Things no one says any more

"Oh, damn, I just ran out of film"

"Oh, what a good shot, but I've only got two pictures left on the roll"

"Will my typewriter keep you awake?"

"Looks like I need a new ribbon"

"Where's the carbon paper?"

"Dont'cha just hate those encyclopedia salesmen"

"Our tv antenna blew down"


  1. My 8 track just ate another tape

    Wish we had a heated outhouse

    I forgot to gather the eggs

    would someone walk over and change
    channels on the tv?

  2. Hey, someone get the phone!

  3. Can I borrow a quarter? I need to make a phone call.

    (Gosh, I miss rotary dial phones. And phone booths. There was no better conversation in the world than the one held in the privacy of that glass closet while the world rushed by all around you.)

  4. Soon, I fear:
    "Do you think I need extra postage on this?"

  5. 78s, 33 1/3, 45s

    "Hey, I gotta get to the bank, it's almost 3 pm and they close on the dot."

  6. Dang, I've run out of floppies
