Love these! I recently purchased a rotary phone. Wish I had the camera on my kids as I tried to explain how to use it. Took them several tries before they got the hang of it. ;o)

Thanks for the great snaps. Happy Friday! :o)

Along with that dial we had names for the first two numbers in your phone, mine was Crestwood, so you dialed CR. If you were in a single prefix town you could dial 5 numbers.

That phone photo is very cool...

A dial phone. It wasn't so long ago I knew people who had phone numbers with letters in them.

I love your wish on the top of your blog. Very inspirational.

Hi BB!

I'm back from Blissdom and can't wait to get back to normal.

The rotary dial is my fave, though I really love B&W photos in general.

Great shots!

I have heard it said that black an' white is such a boring setting, but you have certainly showed us the beauty in it. Thanks.

Make that shown, instead of showed. I remembered too late to stop the internet creatures from grabbing that last comment an' giggling as they passed it on to you.
