An employee of the telephone company

Mark had several different ideas of what he wanted to be when he grew up. I though it would be fun to name some of these.

Mark is very interested in new innovations. It would be great if he can get in on this new-fangled start-up. Of course, pa doesn't think telephones will last.

I wonder what Mark would think of all the technology today? Can't you see him riding his horse and texting? :grinning-cowboy:

I am sure Mark thought of the technology before anybody else did and pa just shook his head...

Mark: pa, remember when Mr. Goss took my picture?

Lucas: sure, son.

Mark: I bet someday that cameras will be a lot smaller and everyone will have one.

Lucas: that's just silly, boy.

Mark: not only that, but in about 20 years people will pay to see people move in pictures, kind of like the vaudeville show in Santa fe. The one I want to go see with the fellows at school...

Lucas: I am not spending good money for you to take a train and go see a silly show with girls dressed like girls in a saloon!

Mark: so I can go to the saloon here? (Moves out of pan's reach) not only that, but about 40 years from now, there will be a box where you can listen to news , music, and stories. Soon afterwards, people will talk and move in the pictures.

Lucas: you have been in the sun too long.

Mark: about 60 years from now, you can have a box where you watch stories and hear people move and talk.

Lucas: Mark, have you been smoking loco weed?

Mark: then folks will have a flat rectangle thing, where they can send their own telegrams, call people, take pictures, play poker and checkers, and even watch and write about us all the time.

Lucas: that is the most foolish thing I ever heard! Why would anyone in their right mind be interested in us?

Mark: I guess you're right, pa. But don't blame me because cash is always our short crop!

Thank you, guys!

Lucas: Mark, what do you have and what are you doing with that thing?

Mark: nothing. (Said defensively, much like he said " nothing" in three legged terror and death trap)
