This brought back a lot of memories of the party line...and neighborly neighbors. The dialogue was easy to follow, I enjoyed this.

I was truly entertained by the story. The only thing that troubled me was party lines being in the same time frame as 911. Having worked for the telephone company back when there were party lines I know it was many years before 911. Of course, there could be a party line or two still out there after 911 service was established.
Good story.

Wow! talk about living in each othes pockets. Found the beginning a bit too complicated to sort out for a simple Englishman. But sorted things out later, thanks for sharing your enlightening story of a party line that fortunately I've never been party to.
This was a fun story to read. I don't think you had to tell us this story would be life changing for your MC. You showed us that it was quite well. Good job!
