Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Dad wrote about the telephone, so different from today’s phones. ‘Our telephone was on a party line, when we needed to call someone, you first picked up the receiver to see if the line was not busy, if not,one turn of the crank would get an operator in Beetown who would ask you who you wanted to call. Your neighbors could hear your ring for the operator and could pick up their phone and listen or as it was called ‘rubber neck’ every one on the line had a different ring so you would know if the call was for your household. Our’s was two short rings and one long ring”
