and the diversion of the hippies and hallucinogenic drugsWe did come back--to work in high tech! Well, I did (hippie, no hallucinogens).We never had a party line, but we had a phone without a dial till the late 50s. You picked up the phone, the operator said, "Number, please" and you told her the number. This was in a close-in NYC suburb! BUt we were an unincorporated village. A more civilized age, like lightsabers* instead of blasters ;-) I remember that we got a different exchange (but the same final 4 digits) when we switched to dial service. Automation…where have all the operators gone?!* OMG, getting old…I had to google for "laser swords used by jedi" to come up with lightsaber =8^0
