Ah, these old phones - a thing of beauty.

Until about ten years ago, I had only big black old rotary dial phones. One time our house flooded and the damned thing tried to ring while in flood water. You could hear the muffled ring and see the waves coming out around the phone - Now that's the reliability of the old monopoly days. I remember moving in the 90's and telling ma bell, no I don't want touchtone service. They sent out something like 4 or 5 technicians over the next couple of months because they couldn't figure out how to turn off touch tone, and I guess they didn't believe someone still had rotary phones.

Married now, so we have darned plastic foreign wireless phones that proly will give us all brain cancer...and the voice quality sucks. Still long for my old black western electric made in the usa....
