"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. :-)
