Isn’t that a princess phone?
It is a long story but the short version is that my dad made it possible for that phone to be produced on time and actually got the credit for making it happen
(this is virtually unheard of in big companies like AT&T ,Western Electric at the time).
I’ve seen the turn kind in the movies too .
you are too funny and I loved this post.
Yes – a princess phone. Woo!Hoo! about your dad! Wow!
I love that phone! When you got angry with the caller you coud smack it down HARD on the cradle and deafen their eardrums. I can’t stand the fact that with today’s phones you can’t do that anymore… *grumble*
Exactly! That just doesn’t work with a cell phone, does it? lol
Does that mean we can’t be a princess anymore? (princess phone….um….get it? LOL)
Oooooooo! Good one!! No more little princess. HeeHeeHee!
I remember having a ‘party line’ when I stayed on a farm. It also had a handle to turn.
My grandparents had a party line when they lived on their farm, but they didn’t have a phone with a handle. When the phone rang, we would have to wait and see whose ring it was. I thought it was very funny at the time.
hahaha … priceless. *Cindy confesses to remembering the old ‘turn the handle’ phones too*
More confessions. Oh, my. . . (lol) I’ve seen them in movies. HeeHeeHee!
Oh My Goodness….now THAT brings back memories.
Don’t tell anyone but I can remember when you turned a handle and asked the person on the exchange for the number you wanted.

Your secret is safe with me. HeeHeeHee! What’s a zimmer?
A walking Aid!
