Where old phones go and ring in harmony.

Look closely, even their legs are hand sets, not to mention that evil untangleable cord!

Funny.

I grew up in a home that had one phone, and it actually had a dial. As I got into my teens my mother brought a second phone home from her work which I promptly wired up for use in my bedroom so I could talk with my girlfriends. Also a dial phone. That was a huge deal to have a phone not in the kitchen.

How long ago? Thirty five years. My, how things have shifted. Our little camp in Michigan had one phone on the bar between the kitchen and the dining room. It was on a party line. Remember party lines? We were one ring, the neighbors two and three. Busy bodies had a field day! Hee hee.

I had a girlfriend in high school that was on a party line. Her neighbor listened in on us one night and next day neatly informed gf's dad that we were boinking. The man was a mental case and he collected guns. Needless to say the relationship ended abruptly.

Oh my, to get caught by the nosy neighbor about boinking your girlfriend!;) That could put a crink in matters. We learned, on a party line, not to put too much personal out on the airwaves. I'll bet you are still phone shy after that! I think it was Twain who said a cat will sit on a hot stove lid once, and never on a cold one after.
