x-mas vacation...
i make a friend with my
new walkie-talkie

Link with 883: New toy.

[One year as a boy I got a walkie-talkie for Christmas. This was exactly what I had asked for. Boy, was I happy. I was even more thrilled a few days after Christmas when I was talking to my sister on it and another kid's voice came on. I got chatting with him and I found out he lived a couple of blocks away. We became best of friends.]

what a cool memory.
I'm jealous. I had to make my own with two soup cans and a string. Giggle.


A few years ago a kid in Milwaukie, OR had his new Walkie-talkie out and picked up a cell phone signal from two lost mountain climbers on Mt Hood and saved their lives.
I thought about that this last week when 3 mtn climbers didn't come back.

We got this new communication system at work, and the guys are playing with it like it's a toy. Some things never change, do they, Vaughn?:)

Does cotton string and tin cans count?? Love it Vaughn!!

Pamela: String and cans, eh? Actually, I had that too. That's why I asked for the walkie-talkies. Of course every kid now has a cell phone. :-)

Aurora: No they don't, I suppose.

Andrew: ...the greatest discoveries. Maybe we should work less? :-)

Tim: Thanks. Cheers to you for the new year!

Richard: Roger, over & out.

John: Thanks.

Tikkis: Yes, the ultimate walkie-talkie.

Polona: Thanks.

Pat: Of course! :-)
