Lilly : When you are out late, do you worry you've left the heating on or anything ?
Ronnie : No. I can control my entire home by cell-phone, Lilly.
Lilly : Ronnie, the last contact you got on that old phone was with a guy on Soyuz 16 !

@Stephen: That'll be in my head all day, now ! (Ronnie)
I see you have intentions to stay up-to-date, Ronnie .......... time for a Samsung Galaxy ;-))
1 Apr 2013 6:13am
@Ellebelle: . . one day, one day . . . (Retro-Ronnie)
nice happy shot
1 Apr 2013 6:33am
Very nice with this framing
1 Apr 2013 8:16am
Comme dans un film de police sueprbe captage et compo.
1 Apr 2013 8:57am
Great and funny shot, You have this nicely done.
1 Apr 2013 8:58am
Super bien fait!!!! J'aime+++++
I hadn't realised that peat fires were so controllable Ronnie, or have you moved to that new material called coal !
1 Apr 2013 8:59am
@Doug: I leave all that technical stuff to Arlo - guaranteed to come home to warmth ! (Ronnie)
Excellent, trop drôle et trop génial. Bonne journée.
1 Apr 2013 9:07am
Another great, funny composition :)
1 Apr 2013 9:31am
That's a 'smart' phone
Tellin' you 'go home'
Those girls look ready to rumble
You don't want to take a tumble
Beat the retreat
Get home to the heat
1 Apr 2013 9:41am
You'll have to buy yourself a phone last generation. I think this time Lilly is right ...!
Thanks you very much! another funny framing!
1 Apr 2013 9:48am
I need a phone that can make sure I turned off the stove!
1 Apr 2013 10:25am
@Anita: Ah, yes, and the lights, the PC, the taps, locked the back door . . . (Ronnie)
Das ist eine gute Sache wenn man auf dem Weg nach Hause schon die Kaffeemaschine einschalten kann.
1 Apr 2013 10:33am
@Heinz: Ja, nicht sicher, warum sie betonen die 'abschalten' Teil! / Yes, not sure why they emphasize the 'turn off' part ! (Ronnie)
très drôle pour ce premier avril..j'adore!!!
1 Apr 2013 10:42am
Very pretty box
I enjoyed your photos
1 Apr 2013 10:46am
No signal? Well, you must check everything before you leave home, in such case you should nor worry that the cell phone company is playing tricks...at times!
1 Apr 2013 11:20am
Very funny composition again Ronnie !
Very funny !!! still at the top of technology !
1 Apr 2013 11:25am
AH yes, like my cell phone...always a technical problem.. can't get the rotary dial to work on it....But this is nice, Ronnie, catching the children at play with reckless abandon at 2:00 AM , not a care in the world,,,does a heart good to see :-)
1 Apr 2013 12:27pm
I thought you used your phone for calling?
1 Apr 2013 12:42pm
As soon as you buy the new gadget "à la mode", there's a new one, with more options, appearing on the market!!! Loyalty is not a concept adapted to our consumerism era, I guess...Hope it's not the same about human relationships?!?
1 Apr 2013 1:39pm
@Denise: Yes, the speed of techno-change has never been greater . . frightening at times. (Ronnie)
Those kids would 'die laughing' if you let them see your phone, Ronnie. ;D
1 Apr 2013 2:47pm
@Judy aka L@dybug: Shortly before I died of shame, I imagine . . smiles . . (Retro-Ronnie)
Well, at least you made the upgrade from ham radio !
1 Apr 2013 2:52pm
Sometimes I wish I had my old brick! Good one.
1 Apr 2013 3:04pm
@don: I think they referred to this one here as a 'Mars Bar', Don ! (Ronnie)
I think, you may need up-date your cell phone...:-)
1 Apr 2013 3:06pm
@Lena: "Hello, hello . . is that Commander Filipchenko ? . . "
Good composition. Well done
1 Apr 2013 4:38pm
two things come to mind here ... ronnie's cell phone belongs in a museum of the late 20th century, and the girls on the left probably never worry about the outside temperatures at all !!! ;-)
1 Apr 2013 5:33pm
@franz: If you think I'll reveal knowing what the girls on the left worry about, Franz . . (Ronnie)
So hiding late at night in places with no coverage.
1 Apr 2013 6:03pm
Houston, we have a problem! Well done Ronnie! ;-)))
1 Apr 2013 6:15pm
guess that it's time to upgrade
1 Apr 2013 6:45pm
Yeah!! That would be right!! All the wonderful technology is not that reliable.
1 Apr 2013 6:49pm
@kiwisa: A victim of the advance of technology. (R)
The new time is quick but you have to go with Ronny.
I never dreamed with an iPhone (even smaller than a pack of cigarettes) contact with the world to have.
That was unthinkable and I never really never believed.
Good shot and a nice story.
1 Apr 2013 7:46pm
@Aly: Yes, that phone was released in 1993 . . Bill Clinton was President ! (Ronnie)
J'apprécie la rime visuelle entre la pleine lune et la lumière du réverbère!
Pour le reste, j'ai du mal à suivre car je n'ai jamais eu de téléphone portable (je résiste)!
Bonne fin de journée!
1 Apr 2013 8:50pm
I doubt any of those people are worried about their heating at home. :-) Well-blended composition that works beautifully here.
1 Apr 2013 9:00pm
LOL! You just have to love technology. Nowadays you can do anything via your mobile, but when there's no signal..... oh well....
