Anything might happen. I made the tour of the Field Club and Hanscom Park area, sticking to the sidewalks this time. A large home with a frontage on Thirty-second Avenue extends all the way to Thirty-third–it stole my breath again as it always does. How many times would I circle around without being noticed? After a thorough examination of the surrounding homes and their private walks, I estimated all properties were wonderful, although they appeared slightly driven to madness by their own beauty. These are my recommended tonics. With a heavy heart, there was another spring with still no sign of children playing outside. No one to be called in for dinner or even whistled to. I pretended an older gentleman in his sideyard asked me, that early evening, if I was going to join in the fete. His fine gathering of rabbits and squirrels left no doubt this was the place to be. I smiled in my mind and said, “I do hope so. That is why I’ve worn this festive cloche.”
We’ve now got a follow-up to this story: Closer to 1916 South 32nd Avenue.
