Forever. Why use a cell phone that automatically adjusts the time to call a number to get the time?!?

You can also use the sun. Not today though.

Last time was the 80's...

I use nist1-lv.ustiming.org for the correct time...

Or I glance towards my TW cable converter box / look at my cell...

I still use Capitol -6 -3232. First phone number I ever knew. I live out and just use it to make sure my phone is still working. (kinda sad I guess!) It can't be the same operator. Sounds like her but she would have to be really old!

I called it once last year when we were living in NC because I missed TX so much. Sometimes when I think something isn't working right on my phone I'll use it as a "test" call. Weird how ingrained it is in my mind. I never forgot it those years I wasn't living in SA. Seems like the temps always way lower then it actually is where I live. I think it might be all those trees by the bank downtown.
