Do you have "land line" phones in all 3 places? When I was in my teens (before cell phones were what they are now) the neighbor fella taught me how to call my own number from my own number.. But I can't remember how we did it now.. His barn was a good distance from the house, so when I'd stop there, he'd ring his house to tell his boy I was there to visit.. Sometimes you'd have to talk over the dial tone, and sometimes not.. (it was all in the timing of button pushing I guess).. I got my first cell phone about 12 years ago, so it's been that long since I've done it to ring mom/dad to tell them I was leaving for town did they need anything blah blah blah.. If I sit here and think long enough, I may remember how we used to do it.. Brad

Funny... When I started reading this post, I remembered a way of calling yourself from my younger days while watching a telephone repairman. I think it was a two digit number to call yourself back. LOL

You would dial 1191, hang up. About 4 seconds pass and then your phones ring.

With the land line, I had phones in the house, dairy barn, and shop. To call within the system, I"d dial our number and hang up. The other phones would ring, in an uneven pattern, indicating that the call was within the system. If it was meal time, I"d just lift the receiver to stop the ringing, and head for the house. No need to wait for the better half to lift the receiver. Still have that system in the house and shop.
