As always, a giant thank you to Rochelle Wisoff-Fields for her weekly dedication. This week’s photo prompt comes from Sandra Crook (we’ve missed you). As always I welcome honest, constructive feedback; please a comment and tell me what you think.
Memories of June
Clang! The metal walker collided with the hall corner.
“Mr. Murray, you OK?”
A shudder ran down his bent spine, as he righted his footing.
That was close, Buddy! Nearly got us both. Eddie’s voice was tight.
“You’re doing fine; watch that post, dear.”
“That’s a sharp hat you’re wearing again today. Where’d you get this pin?”
The smell of Eddie’s flesh and then silence, as the world erupted.
“Mr. Murray… the pin?”
“It was given to me for the seventieth memorial, at Omaha Beach.”
“Oh, nice. Now let’s get you to the dining room.”
