Recycle Wednesday

“When is recycle day?”

Judy Frasier rolled her eyes. “Wednesday,” she shouted from the front of the house. Dear God, the man couldn’t remember anything. Birthdays, anniversaries—he’d forget Christmas if not for all the commercials.

“This Wednesday?” Russ asked, walking into the house with an empty plastic bag in his hands.

“The second and fourth Wednesday of every month, just like the HOA guidelines said when we moved in.” She would dig them out of the filing cabinet and shove them under his nose if she thought it would do any good.

He waved his hand in dismissal. “I’m too busy to keep track.”

Busy? Doing what? Golfing? Swimming in the pool at the rec center around the corner? Attending every estate sale in Twilight, Arizona and bringing home junk he either sold at a loss or she threw out?

Quick Sale Realty

Amy Zimmerman shoved the For Sale sign into the dry, Arizona dirt and hoped today’s open house resulted in a sale. She, or rather, her bank account, needed a quick infusion of funds.

Dusting off her real estate license and signing on at Quick Sale Realty in Twilight, Arizona hadn’t been in the plan. Retirement, golf, mahjong, and pool laps—that had been the plan. But Alan had ruined it with his cockamamie scheme to fix the air conditioner.

She couldn’t file a claim for his life insurance because he hadn’t left a body when he died. Instead, she’d had to lie and report him as missing. Her lawyer had said she might have to wait seven years before declaring him officially dead.

Pickleball

“Ten-Nine-One.”

Leon Pulaski announced the score of the pickleball game to his opponents then served.

One more point, he thought as he waited for their return. The first team to eleven with a two point margin won the game. Leon needed this win. For nine years, he and his partner carried home the Twilight, Arizona Pickleball Championship trophy. If he won ten in a row, the pressure would be off to compete. He wasn’t getting any younger or steadier on his feet.

Artie Schuumaker waited for the ball to bounce then hit it back to him. Buddy Hanson, Leon’s partner, nodded, their signal for Leon to rush the net while he batted back the ball after its second bounce.

He who controls the net wins the game. Leon knew the importance of the third shot. If your opponents kept you to the back of the court, you might as well forfeit.
