Strange....


Saturday on my way to the spa 
I couldn't find my cell phone so
I had to stop by one of these things.

It is a telephone booth....
at least that is what Beth called it.

Funny, isn't it?
You just go in this box, shut the door.... 
there is a NEW type of telephone
 on a wall, you have to take this thing 
called a receiver off of it to talk into 
and then you put money in the 
box on the wall and punch 
in the number you want to call and
talk to people....

Strange....
must be something new....

Later -- Remington --
what they won't think of next....
-- out!

That is a beautiful telephone booth! I wonder whether I know how to use it though. Just saying!

GOOSE said...

This new phone thingy would be hard to pack around in your pocket. I think this new idea just might fail.

Hmmm, Mum remembers these from a dim and distant memory - you can even still find them in quaint little villages sometimes.

Hahaha. The ones we see around here are usually covered with unsightly money lender stickers. Nothing as pretty as what you have.
