Two Men and a Window

Two men, both seriously ill, occupied the same hospital room.  One man was allowed to sit up in his bed for an hour each afternoon to receive his daily medical treatment.  His bed was next to the room’s only window.  The other man had to spend all his time flat on his back.  The men talked for hours on end.  They spoke of their wives and families, their homes, their jobs, their involvement in the military service, and where they...

Case of the Mondays

It is the start of the week. Monday… Every day I go to breakfast at the Rice Palace here in Crowley. There I have started to know a lot of the people that are there.
