Quoted from o-din:
There was a period of time where the yoyo got big again. Without cell phones, we needed something entertaining in our hands.[quoted image][quoted image]
I thought cell phones would be a passing fad... Boy was that wrong... I still recall my dad refusing to pay a charge on the phone bill for tone dialing and instead using a selector switch on our phone that used pulse dialing to avoid that added tone dialing fee. We had one phone in the house and if anyone was on it more than 5 minutes there were questions on what was wrong. The standing instructions were to say what you had to say and get off the phone. I got a pong game for Christmas that we played on the black and white TV for hours.. I was on the "B" difficulty and everyone else was on "A".
