The mail carrier has just brought me my latest eBay purchase, Happy Birthday Person to Person. For those of you less than about half a century old, “person-to-person” is an old telephone term. You could either call “station-to-station”, which basically means that you get charged for the call when anyone answers the phone, or “person-to-person”, where you get charged a higher price, but only once you reach the specific individual you were trying to call.
In this little 4″ x 5.5″ book from 1972, part of the Hallmark “Thoughtfulness Library” series of basically hard-cover greeting cards, Charlie Brown gets a phone call from someone who tells him he’s wonderful and witty and charming and… SPOILER ALERT … it turns out the call isn’t for him, it’s for you!
I kinda like this cute little books. I kind of wish they were still around for their original use. And still cost $1.
