Did anyone else grow up in a small town where you picked up the
phone and told the operator to whom you wished to speak?
I used to pick up the receiver and ask for my G'anny (grandmother) and would
get connected.... later on when I knew more about numbers I would ask for
"980" and get her.
We got dial phones when I was 8 yrs old, and I was the first one to dial a
number on the rotary phone.
BTW, I don't live too far from there now, and we just got touch-tone
capability here about 5 yrs ago. Until that time I could dial 5 digits, not
7, and connect to any number on our two exchanges. Still don't have phone-co
