Zombie Drabble #375 “Adeline”

She’s been blind since they nuked Dallas. Not much in the way of burns, but she got knocked around some. She’s a tough old bird, never took any shit from anybody.

I remember once, late ‘80’s, somebody tried to snatch her purse away from her on the sidewalk here in town. Some kid. I think it turned out to be Ross Meaker’s boy. Anyway, she hit him so hard upside the head with her cane he ended up over at Doctor Reager’s with eight stitches.

She was already old then; anyhow, old to us. She might just yet outlive me.
