  1. Love the phone, the sepia look, and the quote, Bill. My grandmother called us one day years ago and when my dad answered the phone, said, “Oh, I didn’t think anyone was home.” Then why did she call? 🙂 Same idea.

    1. Janet, we of a certain age can all remember the sound those phones made…Ring! Ring! My memory says they came in bursts of two, hence my title. My mother went to work at the phone company shortly after high school; her first supervisor told her she didn’t think she’d last six months as an operator. The supervisor lived a long life, and was at Mom’s retirement dinner…thirty-seven years later.
