Old Phone

............Hello................
..............you rang?. I have been told I look like Bette Davis....
and sometimes like Karl Mauldin....
....and also Snuffleupagus .....you like?.....

......I smile big when I hear from you......

....and have sad days when I don't.
I have good ears to listen with....
......kind of like Mouse Ears, don't you think?
....in suspense for your next call...
....and will never hang up on you!

There is nothing better than to share a minute with a friend...
don't you think?

Yes, I do think it's great to share a minute with a friend. Somehow, my minute always turns into hours because there's so much to say.

The many faces of Mr. Phone is quite delightful. Personally, I think he looks a little like Jimmy Durante ;)
Happy weekend!

Your phone has multiple personalities! My little grandchildren don't have a clue about dialing a phone. It's all push buttons for them! How things change. Mimi

Im not such a great writter, Im a better phoner or inperson kind of person, so posting on blogs is getting me outside my so called"writting box" abit ... Ive been a lurker for about a year now.Im enjoying it but sometimes worry about being too funny or should I stay serious, its all new . One thing for sure there are so many nice people who come and are generous with their time and thoughts. Thanks.. Julie in Holland..

Colleen said...

What an adorable way to remind us that we need to stop and take time for our friends. Love the phone!

Miss Jean said...

The first phone number of ours that I recollect as a child was WWF3 on an old wall phone - party line and all! We have an entire generation (or two) of people who don't know why we say "dial" a phone rather than "punch" a phone. I can still hear the clickclickclick as the dial went backwards after dialing.

Sweet post.

Obie Trevino said...
