Over-Due"Congratulations Hollis! You are officially retired," Harriet said as she greeted him at the door.Hollis Hothington was a pudgy old fellow who adored wearing sweater vests and the old civil war cap his father gave him. Today was his last day directing the library, and he cleaned out his office. He dropped the two boxes he carried by the door and sat down in his favorite chair. "Thirty-five years I worked at that library, Harriet. I will miss working there
On the bright side, I found things in my office I thought were lost forever," Hollis told Harriet as she rummaged through his boxes looking for something that might be hers.Harriet Hothington was a tall, skinny woman who wore loose-fitting khakis and a gardener's hat. She spent most of her time tending to the greenhouse next to their old colonial home.She brought the boxes over to the sitting area, and the Hothingtons went through Hollis' office possessions. The first box was mainly full of photos and office supplies.
