Funny What You Discover While Waiting...
This morning I had a marathon conversation fix-it hour and a half session with Carbonite. That’s a story for another day but I do recommend them.
The technician had to take control of my laptop so there I sat. Since I am not one to just sit, I reached in a drawer and found my old daytimer/Filofax.
They were what the Smart Phone is to us now. Our whole world was in that small notebook. Paper, dividers, and a pen.
It had all of our contacts including their birthdays and other pertinent information about them. It also held our calendar...month to month, daily, or week-at-a-glance.
Lose this and you were dead in the water. The only way to back it up was to sit at a copier and make of copy of each page. Now we have external hard drives and cloud backup.
I took a look at my list of contacts and came across names I didn’t know or remember and some no longer with us.
One section was a list of books I wanted to read. Now all I have to do is put them on my wish list on Amazon.
There was another section that held small maps of various cities as well as a road map of the United States. Now I have Google Maps.
While I dearly love my iPhone and Google Docs, I kind of miss holding my trusty notebook.
What about you? Did you have a Filofax or something similar? Do you still have it??
