    Yes, I opened the last door, heard a rip and the door tipped about 8 inches forward before I caught it. If I had not held it up all five doors were attached and the tape had given way all the way down the whole length. Only one layer of duct tape was holding the set of five glass doors to the wall. After lunch we are going back up to buy our window shades at Lowes and then a stop at the store with the door issue. I am going to photograph it.

    Old stuff is not necessarily simpler.

    The Ellen Show has hilarious bits with millennials trying to figure out old stuff like

    1) how to use a rotary phone

    . 2) how to re fold a large map

    3) how to use a manual typewriter

    the rotary phone segment is a scream! They have no idea they are supposed to pick up the ear piece before dialing. She didnt know how to make the numbers work

    We were never early adopters of the latest technology. Back in 1990, we still had a rotary dial wall phone--everyone else had push buttons. One of my son's friends came in and asked if he could use the phone to call his mother and I told him the phone was in the kitchen. I heard nothing but silence, and a few minutes later he came back out of the kitchen and headed for the door.

    "Did you call your mother?" I asked him, because he clearly didn't speak with anyone that I could hear. He said "No. I couldn't figure out how to use your phone." That was back in 1990!!
