Stuck in the 19th century
Alas! We cannot get phone jacks upstairs! The telephone company would have to run the line on the outside of the house, leaving it to the mercy of foul weather, birds and other creatures, and - as the friendly, helpful, local employee of the phone company pointed out - making the front of the house (and the back) look ugly.
Okay. So now we are back where we started. The upside is that the second floor will remain blessedly quiet.
And if anyone REALLY needs to talk to us, I suppose they'll "leave a message at the tone."
