phones with a round dial
when the first interstate was built in our state
when people actually received telegrams delivered to their homes
when my Grandmother had a wooden phone on the wall and she talked to an operator to place a call on their rural system
when long distance calls were saved for major life events

not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11
