Our new home building was more like a town than an new home complex.
Everyone knew all the people and all the people knew all the people’s business.
The only people who reMained an enigma, was the 85 year seasoned couple that lived on the bottom floor. They were considered senile and most of the youngsters were afraid of them. He would grumble and growl at the youngsters when they came near and she would just stand and keep her mouth quiet. I laughed a single day when I happened to hear him growl and I couldn’t help but guess he sounded like our dad. His wifey started to smile and she looked up at myself and others and winked. I sat down on the step near her. She asked myself and others how long I had lived here and I told her it had been almost several months now. She wanted to feel why I wasn’t afraid of them. I shrugged and said they reminded myself and others of her Grandparents and that her husband reminded myself and others of our own dad. Both of us began to talk and she told myself and others her husband had retired from his Heating, Ventilation & A/C contractor about fifteen years ago. He had gone deaf and since he was seventy, it was time to retire. Their grandson now owned the Heating, Ventilation & A/C contractor and he was doing a fantastic task. She said he set up the HVAC system system in the building and if I had any concerns, I should call her. I l gained that it was her child who now ran the building, despite the fact that she and her husband owned it. She also said that her grandson, who owned the Heating, Ventilation & A/C contractor, had a 25 year seasoned child who was single.
