here is the kid's new favorite toy
yep, hubby came home with a rotary phone that was at his work. they were so focused on it. And a learning curve to dial all the way to the end. Remember when you would have to redial all the numbers if you didn't get the rotor all the way to the end. I had a phone number with 2 zeros. Man, mess that up and it was a long time to call home.
We plugged it in, it worked. the kids called their uncle. Then they realized they were stuck where they were. No wandering or bringing the phone to someone else. Remember that phones used to have their own table and a chair? We should have called it. I'm sure the bell ringing will bring some reactions.
Continuing on with our trip down memory lane, here is my grandmother's knitting needle case
I haven't opened it up in a few years. I remember taking all the big needles out back then.
I was wondering why my nan had so many of the same sized needles and then remembered that she used to teach classes at the community college. I think she was a senior then. Oh to talk to her now that I'm in the sewing frame of mind. she made so many wonderful things. I'm sure there would be many tips.
It's nice to own some of her treasures. I always felt special as I was her namesake.
thanks for looking,
