Plot Summary
An elderly veteran (the Colonel), waits for his pension patiently, hoping it will come in each Friday's mail, even as his wife suffers from asthma, and he attends to a valuable gamecock that belonged to their son, who was killed over it. The whole world, or at least the town they live in, seems to be against this elderly couple.
