One of Lincoln's favorite games is to call up the family and have a nice long conversation with them, usually consisting of "Hello? Hi. How doin' today? Good?" repeated over and over. We have a cordless phone that isn't hooked up and he usually makes his calls from that, but on this particular afternoon the foot pedal from my serger made for an excellent substitute. And yes, Grandpa and Tyee are doing well, thanks for asking!
