When I was a young lad, my grandma would always talk about the good old days; how things were simpler and life less complicated. Today with our smartphones, video games and social media, there seems to a bigger than ever generation gap. We just may have the solution! Check out this video on how to dial a telephone and ask grandma what it was like before the days of touch tone. Ask about “party lines” and the difference between “station to station” and “party to party.” For extra credit ask her if the operator ever had to call her to complain that her son, your dad, was using the telephone to dial the operator, giggle and then hang up. Things really were simpler then.

  1. Mike – Great trip down history lane! I am not old enough to remember any party lines in my home growing up, but I do remember them at my grandmother’s house. Thanks for the memories!
