I grew up with the party line too, and the old telephone with the crank at the side. We had a dairy farm and dad would come in from milking when he found out a cow was in heat and he would have to call the artificial insemination people before they left on their route for the day, and would frequently have to break into the conversations of ladies on the line. I'm sure they would listen in to my dad's conversation (so exciting!). I still remember the number. He'd turn the crank and say Zenith 60850. I can't remember my good friend's cell phone number, but I can still remember that!