Ronnie, at least your home will be nice and warm when you return :)
1 Apr 2013 9:18pm
@Anina Botes: Yes, I can be sure of a warm home - I left Arlo in charge ! (Ronnie)
Nice mission ♥
1 Apr 2013 9:54pm
Oh my word! You are brave leaving Arlo in charge. Rather leave the heat on, otherwise Arlo may try out the fireplace...
1 Apr 2013 10:20pm
When life was definitely less complicated! All you need is to call Arlo to get the bonfire roaring. No problem!
2 Apr 2013 12:10am
@Elaine Hancock: . . yes, I see a welcoming glow over homeward now you mention it . . . (Ronnie)
Haha I love the humor here and the technology era you show so well ;))...eeeh no signal equals catastrophe, too much reliance on gadgets and the like...
2 Apr 2013 1:27am
@Abena: It becomes another hold over us all. In times of strife, governments cut the signals, Abena . . (Ronnie Revolting)
That's just fantastic. : )! Ha. Figures. Oh well. Remember when .... there were no cell phones at all.
Not such a bad time.
2 Apr 2013 2:58am
@Becky: Yes . . folks sat quietly on trains and read silent newspapers . . happy days. (Ronnie)
Maybe it's time to revert back to smoke signals.....oh, but it's late at night. Do carrier pigeons flight at night?
2 Apr 2013 4:11am
NO SIGNAL.. this is what I would want to see always on my cell.. Mobiles are now too much to handle.. calls, updates, messages, tweets.
2 Apr 2013 11:05am
Mobile was then sometimes a good alibi. Then you can say that it was not the field, and the phone did not work. Now, no one believes in it.
2 Apr 2013 1:19pm
Wishful thinking Ronnie :)
2 Apr 2013 1:47pm
If the cell phone has no signal, then it's no good.
2 Apr 2013 3:48pm
If that is your mobile phone I suggest you change it to a new model...
2 Apr 2013 5:08pm
Ronnie, time for an iphone! You can simplify your life in so many ways. I even have a doggie squeak toy on mine. It drives my grand dog crazy! That model you have may be simple but it lacks much.
2 Apr 2013 5:18pm
2 Apr 2013 5:57pm
You can talk to spaceships on that thing? Don't ever get rid of that, Ronnie. It's priceless.
2 Apr 2013 8:29pm
2 Apr 2013 8:35pm
Maybe its time to enter the App Store Ronnie, do not be afraid, you will find apps to navigate the ocean or cook an Italian meal ... you will become an expert at everything....and best of all Angry Birds are waiting.
@Kate: Thanks for the warning, Kate. I'll stay indoors. (Ronnie)
where did the good old days go?
and our carrier pigeon?
2 Apr 2013 8:48pm
An interesting night scene!
3 Apr 2013 5:14am
Don't really think the heating is on the mind of those youngsters, they couldn't care less :) Great phone by the way, would be ideal for my husband so he can't mess up anything.
3 Apr 2013 5:23am
@Monique: Yes, that phone is certainly foolproof !
3 Apr 2013 6:09am
hihi...comme le temps passe...! ;-)))
3 Apr 2013 6:57am
@Monik: . . si vite . .
special and funny shot, You make this great done.
3 Apr 2013 8:15am
@roy: Thanks, Roy - we had fun with this one ! (L&R)
ta composition est très drôle ! je te souhaite une agréable journée
3 Apr 2013 8:43am
You just need to change the valves and relays on that phone and it will work great
3 Apr 2013 11:33am
@CElliottUK: Either that or take up the offer from the Museum, I suppose. (Ronnie)
We have a similar remote control - we just phone the mother-in-law and ask her to pop in and check. She lives a two minute walk away.
3 Apr 2013 11:43am
U think you should preserve it so that your rand kids will display the same as antique, with a note " Thus Spake My Grandpa."
3 Apr 2013 12:19pm
So ... It is you who nicked my remote control I'm looking for in 1985?
3 Apr 2013 1:22pm
- Houston, we've had a problem here
- Turn off all !!!
- Ok !
-Hello? Hello? Oh ... we have a problem
3 Apr 2013 2:27pm
:-) May be you have to change your phone Ronnie and after you'll can do what you want with it !! Well, that's what they want to persuade us so that we buy a more recent one but often the applications are pointless...
3 Apr 2013 6:11pm
i love Lilly's answer about Soyouz !
and I love Ronnie's phone ! It seems so useful !
3 Apr 2013 8:05pm
Hiring an old Russian astronaut to house-sit for you is not really the same thing Ronnie...
3 Apr 2013 10:24pm
@Daryl Johnson: ha ha . . a neat new slant on it it - thanks, Daryl ! (Ronnie)
Did you check the wire to the tin can?
4 Apr 2013 12:31am
ha ha.. may be something to do with the mobile itself, looks a bit old :)
4 Apr 2013 10:54am
@Sarito: Not that old, Sarito - cannot be much more than 20 years since I bought it new. (Ronnie)
5 Apr 2013 5:19am
we're laughing at those old phones but just 15 years ago they were like magic...
things have sped up a bit, i suppose
7 Apr 2013 10:32am
Technology on your fingertips!
Lilly - Ronnie's phone is retro, too?!!! :) :) :)
7 Apr 2013 5:45pm
It would be great to have a cell phone do all that! ;) First, I need to get a cell phone!
