The Colonel Is Gone

July 10th, 2011 · No Comments · Family Life

A couple of years a USAF Colonel bought the house across the street from us.   We knew his first name, but we didn’t know his last name, but we still called him Colonel.

It was a lovely house, having been redone by the woman who owned it before the Colonel.

We waved to one another when we saw one another on the street.  He shared his snow shovel with us when it snowed.  He was gone a lot.

Last week a moving truck came and started packing him up.  By the end of the week, he was gone.

I was hoping he would stay for awhile.  I hope he at least got a nice promotion out of the deal.  It has made me surprisingly sad.
