The Neighborhood Sensation
Three Nights in August. A Short Story.
August 10, 1989 — Ealy’s Porch, Richfield, MN
Lawn chairs squatted in their usual places on the redwood stained deck that abutted Ealy’s large split-level house. Two were occupied, one by Bud Ealy and a second by Frank Bowman, neighbor from across the street. From spring through fall the chairs remained out, along with the beer.
