Janet started filling in the blanks. She lived upstairs with her father, Dr. Haizenhaufer, whom she couldn’t stand because he was too happy. He’d had four wives, all of whom had left him because of his unrelenting joy. Janet herself had never had a boyfriend and admitted she had little hope of finding the love of her life.

As soon as the car stopped, Gabrielle flew into the house to see if the phone worked, which happily it did.

And so the excursion ended with another summer success story — a day spent in the past to get a little break from the present. And with that, I handed Gabrielle an old, blank address book I’d been keeping and she squealed at the prospect of filling it — using, of course, the contacts she has stored in her cell phone.
