And the days dwindle down to a precious few. Have you noticed leaves turning gold? We have, way back in the yard. Meanwhile dear readers,writers, friends, we have our fun Sunday. I continue with Housebroken where Sally and Steve Atwood arrive in the quaint town of River’s Edge upstate NY with the help of Mother, their treasured GPS voice. The sound of waterfalls hitting against rocks in a stream just out of sight is appealing. A shop with the sign Pet Emporium looks charming but they don’t have a pet. Time for that later. Steve peers in the window of Trumbull Realtor where a woman waves for them to come in.
excerpt in eight:
Trumbull Realtor’s had wood paneled walls and carpeted floors with a lemon scent in the air and the busy office had several clients leaning over desks, pointing at pictures and asking questions of the staff.
“I’m Claudia Wilcox; sit you down and rest a spell while I see how I can make your life better.”
Steve exchanged glances with Sally and said “We just came up north to see what River’s Edge is all about.”
With the kindest smile they’d ever seen, Claudia said,”We’re all about value and the good life.”
“First, I must tell you we’re just looking since we own a home in Rockland County and all of a sudden my wife,” he touched Sally’s hand, “tells me the house is too big now that the kids have grown up and moved out.”
Sally added,”And before they decide to move back in so subject to selling our home, we’d like two bedrooms, two baths, a kitchen big enough for two and I’d like a room with a sun roof and also a small deck and a yard in case we ever get a dog.”
Steve frowned,“What’s with a sun roof? The sun’s outside where it belongs; you want sun, go out where the sun is.”
After watching her husband fill out forms with information needed about finances, Sally reached for his hand knowing what came next when he sheepishly said, “Sorry honey, I know we’ve come to the right place and if you really want a sun roof, it’s yours.”for more snippets from talented writers:
