Off the hook.

Off the hook and definitely out of commission, unlike these telephones that I showed you last September.


A predicament like the one in the song  "Off the Hook" by the Rolling Stones wouldn't be possible today unless you have a rotary phone.  Do you?

 Wanna listen?

Oh this is wonderful Pat. You know I used to keep old phones and then moved and moved again - they went by the wayside. Love the photo.

i loved the solid weight of this phone style. even as a child there was something quite satisfying about "holding the phone".

Looks like you found this is a dusty antique shop. Haven't had a rotary phone in years. Don't even have a home phone line anymore!

Thanks for taking me back almost 50 years with this post! (Wasn't expecting to time-travel today, but . . .)

I miss the heavy phones!!! We have one phone hooked to our landline via a cord...if you pick up the hand set to answer the phone, the cord picks up the lightweight base at the same time and the phone frequently falls off the table...what a pain!!! But we live in an area where the electricity goes out and satellite signals disappear so we keep our corded landline!!!
