Been there! And now back again with my mother-in-law. The other day I went over and she had called the phone company to fix the problem. And indeed there was an issue with the line and it was fixed.

My Dad passed away at 99. I used to shrug my shoulders and say he could go bungy jumping and he was old enough to decide. You dad sounds great!

Woman of a certain age. On a good day I am 12 feet tall.
