YUCAIPA, CA – A couple of days ago I was driving on the freeway with my grandson Cameron and he asked me, grandpa what did you do when your car broke down before cell phones?
Well, I had to walk to the nearest phone booth or house and call AAA or a friend to come help me if I couldn’t fix the problem myself. It usually took awhile, I said.
Cam’s question got me thinking about how we communicated back in the “old world” days before modern technology such as the cell phone and texting, Iphone, Ipad, Internet, Facebook, Tweeting and Twittering, and all other faster-than-a millisecond technology blazed into our lives.
In the 1970s I began subscribing to a monthly magazine called The Fastpitch Softball News Bulletin, published by Ray Anderson (inducted into the International Softball Congress (ISC) Hall of Fame in 1993).
