What was in the package

Not a taser... not Star Trek DVDs.... not an Atari... though the latter two are probably on his Christmas list. No one guessed it- no trophies will be given out today. Thanks for playing, Matt, Matt & Matt!
A rotary phone! For 50 cents plush shipping! Working! With a real bell for a ringer. Honestly, the ringer is my favorite part- I love the way the authentic sound of a vibrating bell reverberates across the house. So cool.
I'll admit, I haven't made a call on it yet. Josh has, and the handset is loud and clear.

Hehe I grew up with one of those phones. :-) So are you and Josh going back to rotary phones, with dial-up internet and no cell phones? :-)

Sweet! We had an old one to play with when we were kids.

Yeah, the mechanical ring of the rotaries are terrific. I've managed to get my Goodwill-found rotary cleaned up pretty well and taking it apart was a fun task. It's nice to dig in a see that, oh, the ring volume switch just adjusts which bell the hammer hits for each ring.
