    The good old ‘80s. Two things you don’t see much these days: a phone book and a rotary dial land line phone.

    “Let Your Fingers Do the Walking”; the Yellow Pages. Now that is a blast from the past, I can not really remember the last phonebook to be dropped off at my house. I did a quick online search and this is the last reference I had for a phonebook being delivered on the Sun Coast of Florida:

    It looks like it must have been printed late 2012, but the guy who did the post might be wrong about the post office dropping it off here in FL, though I do not know about other places. I think the phone company dropped off the books themselves using people from temporary employment service like Manpower who can handle short term jobs like this rather than use regular staff. I remember some guys doing that for Manpower back in the early ’90s.

    My cousin still has one, can’t even make a call with it so he has to use the push button phone in the basement. I wanted to get him a cordless modelwith answering to replace it, but he doesn’t want one.

    Kids wouldn’t even know what the things are in the last panel.

    I remember (it was years ago) discovering an actual listing in the Bronx phone book for a surgeon, “Dr. Carnicero”. I believe that “carnicero” is Spanish for “butcher”.

    Milo, better have your blood sugar checked. That foot itch could be a sign of diabetic neuropathy.

    Hmm, this one looks promising. It says that Joan Rivers is a client

    When you know nothing about the subject, do you pick the first name or the biggest ad?

    Telephone book choice—it’s like playing the lottery. Most of the time, you lose….
