  2. This clever ditty about portals and immortals, filled me with gleeful chortles.

    Sorry, it's almost 3 a.m. here, and I couldn't think of anything else that rhymed with immortals. Where is Pat Hatt when you need him? This was fun, Dixie!

    1. Chortles is fine.
      Worked for my mind.
      What is Pat?
      Feeding the cat?

      Julie, thanks, you're so funny!

    1. A jack is a portal/ connection between a telephone, and the wall where the telephone service enters the house. Now we have lots of jacks/connections for computers, printers, scanners, that feed the power into the device being used.

  4. Hi, Dixie....we have an old intercom system in our house that has an 8-track tape deck in it! Not sure where one would find a tape like that now. And we have telephone jacks even one in a bathroom, but no house phone.

    1. Some flea markets might have tapes, but how do you if it works?

      I've got jacks everywhere. Thank goodness they're next to the floor.

    1. Thanks Chrys. It really does seem that way. No wall power - the characters get lost, forgotten, or.... shudder, shudder, killed!

      Or have they been transported to another.....???

  10. Did you know chortles was a word invented by Lewis Carroll? It first appears in the Jabberwocky. "He chortled in his joy".

    Never seen Jacks like those.

    1. Jo, I did not know Lewis Carroll invented the word, or that it had been around this long. Thank you.

      These jacks furnish many pieces of equipment with power from a single source.

  15. No longer is the day for a phone jack in our house. We switched to VOiP about 10 years ago. One day our grandkids or great-grandkids are going to ask us what a "jack" is. lol
