At least that's what his title states but then in his description he states: "paint loss on the handset"

WHAT?!

I can remember when all I ever saw was Black black or black. My grandfather used to say, you can get a model T in any color you want, as long as its black.. the same went for phone's until the 60's, then I started seeing colored phone's, that weren't black.

....your grandfather was Henry Ford?? ;)

"Henry Ford (1863-1947) documented that he made the “any color so long as it is black” comment during a meeting in 1909 (Henry Ford in collaboration with Samuel Crowther in My Life and Work. 1922. Page 72)"

No, but it did begin with H. I just remembered him saying that, when I was putting a extension phone in the living room for him, and it was beige.

Good Ol' Henry had a few sayings that stuck around! I think that was his most popular.

Yea, after much thought, I remember him saying that's what Henry said at some point.
