Yesterday I got a text message that was a picture of a really pretty rose, but it was from a number I didn't recognize.
Then, a few seconds later, I got another text from the same number, but instead of it being a text, it was a song. I have no idea what song it is. It's some R&B love song that I have never heard. So, I tried calling the number the texts came from, and of course, got no answer. There was a voice mail, but it was that canned message that comes with the phone. So, I called Kyle and had him take down the number and call from a land line. He called back and said some old lady answered and said how sorry she was, that she was not some stalker, that she was trying to send texts from her old phone to her new phone or something like that. BUT she kept saying her old # ended in 7308 (my number ends in 7408), so that didn't make sense. If she was sending it FROM her old phone to her new phone, then it should not matter what her old # ends with. Plus, if you look at a keypad, the 3 and the 4 are not even close to each other, so how do you misdial that? I could see pushing 6 instead of 3, but 4? I don't think so. She was mixed up or lying.
So hours went by and I didn't get any more texts.
Then last night, Emily tells me my phone is ringing. It's another text from that SAME number. This time, it's a picture of a woman holding a rose to her chest and there is a tear running down her face. I sent a text message back saying, "Why do you keep sending me this stuff?" Of course, no response. WTF?

Oh weird!! I used to get a ton of weird ones and then one they just stopped. Of course, the ones I got were more porn orientated and I was just afraid to answer my phone!

And why is some older lady sending pics of women?

We still, after almost four years of the same phone number, get calls for whoever had our number before us.

Wendy, the porn might send me over the edge! I am so glad it hasn't gotten to the point, and I hope it doesn't!
I have had this number for 8 years and have had only a few wrong numbers, so that is why this is so weird.

That's a weird one. More like a scary one too, with all the roses and pictures.
