Long distance is the next best thing to being there, but a dove in love would rather reach out and touch someone. Spring is in the air and all lines are busy, with local calls as the wooing and cooing commence. HELLO, LOVEY, THIS IS DOVEY. Fly away, buster, you've got a wrong number. Dauntless Dovey dials some different digits. HELLO, LOVEY, THIS IS DOV - Dovey, I thought you'd never call! Come on over and let's get acquainted - person to person.
