The little old lady sat on the couch. Two cats slept on her lap. The other snuggled next to her feet. Three flights of steps separated the old lady and her arthritic legs from the world. But the little lady did not mind. Meals came on wheels once a day, cabbage stew and soup, no salt. All in all the little old lady was quite content, she waited for her son, the last of three. He would return one day as he had promised and help her cross the gulf that were the three flights of steps.
