My G-ma, who will turn 94 this year in May, has a phone hanging where it always has. It's in the kitchen, under one of her cabinets, above a little desk. My kids always play around with it, by calling their cell phones with it. It's not a rotary, but they had no idea what it was, when they first noticed it.
In my opinion, cigars from the island can be very hit or miss. Cohiba is more consistent but many other brands are like a box of chocolates. Who knows what you’re going to get. Or— some are nothing special, but a month later they are great. For a new smoker I would recommend variety but stay with smaller vitolas. Nothing worse than a plugged cigar and the bigger sizes are more likely. Domestics are very consistent but not as adventurous. That being said my favorites are Bolivar Belicoso Fino’s. The good ones are not describable. As a newby in this group I cannot join in the name calling, but give me 6 months or so. 🤭. VB
I remember when they forced us to start dialing the exchange numbers (here it was 66 or MO for “Mohawk”
Until then it was just 5 numbers. If I remember correctly that was also when “party lines” became obsolete.
That was 78 or 79 here.
