Scream and Shout, Or...

A while back, I posted about my grandmother, AKA The Old Woman Who Lived in a Shoe--mainly, because she "had so many children, she didn't know what to do". This, of course, was back in the days before video games and Wii, wearing helmets when riding bikes, not talking to strangers...with all those kids, Grandma couldn't exactly stand on the porch and yell all their names when it was dinner time or bed time...so, instead, she relied on an old police whistle. She would stand on the porch and blast it, and my mom and aunts knew that when they heard it, they better drop everything and run home or they would be in trouble (courtesy of my grandfather, no doubt. Grandma knew how to delegate.).
