OH...my... FUCKING.... GAWD!!!!

My Grandma *STILL* has a rotary phone.

And it's still the clearest sounding phone I've ever used.

AND I LOVE JIFFY POP! (I still buy it) O_O

Or air poppers, remember those? What came between stove and microwave the RONCO AIR POPPER!

Bland lifeless popcorn.

Ha! I guess that makes me a generation older than you 'cause my PARENTS still use their rotary phone.

I made a call from their house for the first time in YEARS a couple of months ago and had almost forgotten what to do with it. But that thing is going to last about forever, and they do have another phone for when they need to do touchtones, so why not?

And for extra points, it's avocado green!

Hey, happy birthday, babe!

So do mine. :) They have one on their porch. My dad had one from the 1940s and wanted to throw it out when it quit working but a customer who happened to collect such old things was in his shop at the time and nearly fainted when he handed it to him for free.

I grew up with a LOT of this old stuff, partly for financial reasons, and partly because "if it still works, use it"!

:D

GAVE IT AWAY?

*faints*

Suckers with more money than sense Antique Shop Owners/Patrons pay bookoo bucks for that shite.

Never one to turn down a fools money if he/she is willing to give it to me for JUNK!

No KIDDING!!! Dad just doesn't realize the value people place on junk. And that's what he calls it, "junk," even though he's witnessed first hand the wonders of culling fortunes through ebay. The guy even offered him money for the phone, but he gave it to him anyway.

I'm reminded of a Steve Miller song lyric...

"Go on, take the money and run...."

AND he's the one who's always telling me about "a fool and his money," usually in reference to my brother or me buying something stupid. Obviously it can go either way. (Darnit, I wish I had thought of using that line on him at the time...)
