Publisher's Summary

When the Southern Bells brought the telephone to rural North Carolina, it looked like a "big black daffodil". What the telephone company had not counted on in conceiving its eight-party line service was a pair of "past-middle-age, unmarried sisters", the chatty Misses Lucy and Lena Leatherwood. Once the Leatherwood sisters were connected by the Southern Bells, nobody else on that line had a chance!

This recording also includes Davis' hilarious story about his first day of school, "Winning and Losing". "My personal plan was to learn to read first thing on the first day," Davis said. "After that, they could go ahead and teach me anything they wanted to."
