CCC176: The Move

Oh, what a flurry there was amongst the residents when Tud Hopper brought back the news.

“A ‘legal paper’ slapped on us?”

“Not on us. On our home,” Tud Hopper said.

“But…but…” no one could spit out the words.

“Reggie Gardener won’t allow it to happen,” Betty said, and stood firm on that.

“Reggie Gardener is dead,” Tud Hopper said. “And has been these great many years.”

It was agreed, they must find a new home, one and all.

“I’m not moving,” said Betty. “I’ve roots that dig deep.”

Tud Hopper nodded but wouldn’t say. It was because of Betty Birch that they were facing this woeful day.

    Very good Crispina. I often think the purpose of 150 words is to ask more questions than answers. You have certainly posed many for me.

  6. This is so interesting, Crispina. I feel like Betty has dementia or memory issues and forgot
    to pay her bills. More Please … of course, when your schedule lightens. LOL

    Love it, Crispina! Her roots have dug deep and her crown has gone through the roof! She has taken over, Betty has 🙂
