I have combined a couple of memes here today. The obvious one being Mosaic Monday hosted by Mary @ Little Red House. Not so obvious is that this is also for Metamorphosis Monday hosted by Susan @ Between Naps on the Porch.
In an email earlier today I was discussing a previous post and that our newspapers used to come in the afternoons after school was out so the kids could deliver them. Now they are dropped off by an adult, driving a car, at about 3 in the morning. It reminded me of other changes that have gone through the years.
My youngest son who is almost 23 years old now was in a vehicle once with manual roll down windows. He had never seen them before and didn't know how to put down the window. We were amazed. It never occurred to us that in his lifetime he had only seen power windows.
Our other son is almost 27. He was fascinated by the fact that our old vinyl records had music on both sides of them unlike the cds of his generation with all the music on the one side.
Not only do our phones travel with us now they are also capable of doing things that our computers do too.
As for the last metamorphosis in the mosaic...well some earlier versions work a little better than the new ones do.
