One difference - we knew all 4 parties on the line. Saturday night entertainment
was known as "rubbernecking".

Milk was delivered in a bucket by whoever was assigned to do the morning 
Eggs arrived the same way.

Weather was forecast by whether or not we could smell the pulp mill in Lewiston.
If we could, it was going to rain & we worked around the clock to get the
hay/wheat/barley/whatever into the barn before the rain hit. Meals were
"takeout", delivered to be eaten on the truck/tractor/combine as we worked.
