Isn't she a beauty? I took a chance at the Thrift Shop the other day and picked up this really filthy dirty wall mounted telephone from the mid 60s. It was marked $5, but because I'm a frequent shopper they sold it to me for $1. Of course, I'm gonna get it, right?
For $1, I didn't really care if it worked cause it was so cool to look at, but I was hoping it did. The digital phones we received free from our cable company can't hold a battery charge longer than 10 minutes (if we're lucky.) Plus, having the base plugged in all day costs energy dollars too. So.....
I brought home this Automatic Electric/GTE Model #192 rotary dial phone, cleaned it up with a LOT of alcohol and removed the telephone jack from the base of my worthless digital duo and plugged it into the back of my "new" retro phone. Eureka (success!) lol.....it works beautifully. I called myself from my cell phone (I had forgotten how LOUD and kinda annoying the old fashioned bell rings are) and then I called my cell phone from my rotary dial phone. It's a champ! I hung it inside my computer armoire and I'm back in business.....
Nothing like going back to the basics. Satisfied sigh.........!!!
