No, it's actually off and on the charger in my kitchen until Tuesday.

If there's an urgency, a select few have my bride's cell # and even fewer our home land-line #. But, no client access to me until Tuesday. I take true days off.

Yes, it's either in my pocket or my purse, while Roger clips his on his belt - so we both are very 'tied' to our Smartphones Nathan Gesner.  Between texts, e-mails, calls, the calendar, my real estate app, and my Fitbit, it's got it all.  At home it can be anywhere from on the kitchen counter, to the desk in my office, to the nightstand in the bedroom - HA!
