Day 111

Touch phones?!

July 15th, 2010

Did I pass through some sort of wormhole into the future?


  1. Barbara Kiviat says:

    THE fancy future maybe. There’s ice, too!

  2. Don in Tennessee says:

    Are those 4 bee hives in the background betwen the sign posts? Might be the hives for the bees on the flower in a previous post.

    Where would you go to get food to stock the LARGE KITCHETTE?

    BIG SKY-SERENE BEAUTY!!!-God’s hand in action again!!! – Thank God for the beauty and Matt for the photo!

  3. Dennis in So Cal says:

    A “Large Kitchette?” Wouldn’t that be a kitchen?

  4. Don in Tennessee says:

    OH! – and the touch phones – a step up from the string and 2 tin cans! – That sky will be goergous tonight when the stars are out! I am jealous that I do not get to enjoy this sky tonoght.

    Matt, thank you for another gret shot. Don’t forget to touch your phone tonight!

  5. Kevin from NC says:

    Apparently the old dial versions were just too slow, but they were fun to dial! Time to upgrade to the 60’s and get a TOUCH tone phone. Oh wait, still 50 years behind : )

  6. Jeff says:

    and for some they are still paying extra for the “touch” dial service….what a joke. Hay congress…can you fix that one first.

    • Don in Tennessee says:


      That is called paying extra for obsolete technology! The patent probably has not run out on “touch” dial service! Besides what else would you expect from our great leaders in Washington who are not in the real world?

      That is enough on that.

      Thank you Matt for helping us see the reasl USA step by step!

  7. Karen Too says:

    My guess is that is a very old sign, and that they meant touch tone phones.

  8. Dan says:

    My favorite is cable TV!! – without Cable in that country, you get two channels – one “snowy”.

    • Patty says:

      Personally Dan, I can’t wait to get ‘back to the future’ here…I must be one of the last of a dying breed…no cable, satellite dish tv, etc…just over the air waves…and when they made the switch from analog to digital I went from something like 9 channels to just ONE…and that pixelates on me whenever bad weather is upon us and stays that way for a couple of days.

      thinking here…now living in the midwest – when would i NEED tv the most??? oh yes…just about the time the tornado is about to hit…but alas…by then all I have are choppy little squares the revert to ‘No Signal’…Uffda!

      • Jim in AR via MN says:

        Uffda???…wait a minute…must be a real Minnesotan out there Patty…hopefully Matt has come up against an Uff da or two on his walk…there are of course many more versions of Uff da…missing a turn may be an Uff da…slipping on a “cow pie” on the way to church…now that may be an “Fee da”…or something like that…

        So good to hear a little MN slang again!!!…sorry for the following…but couldn’t help it…

  9. Michelle says:

    Hey, while most of y’all were enjoying electricity we were still fighting Indians….. Seriously. Y’all need to realize we haven’t been tamed for all that long out here.

  10. Sharon P says:

    Great sign!

  11. Candice in Alabama says:

    That is ONE BIG BLUE SKY! Plus – TOUCH PHONES! :) That’s an old sign or an alternate universe. How far we’ve come in communication technology!

    • Dennis in So Cal says:

      I would trade Patty my fiber optic U-Verse television service for one night of stargazing the Montana sky…but then I want it back!

  12. George says:

    maybe Morgan Freeman can clear it up since he frequents wormholes…

  13. jay MN says:

    They even got cable in color! (Yeah for sure this sign is dated, and has not been updated since the 80’s!)
