Gloria - We still say something similar, but we say "you get it." We still have a land line, but the phone is in the kitchen. So if we are in the family room, someone has to go get the phone when it rings.

Oh, the old rotary phone was so much fun! I don't think I every dialed the wrong number either. But then again, as a kid, it was a privilege to dial the phone or receive a call. Those times were rare. I can still hear the sound of the rotary dial.... and the brrring, brrring, brrring, too!

What a lovely memory!
