Scrapbook Every Day Because Every Day Changes * Crank Phones to Cell Phones

Evolution of mobile phones.
I saw this pin from the I Waste So Much Time blog.
I have often thought about doing a layout about phones 
because they are so much a part of my daily life!
This image may be just what I need!
And so here I go with some stream of consciousness things about phones for the layout…
  • My Papa was a Bell Telephone man – insulators, climbing poles, get stories from Aunt Clara
  • Aunt Clara worked for “Ma Bell”, too. Who was “Ma Bell”?
  • There is some family story about my Mom having the first phone in Roxbury, KS – it was a “crank phone”. 
  • The old crank phones had rings specific to a household, anyone could listen to the conversations, & there were “operators” – one ringy dingy….
  • My husband used to recite old phone numbers to put me to sleep! hahaha – never was good in math class. I apparently have “numerosomnia” (I love making up words, though).
  • I had a pink flip phone.
  • I survived being a teenager without a cell phone
  • I played in an old telephone booth as a kid. You could bake a kid in there in August. I figured out how to survive without a label on it saying, 
  • “Do Not Put a Kid in Here in August. Kid could bake.”
  • People in small rural communities still give their last four digits as their phone numbers “-5555” (not kidding)
  • I have no idea what my kids’ phone numbers are.
  • Getting a phone other than black was extra, rotary dials, touch tone, Princess phones
Photos are so EASY to get now – another layout opportunity!
What I might like to add for photo support:
