"N"-Nobody is home!!



Growing up in the 80s, I can recall the tape recorder answering machines.  Not that my family was poor, we just did not get one.  A couple of days ago, sitting in the office, I recalled the tape recordings you could be for your answering machine.  Essentially some one had recorded a bunch of songs to famous, or recognizable, music.  And My favorite was "Nobody is home, Nobody is home!!"  (I was typing that in a low voice"

Do recall these little gems?   Did you have one of these recordings?  I use to record the message like I answered the phone.  I would give my customary greeting, pause (for effect) and announce I was not there.  Always funny to get a message half way through someone speaking.

To this day, I do not like leaving messages on voice mail.

Hello there, Tronster! Thanks for visiting my blog today. You probably thought it was going to be about baseball? :-( Nice to meet you, and thanks for the kind remarks. I love finding other believers in the blogosphere! As for this post, I STILL have an answering machine! My husband and I both have cell phones, but have not ditched the home phone yet. Maybe with the next cell phone purchase. We're so not cool. :-)
