Mystery Caller

This morn one of my cell phones showed 3 incoming calls from the same number
at same time.
2:53 a.m.
Who calls at this hour?
This definitely must’ve been a wrong number.
Area code states ‘not a toll-free┬ánumber’ a.k.a. legitimate one.
Um, mystery continues; detective grannie needs to do more research.
I’m aware of the ‘one ring scam’ and the ‘callback’ which earns the
initial caller cash.
Thus, I never reply to unrecognized numbers nor texts.
I’m thankful I turn off, silence the phones at a reasonable hour.
‘Do not disturb ole grannie.’
Noon hour and still perplexed I decided to call myself to check
the voicemail storage box.
I listened to the recording I’d made ages ago and thought, ‘OMG,
small wonder anyone who called would call back a few more
times consecutively.
In an attempt to be humorous, I’d stated, “You have reached the number
of Grandma Moses, please leave a message.”
If you are unaware this famous lady at the advanced age of 78 took
her painting more seriously and began a successful career in Art.
She’s an inspiration to follow of the adage ‘never too old, never give up.’

Homophones ~ Gray and Grey

Words that sound alike and spelled different create confusion.

Imperative to solve the mystery of ‘gray vs. grey’ usage in the
world of color I finally did a quick Google search.

It appears each of the two have the same meaning only are
spelled differently – what a dilemma.

‘Gray’ is quite common in the United States and ‘grey’ signifies
the color in other English-speaking countries.

Puzzle solved and now I know why the squirrel in my Fairyland
App garden is proceeded by the adjective ‘grey’.

Many of the ladies who play this game are from the United Kingdom.

What is your preferred spelling of this word used mostly as an
adjective and sometimes used as a noun or verb in your country?
