Friday Fun: Alphabet of Obsolete

Suzanne Fun


I loved this photo one of my Facebook friends shared with me — a humorous look at things that don’t quite play the same role they used to a decade or so ago. I started wondering  . . . what other inventions are obsolete? So I asked you on Facebook what else is scarce these days. Here are some of things you came up with:

A – Audio tapes (Sharon McClendon Henning)
B – Bottle openers (Terri Kalmbach)
C – Carbon paper (Pam Kowal)
D – Dialing your phone numbers (Judy Smith Moseley MacLaren)
E – Eight track tapes (Karen Johnson)
F – Film projectors (Nancy Dunne Key)
G – Green stamps (Val Link)
H – Human relations (Mary Shipman)

Thank you for joining in the fun! Share more obsolete inventions, beginning with letters I-P, in the comment section for a chance to win Amish Values for Your Family! I’ll post the next set of the alphabet next week and announce the winner.

Speaking of winners, the winner of last week’s Friday Fun is Amy Bateman! Email your mailing address to to claim your prize.
