Do these old gentleman, there are 3 of them, 70 years a piece, do they realise, they feed off each other? This time, they spend together.. I have watched them for weeks. The same time, every day.. Do they realise, the bond they carry? The highlight, that this meeting is? As they discuss current events, through the vehicle of the news paper. Do they understand the events? No, but each of their perspectives is fought for and against, all the same conclusion, as their pens hover over the same crossword, never borrowing an answer, choosing to leave the spaces, blank, instead, as the clues rake against their lives, tilling memories forgotten, as ghosts wander the farm.
