Rotary





I marvel at how much things have changed in my lifetime. 
The first phone my family had didn't even have a dial. i.e.:
Operator: number please … 
Me: Hastings 8317L (our phone # when I was 10 years old)
(but don't ask me what the weather was last week)

When the first telephone service was established in Tungelsta, my great grandfather (he was a politician and in control of most things), managed to get the best number. 1. Then over the years it changed a few times. When my grandmother died a little over a decade ago the number was 50030001.

91807 was mine till I was about 10, then it was 871-8547. If it weren't for long term memory, I'd have no memory at all.
