He made his way to the given address and was greeted by an older woman. "Mr. Dolby?" I appreciate your arriving so quickly." She walked down the hallway. "I believe you'll find all you need right here. The man we hired to do the restorations had to pull out."
"I'm sure I'll be able to find my way around, Mrs.--"
Dolby looked at her. "Betty Roberts?"

She smiled and the years fell from her. "Somehow I knew you would understand and not dismiss it as an old woman's fancy."
"I'll try to do them justice, Mrs. Roberts," he said reverently opening a box labeled iHands of Time/i.
