Question:

So which phone did you choose in '79??? I really wanted that Mickey Mouse phone, but it never happened - not that I had anyone to call back then anyway, being 11 years old...

One of my best friends had the Mickey phone. She was (is!) Disney obsessed. I had piano phone, but not until I was in high school, when my boyfriend bought it for me. :)

My folks had a rotary phone until '86. They're really resistant to change..

Well, back then, touchtone service was more expensive than rotary service, which is why my parents wouldn't switch for a long time. I remember developing a very good dialing technique for call-in radio contests.

I finally got rid of my land line just yesterday, and am a little sad I can't use my old rotary phone any more.

I didn't know that (about it being more expensive). And also, you've been using a rotary phone until just recently? I haven't seen one of those in decades. In '85 my brother had a friend over to our house, and he had to use the phone. They gave him the rotary phone and he didn't know how to use it.... ..

Well, I haven't had one all these years -- I bought an old rotary off ebay 5 or 6 years ago and hooked it up. Now it will serve in a purely decorative capacity.
