Well, remember when .   .   . you actually looked forward to the new ones arriving, and you checked to see if you were in it. Because if you were, that meant that you were 'somebody' and not just some transient dweller in a city or town.

Then 'landlines' dissappeared and most phone books became doorstops.

"Why do I do this? Because the money's good, the scenery changes and they let me use explosives, okay?"

Yep! And after we got tired of seeing them on the floor by the door we just threw them out the day they came. Then they stopped coming period. Haven't seen one for years.

Wow, that means nobody knows if I'm here any more. Sad

Stay Safe.

Here in Eastern PA, Verizon stopped sending them out a couple of years ago.

I used to work with a lady who trained therapy dogs on the side, Shelties.  And she used to take them to facilities for people with some severe mental and emotional disabilities.  Communing with the dogs had definite positive effects on the patients.

Well, she also collected phone books to take along.  Some patients with severe obsessive-compulsive conditions would tear the books up as an activity.

I miss the books for the coupons that were sometimes included, and the magnet ads glued to the covers had uses, too.

The bigger the government, the smaller the citizen.

You can sleep here in this store room, Navin

Wow, it's perfect, I won't even have to redecorate. How much will it cost me?

Aw, when you get rich you can send me a postcard.

Hmmm, a postcard, huh? ------- Okay, it's a deal.
