6th February 1979

Tuesday 6
Got up at 9.15 Stayed off college cos of a cold (sounds like a 'duvet day' to me ... although it would have been 'woolly blanket and flannelet sheet day' then, mmm? just doesn't have the same ring to it somehow?)
Sam phoned at 1.30

I also got a letter off him and I wrote back

Fi phoned after college

Sa
m phoned again in the evening
He was really chatty as his parents were out
(it was a time when you had one phone in the house, usually situated in the lounge and cordless phones were a thing of dreams!!)


So what would you invent? In the 70s yes I would have desired some privacy as in a cordless phone!



But I am voting now for Fran Lane, Bristol & Sue Burton, Birmingham
but above all Belen Lewis, Wilts who said
'I'm hopeless at spelling so I'd rather like to invent something like a spelling calculator; for instance, you would say a word like Unitarian into a microphone and the machine would spell it out for you.'

I fondly remember my rotary phone with the spirally cord (we called them "Barney Miller phones"). I can't believe how many hours I spent tied to it, cordless would have been a nightmare for my parents!

hope Wendy Tailor has finally cut her troublesome waist length hair...

tNb~ I was certainly on the phone an awful lot as a teen and still love a great natter on the phone to mates.
What has just occurred to me is that my teen doesn't use the phone... she communicates by msn & text..... I tell you though she can type so fast

Yep NM Wendy had missed the easy opyion of having cut ,..... but she could have used Batiste dry shampoo (awful stuff!!)

Batiste Dry Shampoo! I remember that!

think I actually liked the smell of it too. I remember going home to nz on a visit and feeling really chuffed with myself because I had this groovy Batiste that no one else had heard of.
