming recent movies and shows via Roku. Now I know why I have few readers between ages fifteen and fifty.
I wasn’t always so outdated. At one time, I was on the cutting edge. Then calculators started replacing slide rulers. I still have my slide ruler just in case they come back.
If you’re like me—and I know I am—staying current is an impossible task. Fortunately for Kit and me, springtime is budding out in Washington. We’ve started working in our garden. That mostly involves a shovel, wheelbarrow, and rake. I’m 100% up to date on those.
