“Her name was Astrid Jason,” said Colonel Bob. “She was old for her age and I was young for mine. That maturity gap sound familiar?”
Bernie laughed. Love human laughter – have I mentioned that already? – and Bernie’s is the best. “Suzie says that if men lived to a hundred and fifty or so they still might not catch up.”
Colonel Bob laughed, too. What was funny? Don’t ask me. “Astrid came from some pretty rough people, the white-lightning type. Her uncle was a buddy of Junior Johnson back in the day. But that’s not the point. The point is she wanted to see me in my brand-new uniform. And then she wanted to see me out of it.”
