    Our first phone was 2 long and 1 short ring, you could hear several people pick up to just listen, on the party line. Then it went to 91137, when the prefix came in, it was LYcoming 91137.

    I received a set (larger, I think) for Christmas when I was about 8? (1942). Had lots of fun with them. Had a Lincoln Log Cabin set for another Christmas present and an Erector Set for yet another. They knew how to keep me out of mischief. Perhaps why I became an engineer.

    I have a 64 Mustang convertible. My 7 year old granddaughter loves to put the top down and go cruising. She couldn't figure out how to get the window down. I told her to roll it down. She looked at me with a blank look. I showed her how and she was thrilled. She sat there and rolled it up and down. It was like a new toy to her.
