#286: Long Distance 9 to 5

I can't believe that it took me a whole year of retirement to figure out I can now place overseas phone calls at my convenience.

Of course, I still have to do the phone math.

For example, I recently called a friend who is visiting New Zealand, but first I had to take into account the substantial time difference: Kiwis are 8 hours behind us, tomorrow.   So at 4:00 pm on Thursday afternoon, with a cup of tea in hand, I was able to call my friend in Auckland just as she was enjoying a Friday morning, breakfast cup of coffee.

And since no one was rushing off to work, we has a lovely, long conversation.
