            The phone rang.

            Tammy pouted. “It’s probably for Bobbie.”

            “She’s on a date,” said Grandma. “Go answer the Ameche.”

            “The A-what-chee?”

            The ringing stopped.

            “That’s what we called the telephone when I was a girl.” Grandma popped a VHS tape in the VCR. “Sit. I’ll make popcorn.” 

            “‘The Story of Alexander Graham Bell?’” Tammy read the case and groaned. “This movie’s older than dirt.”   

            Bobbie came home just as Don Ameche and Loretta Young exchanged loving smiles. “What’s with the black and white moldy oldie?”

            The phone rang.

            “Rad flick.” Tammy brushed a stray tear. “Better answer the Ameche, sis.”
