I used to watch The Rockford Files in the 1970's as a kid.  That Jim Rockford has touchtone phones and an answering machine.  Man that was living!  I was gonna have me an answering machine when I grew up, yes sir.

Of course now I'm often tempted to throw the answering machine away.

If you're a long way from home,
Can't sleep at night.
Grab your telephone,
Something just ain't right.

I still watch and love the Rockford Files.  I was always bummed that he had touch tones though.  I tried awhile back to buy a reel-to reel answering machine that came with a pink 500 on eBay some time back.  I thought that would have been a neat toy to have.
I am a lineman for the county and I drive the main roads. Searchin' in the sun for another overload.  I hear you singin' in the wires, I can hear you through the whine, and the Witchita Lineman is still on the line.
