    ...the telephone calls from our household. (Generally, my wife calling her mother or other family members.)

    And that's just by sheer number of calls.

    If you add to this the fact that each call lasts about an hour or two, you can imagine why this might be a concern in our household

    A few years ago, my wife would spend $80 or so for a single call. And she paid a couple thousand dollars just to have her neighborhood wired for telephone. (Not just the last 50 feet, as they say, but she's the one who actually paid the city for telephone wires to be strung into the neighborhood, and for the whole neighborhood to be hooked up for telephone service.)

    Today, calling cards allow her to talk for hours for a couple of dollars, and you better believe that she takes advantage of that fact.
