It was a hot humid day and as Deal looked down at the flower covered coffin he could feel the sweat running down his forehead and temples. All the while wishing the minister would hurry and end the service. Deal hates funerals and does everything he can to avoid them including this one, his mother's funeral. Life didn't turn out the way Deal expected. His life is in shambles. Something in his past is deeply embedded in his soul that makes him unable to cope with everyday life. Most people reminisce about a time when they were young, but Deal is obsessed with it. It's his escape from reality. After the funeral at his mother's home he drifts into a deep sleep. It all comes back, all the adventures he and Benny had the year he turned eleven and Benny turned nine, back when life was so much simpler. The story is an amusing account of Deal and Benny's adventures, trials and tribulations filled with plenty of nostalgia to remind the reader about the simple life of the 1950's before the onslaught of technology.Attached to one of the walls were shelves where some of the pigeons had made their nests. The cage ... How many do you have? ... aI guess when they leave and come back, other pigeons follow them and they decide to stay, a Rudy explained.
