Those Sheep Are So Phony…

My friend Ig sent me some pictures yesterday… they are made of discard telephones. A somewhat different model than the ones I grew up with but I remember the rotary dials and the coiled cords. I actually held out (in a curmudgeonly manner) quite a long time and although my phone was touch tone, it still had a 25 foot coiled cord up until about 10 years ago. When talking the cord would get tangled up and knock things off the table and the dog would get caught in it. Ironically when I finally had had enough and got a cordless phone mounted on the wall right where the old one was, I ended up standing next to the wall unit even though there was no cord. It didn’t occur to me that I was doing this until at least a year had passed. Anyway, apparently some of those old phones went out to pasture…
