What a fabulous post!!! I laughed out loud at parts of it.

Like you, I managed a group of people years ago, if not as many as you, and we did fine without the phone/laptop gadgets.

We have an ancient Tracfone we try to keep charged by simply not using it, or even leaving it on, except when we need to call one of the kids, or when we expect them to call us. It's just for emergencies. (Even that came with a big book describing all its features, but I just keep the names and numbers on there we MAY choose to call. No texting or whatever.)

My wife and I think one of the reasons so many couples seem to have trouble with each other and with their other relationships these days is that they're all tied up with "gadgets" and are forgetting how to communicate without those.

And the kids? I worry about where they may be headed...

Good post.
