How Does THAT Work? Telephones!

The latest PUZZLE that I have FIGURED out is how the TELEPHONE works. I ADMIT that this one took me a LONG time to SOLVE. TELEPHONES are sort of CONFUSING, until you FIGURE out the INNARDS.

SEE? Inside the part that you TALK into, there is a RECORDING device. This is how the HANDLE of the TELEPHONE would look if you had X-RAY EYES! I made an ARROW in case you MISSED the RECORDER inside.
THEN, the TAPE goes along the TELEPHONE WIRES. This is just an ILLUSTRATION, because in REAL life, the TAPE moves faster than you can SEE! The speed of the TAPE is called the SPEED OF SOUND!
The CASSETTE TAPE gets to the RECEIVER on the OTHER phone. And then it PLAYS BACK!
Things are pretty SIMPLE when you figure them OUT!

We would also like to share hugs with our friends today during this time of sadness. Goodbye, sweet Luxor, Eric, Molly and tiny Wintergreen. May you rest in peace.

Grieve not,
nor speak of me with tears,
but laugh and talk of me
as if I were beside you.
Twas heaven here with you,
I loved you so.

Harley, you are one of the smartest mancat's that we know!!! We always wondered how the telephone worked!

We also read the blogs about the 4 kitties who have gone to their mansions on the other other side of the Bridge. The poem that you left for them is one of our favorites. When mom's friend died in the spring, that was the poem used on the memorial pamphlet.

Purrs,

Harley, THANKS for figuring out how the telephone works! We have been wondering about it forever - we knew you would be the one to figure it out! And we love the illustrations because they really help us understand even better!! We can't wait to see what you tell us about next time! We just love your How Does THAT Work so much!

And we are also so sad about the kitties who had to leave. It is posts like these, the silly posts, that are so good to have in times like this - they help remind us that even though there are bad times, there are happy times too.

Forever Foster said...

Harley, we would be in the dark about so much if you weren't on the job of figuring it all out. You're one smart kitty.
Your poem was lovely.
