Writing for these pages is sometimes fun and other times just a reminder that the world changes with time. In the not so distant, yet now historic, past, every household had these things delivered right to their door every year or more often. Sometimes we would rip out the pages when we couldn’t find a notepad, or use them to hold the door open, sometimes we'd draw pictures all over them and even put them under our kid's butts so they can reach the dinner table! Certainly, back in the day, somebody probably used the pages as toilet paper. Yet, somehow, we even managed to use them as telephone books…what a concept. Even more amazing, if we wanted to get in touch with someone, or find the Maytag man (huh?) we’d even grab this thing and page through it to find a phone number!
What is most amazing is that some who are reading this don't know where the phrase "galaxy far, far away" came from or even what a telephone was, let alone a telephone book. To think, today they are sold on E-Bay, sometimes for well over $100. If I'd only known!
