So no one, including me, knows what you are on about.
Vinyl? Which world are you living in? Real record players play shellac
discs. We had one my father bought at an auction that even had with it
some old Columbia discs that were recorded at 80rpm -- and the player
had a setting for that.
79 cents a gallon on Long Island, NY in 1998 or thereabouts.
Mechanical adding machines, then electronic calculators. The first
4-function electronic calculator I saw cost approx. $100.

Shucks, thought I was close. If Big Carlos Pass bridge it the tallest
one on that route (old age has me) - I dove from the peak, into the
channel. Was that 70 - 80 foot dive? Water feels like concrete at
that height, even head first.
Anyway, those are stomping grounds. I hear tell Bonita Springs is
becoming a metropolis.
It is solid now from South Ft Myers to Naples. Estero went from 2000
people to 20,000 in 10 years. It isn't just the light at Corkscrew
now. Bonita is a city but the Pipers and the Nelsons are still running

Dang. As a kid, Ft Myers was a population of 25,000.
We took a ferry over to Sanibel Island, before the bridge. The Edison
bridge was the only path across the river in those days...
Dad worked on some of the later bridges (Sanibel, Cape Coral). He
worked to build some of the first 1,000 (?) homes in Cape Coral.
LOL - people should visit Corkscrew swamp.
Don't blame him- if it was inside all of its life, it should be good for
another 40 years. I foolishly stored most of my collection of 'real'
phones like that in the outside storage cubby of the apartment I used to
live in, and the humidity got to a lot of them and rusted them
internally. I hardly ever see real phones at garage sales any more, so
I am reduced to mixing pieces and parts together when I need to come up
with a running one.
