    • Hi Cathy. I remember calling ten miles down the road was long distance, party lines, and rotary phones, but the phone numbers always had 7 digits that I remember.

      • We actually dialed 7 digits, turning the letters into numbers. Our # was Granite 42006. We dialed the first two letters of granite, which translated to 47, then the #s. I don’t know why the # was prefixed with a word, but it was. We were on an 8-party line way back in the age of dinosaurs.
