No, not Alka-Seltzer (for those who remember Speedy, "Plop, plop, fizz, fizz...")
After the previous days' concern, and still not getting through to my fiance's home in Pucallpa yesterday afternoon (he would be at work, but his elderly parents should have been home), I connected with one of his nieces via Facebook (her father - my brother-in-law - had also been with them Sunday), and she told me she'd seen everyone and they were all fine, that it must just be a phone issue. I continued trying to calland finally heard my mother-in-law answer last night. She said aside from two calls that were wrong numbers, the phone hadn't rung all day! Yet there I'd been trying on and off! It wasn't yet 8:30 and so Levi wasn't home yet, so she told me to try in a half hour. I was reluctant to hang up, I tell you! But I called at 9, and got through with great relief. He said he had the same problem when he tried calling home from work - ring, ring, ring, ring, no answer, and of course it had HIM worried. Papito is 80 and not in the best of health, although God bless him, he does continue some little carpentry work around the house!
Anyway, had a nice long (40 minute) talk with him and put my concerns to rest.
They DO need a new phone though!
