Illustration Friday: Prehistoric


With the speed at which technology is changing, it makes the older people in our society seem prehistoric somehow. My grandmother and cell phones? Well....

  9. I agree it is a little bit sad we somehow force old people to use all these new gadgets. On the other hand, a lot of them really enjoy new ways to communicate. Your old man looks tired as well as eager to learn. Just how it so often feels when you assist old people getting handy with their new cell phone.
