Phonebook attention


The first of three different phone books we'll get this year (that I know of). I could rant about phone books forever. But, I'll spare you. This time.

I've gone paperless. Each one of those books that has hit my door step have made it into the trash.

Best resource:

I get at least 5(!) phone books a year. I really only use the county one. The others don't make it past the recycle bin. The rest of the time, it's online for me.

Is Leland Grove nice? I had an uncle named Leland.

Shoo, maybe once a year I use the phonebook. Yahoo's people search is an excellent resource. I use Google a lot, too.

Kem, Five is too many. Leland Grove is a little municipality which happens to lie within the bounds of Springfield. Up until not so many years ago, it was pretty exclusive to old money. These days, not so much.

Laura, thanks for posing your thumb in my picture. :)

I get three per year, too. Three more than I need but I think we save the one with the largest print until it's replaced a year later. Doubt it gets opened more than once or twice. That's if the wife does it. I'm not even sure where it is.

Rob, Hehe! I know exactly what you mean. We can never find the phone book when we really need it.
