I immediately thought of the 1966 version of Call Me by Chris Montez offered by Mr. Earl. I guess that's a sign of age, right Mr. E?

Trish said...

most of the kids in my life would ask "what's THAT?"

I have to ditto Earl & db's "Call Me" thought.

But the next thought was "pick it up, find out where the nearest potty is", helpful to young parents and older folks with "plumbing" issues.

next thought was---"this is the phone for kinda important not REALLY emergencies". Red phone is for OMG's. Yellow phone is for "oops, I kinda ran over an opossum, what do I do now?".

final thought, in that it is outside the PO "help, someone's gone postal inside, send help!", though personally, I'd probably RUN over to the PD to a) get as far away as possible and b) get help!

These are great! I should start another series called Put a Soundtrack to This Photo...

Don't you LOVE YouTube?

Barbara, you and I are on the same wavelength. I thought of that song too. I'm laughing at Trish's idea of a phone for kinda-emergencies, not as bad as the red phone.

I love the two Call Me songs. I would never have remembered the name Chris Montez.

You guys rock! More more more!

yellow phone - it looks so vulnerable hanging there - i fear it would soon get vandalised in these parts.

this long phone got lost on the way from 1985. It meant to land in a shopping mall parking lot, but its GPS got wacky, and dropped him here, no where's ville!

"Museum Piece"

Mister Earl said...

Exactly, -K. Right across the street, there's a typewriter on an identical pedestal!

Love the idea of the typewriter!
