I remember back in the late 1980s I was working a retail job here in town and asked an older gentleman for his phone number for a special order. He replied "TEmple-4 blah blah blah". I don't recall the number now and at the time had no idea what he was talking about but wrote it down. He left and the guy in line behind him said, "Wow, TEmple? Haven't heard it called that in ages." He then explained to me what the old guy meant. Now, here I am, years later, and *I* have a TEmple number....
