Thought For The Day

Thought For The Day:

Sign on the side of the road: "On This Exact Spot on July, 24, 1876, Nothing Happened."

Retirement is great except you don't get a day off.

Telephone. An object which rings when the only person at home is taking a bath.

One man's telephone is another man's wrong number.

Telephone. A device that makes it easy to distinguish voices and hard to extinguish them.

Telephone, n, An invention of the devil which abrogates some of the advantages of making a disagreeable person keep his distance.

A telephone pole never strikes a vehicle except in self defence.

Welcome to Geoff Mawdsley from the UK.  Happy to have you on board.

Geoff makes telephone cords for vintage telephones.  He can be contacted at
He will be setting up a website of his own soon and he will have a link on this blog.

I quote from Geoff's e-mail:  "What would be a good idea, if new members give a little information as to how they became interested in telephones, what that interest is, and details of their collection , and what they collect."

Many thanks Geoff.
