What Time Is It?

An Apple-Watch? No! A Smart-Watch? No! The old-timer, the great-grandson of an old-time Railroad man, wouldn’t have any of those new-fangled things. He always wore his great-grandpa’s railroad pocket-watch. But when he reached for it to see how long he’d been napping, it wasn’t there. In the morning he’d hooked it to his vest and looped the chain around a button his vest. Then gently placed it in his vest pocket. But no matter which pocket he felt, it just was plain missing.

That’s when he imagined he saw it standing across the field.
