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.
