Wordless Wednesday

Yep, it still works if you know how to wire it up... and I do! The large family bible off to the side was given to my father by his sister (my aunt Betty) and her family, not long before he died. It is over 50 years old.

Happy Wordless Wednesday all!

oh cool! I think it's kind of sad that my kids will grow up not knowing what it's like to DIAL a phone. Like when you keep your finger in the dial and let it be pulled back home or other quirky things I did as a kid! :D

OMG! Can we say party lines. I talked to all my friends on one of these growing up and hoped the neighbors weren't listening!

Amor, I'm not using it today but I could if I wanted to. I keep it to display with some other older items I have.

The difference is that it's analog and we live in a digital world. You're limited by how far you move about with a cord and there are obviously no modern features available with it. No caller id, no call waiting, no call transfer, no conference calls... it's beginning to sound really good to me. Maybe I'll hook it back up! lol

I remember using those phones as a kid. However I have recurring dreams about not being able to dial the number I need on that kind.

cool shot.

We call that a crossbar phone. I haven't seen one in ages!

And that Bible is a treasure.

WOW -- that takes me back a bit!
It is funny to see them on the old TV shows or movies.
