Summer 1998
 
While we were still getting used to being home owners, I emerged from several hours of office meetings to hear the following two messages on my voice mail.
 

 

After listening to the two messages one after another, I immediately called home, was greeted by the answering machine, and left instructions for flipping the circuit breaker to the doorbell to allow it to dry out. Two hours later I emerged from another meeting to hear the final uplifting message.
