That would be me.

I can even remember the phone numbers of both sets of my grandparents. I kind of miss the days when phone numbers started with letters. Is there a specific term for those lettered prefixes? IDK. The starting letters for my grandparents' numbers were MO, which stood for Mohawk. My childhood home number started with SK for Skyline.

I kept an old, pink rotary dial phone for years, but finally sold it at a garage sale about 10 years ago. My youngest daughter has an old turquoise rotary dial phone.

Since you guys are so ancient, your numbers were only four digits.  That isn't that hard to remember.   rofl

I forgot about him! Where'd he go? He could get hateful at times, but seemed to have a nice side, too.

We might have chased him off. It got pretty heated back in the first DT run. But I vaguely remember him saying he was moving and would not have internet? But I dont remember why he was moving or maybe I have him confused with crowcamp?

We were too poor to have a phone! And we were not alone, at least on the side of the tracks where we lived.

OK, RB has me beat on coming from a poor family. We were poor, but we had a phone.

A good friend of mine had a party-line at their house. IDK why, but that thing was intimidating to me.

I had a friend with  party line also. But I never called it, I had to wait for them to call me.... and back then we had about 2 minutes of talk then were done.

IF the neighbors had any left over! I DO REMEMBER waiting for our neighbors to finish eating so we could, NOT often but do remember a time or two.
