Hi. You’ve reached Keri Ford.

I’m not home right now, but leave me a message and I’ll get back to you as soon as possible. 

Who here still has an answering machine?

*raises hand*

Truth be told, I still have a land line. hazard of living in the sticks. The cell service is horrible so land lines are a must. And the last phone I bought, an answering machine came on it. So–that’s why we have one of those. It is a digital thing, so I don’t have to rewind a tape or flip it over.

And yes, I am old enough to remember flipping the tape in an answering machine.

This topic came to me because I really am not here today. I’ll be out of town all day. If I can access on my phone, I’ll give that whirl, but I’ll be traveling some roads with some sketchy cell service there too.

So leave me a message and I’ll get back to you! Do you have an answering machine or have you transferred over to that newfangled voicemail thingy?
