The status of the phone
Perhaps you heard that Dad put their phone through the washer? I ordered Mom and Dad a new phone, another Jitterbug, but it had some fault and I had to return it. The company is sending me a new one. I hope to have Mom and Dad re-connected within a week. Dad doesn't like to use the land line---too expensive. And Mom enjoys using the phone. She particularly likes to play "walkie-talkie" with me when I visit. She calls me across the dining room table incessantly repeating my "How are you?" etc. And she laughs. Another joke, I guess. Their number will remain the same, by the way.
