Giving up social media

The other day I did a search for "how did the pioneers live without social media?" and Google really didn't give me a lot of help.

And then I researched "pioneer life" and learned those poor souls who traveled west young man really did quite well without social media.

During a five to six-month journey, they did a lot of walking, played games, ate whatever they had or could kill, talked, walked, played games, ate whatever they had or could kill, traded with the Indians who didn't kill them, took care of the sick, buried the dead, walked, talked, played games, ate whatever they had or could kill ...

... and never took ONE selfie!

SEE?

LOTS of things to do out on the prairie: seeing the country, meeting new friends, going new places.

ALL WITHOUT TWITTER, FACEBOOK, INSTAGRAM, PINTEREST, TUMBLR, etc., etc.

I could give up using social media with a snap...

... but Lyle Lovett follows me on Twitter and I don't want to let him down.
