Late Adopters

Now that the last of our cordless phones for our landline has died, we are shopping for a corded all-in-one phone/answering machine, since the main problem with the cordless phones was that the kids would get on the phone for hours and the handsets would get lost.

We’ve functioned just fine with this thrift store find for months, but it’s incompatible with the old system, which had the answering machine built in.


The primary units on the market have huge buttons and large font displays. Mr. Caffeinated calls them antiques. It’s obvious that they are targeted at the retiree market.

I believe this purchase places us squarely in the “Late Adopter” customer category.

I am a farm-raised homeschooling mom. I take great joy in making nutritious food that inspires people to take seconds. Thirds, anyone? We are a God-fearing, Christ worshiping family that enjoys good friends and good eats. If the kitchen is clean and the living room carpet is visible, then that's a nice bonus.
