AT&T Where Are You?

(Sung to the tune of "Car 54, Where Are You?")

"Kramer! It's Cassie! Can you hear me?"
"Harrumph! All I get is silence."
Yes, Cassie, today is day 4 of having no phone. AT&T say they're working on an area outage and it should only take a few more days. Can you believe it? A whole week without a phone.

I took an inventory of Sweetbrier's phones. Got a couple of cordless ones - they're wonderful for when you want to walk around the house unencumbered.
The old wall phone is great for when the electricity goes out. You can still call out which you can't do with the cordless ones.
Remember the rotary dial? It's fun as long as you're not in a hurry:) Of course the receiver is a bit on the heavy side. Haven't we gotten lazy!!!
Thank heaven for cell phones!!!
"Kramer ole boy, can you hear me now?"
Update: An hour after I posted this, my phone called me and said it was now working. If I'd known all I had to do was post on my blog to get it fixed I would have done that Monday. Have a good weekend!

Isn't that the way it always goes? Glad your phones are back to working. Can Kramer hear Cassie now? At least they'll probably give you a break on your next bill.

I remember Car 54, Where Are You! Don't remember much about the show, but remember the opening!
