189th post

CONTINUED FROM THIS MORNING....

Grandmother's phone, like I said, was on the left wall of the living room

after walking thru the kitchen. If you wanted to make a call to someone

you picked up the thing (it looked like a small barbell but, of course, it

was a lot lighter. This is what you listen into and was not attached

permanently, but held in a holder attached to the phone box by a

telephone cord. The telephone box was rectangular being about 1 foot

at the top and bottom and about 2 feet long on each side. There was

something like a small megaphone attached permanently to the box

that you spoke into and something like a doglegged handle that you

could wind clockwise to dial up the operator....

would be closer to Mother's sight at the south picture window. I had a

lot of trouble with blackbirds, but after looking it up on the internet I

found out that they will not eat safflower seeds....

Ryan and I went to Wooster today. I wanted to go to Pat Catanns (a craft

store with some plastic stack-able storage boxes that I wanted) Lowes, for

a bag of black mulch and some wood screws that I needed to tighten the

American banner flag that hangs above and to the right of the front door.

It needs to be hung at a 45 degree angle or else it will wrap around it self.

I also wanted to go to PostNet that mails letters, packs, applies postage and

ships packages, sells greeting cards and postcards and other services that

I'm not familiar with yet. I bought some potcards of Amish living who live

just one county south of the county we live in (Wayne)....
