        Yep, Signal Corps - 1 Circus Btn  /7 Sig Bgde (Patch was what we called the Outhouse on a Hill getting hit by Lightning). What I miss mist about Germany are Smoked Bratwurst, Hard Rolls with Cracked seed Brown Mustard and a BIER - Prost!

       They won't for a while. It's a poor excuse for either Bad Behavior or a way of grouping folks that really ain't a group - "All those (pick a group) can't help what they're doing/thinking because it's in their DNA.

       Yep, I grew up with EMpire-7- for our phone number. Oh and want to call long distance then - sorry No Area Codes, Dial O and tell Her which City and then once switched over tell the next operator who it was you wanted to talk to and if it was a big enough City, their Address.
       Sticking with the Phone thing  "Drop a Dime".

        How 'bout Party Lines! For those that don't know, back then unless you paid extra you shared your phone line with several others and the act of listening for a Dial Tone was to make sure no one else was already on the line. Back then you didn't worry about the Government monitoring your calls. It was the Neighbors you worried about!

        Bill, I can assure you the short cut to Never being able to Date someone then was demonstrating that without being asked to while waiting for her when her Father was watching TV.............
        But other that a Home Brew remote Starter by the Cars owner, I've No Idea how anyone could start a car with one of 'em.

     The Load Metallac "Clunk" sounding remotes wern't even Electric in Operation. They were Sonic. When you pushed the button a "hammer" hit a rod (worked like a tuning fork) that sent out tones at 4 different frequencies, one for each button. If you ever wanted to drive the owner of one of those Fancy TV's nuts all you had to do is shake your Key Ring while sitting buy the TV. It's change channels and turn on and off

      Yep Snake you got the Group. The Song Title is I've Never Been To Spain. I like the Song, but it always seemed to me like it was almost ready to bust loose but could never quite make it.

       Harry, I'm with Snake. I've Never owned a Cell Phone. Although in the late '70's when I worked on Radio Repeaters, for testing I did have a Radio Common Carrier  "Phone" where you would call an Operator and they would dial the number. The system was Simplex so each person had to say Over when done with their part of the conversation - Sorta like CB for the Rich and Famous
        Another Phrase I grew up with that is still heard now and then but many have forgotten the root of is "That was an E Ticket Ride". As a Kid that grew up in the San Fernando Valley, when anyones Dad said they were going to Disneyland, it was the Kids job(s) to go to ALL their friends homes and look for Ticket Books with an E Ticket being the Top ticket. Good For the Best Rides!
