Maybe someday they'll invent a phone that stays in one place so it won't get lost. It won't drop calls or need to be charged at the most inconvenient time. Oh, wait! I think they did that already - half a century ago. Do you like our rotary phone? We've had it forever, and when someone asks to use our phone (because their cell phone is dead) they say, "How does it work?" Sometimes you just don't have time to bake your own cookies. Fig bars (we used to call them fig newtons) with a square of chocolate make a dandy substitute.

Mmmm, yummy!

Unfortunately this is not a low calorie treat. Each fig bar has 60 calories, as does each square of chocolate. Yikes - they add up fast.

This is for a young man at work for graduation. I tried to make it look masculine.

Wishing you a happy weekend.

Hello Diana, I love your snack. We call figs bars, fruit slice biscuits here.

Ah those phones, that is something I really wish I had. I love showing things like that to the kids.

Ladydi, one of our phones is still a rotary one too. We had a different one at that outlet but it kept giving us trouble, so I went and dug the old rotary one out of the attic and hooked it back up. It's been working fine ever since! HA! Sometimes the older things really are better. :)

Happy Sunday to you!
