FOWC with Fandango: Worthless

Look what I found in the cellar whilst going through old stuff. Yes, our telephone, the one with a dial where you actually had to use your hand and finger to dial a number. I decided to rescue it from its dark prison and I will probably clean it up a little and put it on my desk. I even have the leads to connect it, but the number is history, it no long exists with you mobile phones that we all have. I will keep this and one day show it to my granchild. It might be worthless now, but it was our link to the outside world in the days gone by, and then it definitely was not worthless. And the telephone number on the dial no longer exists, for at least 20 years, if not more, so do not try to call me.

    • We did not know anytjing else at the time. Buttons came later. I was a teenager at the time when I had to use them, and at that age you were proud of your fingernails, nice and long and shaped and painted. That was a problem 🙂


      • My town was the first in the USA to get the button-style phones. A big improvement over the rotary phones, but I can imagine they were not easy to use with the long nails.
