My dad is scanning old pictures during his “spare time” while taking care of Mama right now. He recently sent me these two pictures. The first was one of our Williams Family Christmas last year.

From August 2012

The second was of a family Christmas when he was younger (that is him playing checkers).

From August 2012

His point was that everyone in the top picture (minus a little cousin) were on their phones and the people in the second picture were interacting with each other. In defense of those in the top picture, they were interacting with each other- they were playing a version of Scrabble against each other on their phones. šŸ™‚

My how times have changed…
