    • Doug — I fear answering that. What is going through my mind probably isn’t what was going through yours. And if it is — shame on you!

  1. THAT’S IT!!
    I knew that somewhere there was the *perfect* caption for that face and that phone, and Quilly you got it, that was brilliant. D’oh!

    OMG, party lines — my Aunt Doris was the last one in our area to hang on to hers and not switch to a private line, and eventually she was forced to because there was nobody left to ‘party’ with. But my mother had a few stories about the neighbourhood gossips who you *knew* were listening.

  2. Oh the talk those party lines caused!

    As a kid I remember a neighbor telling me to “quit talking to your little friend at school who you can tell everything to tomorrow, I have an emergency.”

    Yeah, 5 minutes later when I grabbed the phone again, she was STILL gossiping. 🙂
