Hello? Can you hear me now?

Sorry, but I love that television commercial, and this Telephone block goes with it so well. 

The calendar block was done in black, but I was in a red phone mood today...wasn't that the color of the phone in the bat cave on the old Batman and Robin show?  (My brother made me watch that show every Friday night when we were little).  Kids now don't get the pleasure of trying to have a "private" phone call while the phone is connected to the wall in the kitchen.  It was so bad in our house that I bought an extra long cord so I could run the ear piece all the way through the kitchen, down the hall, and into my bedroom.  Oh the joys of being a teenager and trying to get a really important phone call in...course then my grandma can tell even better stories of the party lines.  You never knew who was listening in on those, and by the time you got off the phone, everyone in town knew your news.  I'm always going to smile when I look at this block.  This is a 12-inch block and is number 27 of 366.

Yes, "get off the phone" was a constant in my house growing up too!
Whoop Whoop!

I also loved the old 'rings' we got. And the cool phone numbers 'BR162' and such. Cute block.
