Last night my dad came in from Illinois and stayed the night at our house before heading back home with Lydia. During the night, our dog Daisy Mae apparently forgot he was there and started barking and jumping on me when she heard his bed creak, which startled me out of a dead sleep and I grabbed for the phone to call 911 while screaming for my dad like I did when I was 7. This in turn woke Lydia up who was sleeping peacefully right beside me and she started shaking as dad lumbered out of his room confused and stumbling in the dark. All the while Daisy stood off to the side with a look that said she regretted getting this whole circus started. It was a typical Lightner moment.

LOL! I can picture the scene. As I've told your folks repeatedly, a book needs to be written of the many and varied Lightner exploits over the years.
