I recently changed the song I use for the standard ringtone of my phone. I’m not quite sure why since all of my frequent contacts have custom ringtones and I almost never answer unknown callers. It just seemed like something I should do for the summer. We’ve had mobile phones for so long I’ve almost forgotten what the days of a single mechanical or electronic ring were like.

I finally got around to ordering the update for the navigation system in our SUV. It’s a good thing to do prior to the start of a busy summer travel season.
