Pottery Workshop - Telephone

After a very long wait
I finally have a Telephone Line in at the new Workshop
and the Number is
01460 249647

I always wanted one of these old phones
and this classic is from 1973
the year I got interested in Pottery.
I believe it's the classic potters phone
because you don't get the buttons clogged up with clay when you answer it.
and the handset is quite heavy
which means you try and keep your conversations short.

Tis a beauty Paul, I remember those. I bet the heavy handset doesn't mean you keep any converstations short at all. Happy phoning.

ring, ring
Hello, Jessop Pottery, Paul speaking
Hi Paul, Ron here.
Ron, Good to hear your voice.
Ah yours as well. How are the pots coming along today.
Very well, I've had several customers pop in too and they were in a buying mood.
Fantastic! How about I swing by at quitting time and we go out for a pint or two.
Okay see ya then. Cheers.
Cheers Ron, see ya in a bit.

Hi Ron, Now that's what I call a perfect use of a telephone.

10 out of 10, go to the top of the class, or even better the Duke of York, for a few pints of Thatchers Gold.

I love those old phones, they never break.

To quote Iris Dement, "Now, THAT's old-timey."

Ron said...

I'd love a Thatchers Gold right about now!

Pottery is the New Yoga?

Earlier in the year one of my daughters sent me a link to an article in Vogue magazine which stated "Pottery is the New Yoga"...
