This cam up on
Some miss the old telephone ringing.
I miss my old grade school bell chimes in the distant, they are electric now. How about you, what do you miss hearing?

    "Take off your clothes and come over here"
  • When I was a kid there were more tin roofs. Most every back yard shed was covered with that. I loved the sound of rain on a tin roof. You don't hear that much anymore. Speaking of phones not ringing anymore, but chirping instead, my cell phone has a ringer that sounds just like the bells in the phones of yesteryear. I get some strange looks when my phone rings in public.

    Edith yelling "Archieeeeeee!!!"(Bunker)and the theme song from M*A*S*H everynight at 8:00 pm. Two of my all-time favs.

    I have a tin roof in the Coop. Sometimes when I'm out there and a rain comes up it reminds me of tin roofs back in another life. It has to be considered "Good Noise."

    I can't pick out one thing I actually 'miss' hearing but I'm sure I'll know it when I hear it.

  • The whip-o-wills that were in my neighborhood since we moved here in 1965 and disappeared 4 years ago. I used to always declare spring "official" when I heard the first whip-o-will and then enjoy them all summer. That was something that I really thought was a constant and couldn't believe it when I went an entire summer without hearing one. Bummer.

    Sounds of an old manual type writer... with the manual return handle. How about the old mechanical cash registers.

    A live person answering the phones at any Major Corporation you might be calling. Or an AT&T Operator answering when you dial 0.
  • seriously. . .all i hear all day long is noice of some kind or another. . . . sometimes its nice to hear absolutely nothing at all .. .. pretty rare in my life. ...

    otherwise i agree with beli. ..nothing like going to bed at night in a place at the ocean with the windows open and hearing the waves crashing. ...greatest sound in the world!!!!!

    Loved that sound growing up scotty. None in Alabama. Maybe we'll hear them in sarasota in a few weeks.

    p.s. a woodpecker pecking a tin roof will scare you to death the first time you hear it!
  • I had one pecking on the gutter outside my bedroom window for about 3 weeks at about 5:00am. I never could get a shot at that sucker. :angry: :evil:
