Where’s Carole

Someone was knocking at the front door. He rose like a zombie to answer the summons. His feet moved without any direction from him. Until recently Carole would handle any interruptions from their quiet life. Until today.

Her fever had approached dangerous levels two days ago. Then came the lost of her taste buds. That was a devastating blow to her ego. She basked in the comments of her guests after one of her fantastic dinners.

It was their neighbor Mel.

“Where’s Carole”, he asked

    Hi. my name is Debbie Schoop-Wilson and I knew Carole from Santa Rosa, CA. My husband and I visited you all in NC, but I have since lost track of where in Florida Carole moved to. Can you please give her my email address and ask her to contact me? I would love to hear from her!!! It’s wilson@oreilly.com Thanks

    Hopefully Carole is convalescing in the sun room out back and will be answering the door again soon.

      Same to you. Looks like a couple of cold days here in central Florida and up your way.

    Oh, we are left wondering just where she is! I fear the worst. Then again, I do sense more to that “Where’s Carole?” than you let on!
