The Price You Pay for the Life You Lead

My friend Deb, after reading all the whining I did about having to watch the football game in Spanish, wrote me this...

"It's a small price to pay for the life you are living!! Imagine cruising in the "olden days" (and that's not really too very long ago; only 15 years ago.....) No internet, no email, no cable TV, no cell phones."

"You remember--awaiting a mail delivery at some remote outpost; receiving (or not) letters from friends and family. And standing in line in a government phone facility paying $5 a minute for a bad phone connection to family back home. I think it is fantastic that you could see the Florida game!! (pretty nice for your team to have won, too.)"

Thanks, Deb, for the timely reminder about what we have.
