Pay Phone

I was sitting on the porch of an old country store in Wawona, CA … southwest area of Yosemite National Park.  An old pay phone attracted two young girls.

They knew it was a telephone, but unsure of its features.  The receiver cord was a bit annoying to the would-be caller.  The receiver’s cradle unique, and designated places for the ear and mouth was bizarre.  The big mystery was the coin slot.

WHAT?!  Put money in a telephone?  Are we in the Twilight Zone?

Thought for the DayThey will never experience the joy of slamming down a telephone’s receiver.
