  6. Blondie ~ sure you do! You don't have to do an acrostic. You can do anything that you want...just a picture, a quote, poem, short story or just your thoughts on the word. There are no rules or limits! It's fun!

  15. Tom ~ me, too! Although I haven't used one in a long time. Love that clicking sound as the dial rolls back.

  16. If you had championed the claims of the Italian Meucci to being the real inventor of the telephone you could have saved a lot of work. But we would have been denied the acrostic. Smashing post. Happy TT

  18. Alan ~ or Elisha Gray! There are several who claim to be the real inventor!

  29. I like the older and I mean older phones that did not even have a dial on them. You can see them in the really old movies, it is where you had to keep pushing the clicker thingy until the operator came on and she made the call for you. And in some of the old movies you can see the switchboard operators and all the chaos that went on. Really different compared to todays phones.

    God bless.

    PS...and I too like how you got the x into there.
