'D' For Dottie
is going on? I have recently purchased one of those beautiful
new 'Princess' telephones, in PINK of course! It seems that every
establishment I call requires me to "press" or "push" buttons
on my telephone, including one they call a "pound sign". Now,
my dial lights up when I pick up my Pink Princess Phone receiver,
but my goodness sakes, I have no idea what they are trying to
instruct me to do.
it is as simple as my calling the wrong establishments. Maybe
I need to be more selective of the type of business I am calling.
Really, why patronize such a rude and demanding vendor? At any
rate, Dearest Dottie, I just knew I could turn to you for some
domestic Goddess guidance! The fact remains, that although I get
little or none of my household duties completed over the telephone,
I look adorable in my 'Carrie Walker' polka-dot dress with my
matching pink pumps, and the pink rhinestone Weiss brooch and
earring set, with my charming homemade hostess apron on. So, I
suppose it matters not, chatting the day away with Francine and
Margie, never requires me to "press pound"!
truly, as ever,

the only "pound signs" Dottie cares about are those on the
bathroom scale, even with MY Weiss brooch and earring sets
As far as establishments that require you to "press" or "push"
things, well, Angel, Dear Dottie just does not understand!
Certainly, the number of letters we have to dial has increased—heck,
I remember two years ago when we were Fairvale 341; now it's
KLondyke 5-1234. More letters and numbers to DIAL (not..."push"...).
However, the new technologies HAVE allowed us gals the luxury
of "Portable Telephones" now—as you can see, I am holding
one in Photo Two. Miracles they are! Just miracles—so much
more compact, lightweight, in darling colors, and the cord
reaches a whole 12 feet!!! Compare to the clunkier model of
yesteryear on the left.
Future is HERE, my dear, embrace it, and stay in the pink!
