I've been living in The City on the Water since September and today, I cut the final tie I had to the 'burg.
Today, when I went to renew my cell phone contract, I ditched my number from the 'burg in favor of a local number. At first glance, the number may not seem all that different, after all, it's still the same area code. But no longer is it a phone number tied to the farm fields of Dodge County.
And of course I got a spiffy new phone. I took my time and browsed the selection, finally deciding on this. It's a similar style to the one I had and the Verizon folks tell me lots of folks are happy with it. So we'll see.
