Last Night

This picture was made by Tom the last night Mom and Dad visited in Virginia. There are four generations here, great-grand parents, grandma, daughter and great-grand children! I am sure everyone recognizes us all!

What happens when you dial the wrong number?

Zack called and left a message this morning about 8:40 and said he wanted to have breakfast when he came over. He, Maddie and Jake were coming for their monday morning visit. I didn't bother to call back, as I knew they'd be over soon.

About 30 minutes later, a very flustered Becky arrived, with a sheepish Zack. The first thing out of her mouth was, "You need to change your phone number". It seems, when Zack dialed the number (he is learning to dial himself) he hit one of the numbers wrong, so he hung up. He then dialed and left the message I heard. In the meantime, Becky got into the shower. A few minutes later Zack came to the bathroom door and said, "Mom, there is a man at the door." Becky was expecting the contractor who is doing their garage renovation, so she told him that was ok, she'd be out in a bit, don't open the door. She continued her shower, but when she got out and opened the bath roon door, Zack was standing there with a worried look on his face. He said, "Mom, the man is still there, and he's a policeman."

Well, Becky hoped into her clothes, ran downstairs, and opened the door, and two patrolmen were about to walk around the house and try to get in, since the kids wouldn't open the door. There first question to her was, "Is everything all right?"It seems, when Zack dialed my phone number, which begins 915 - he actually dialed 911, and then hung up. He knew that wasn't right. She said the fact her hair was dripping wet seemed to convince them the story was right. What a morning!
