Annexed and Developed
When we moved to Suburbia 13 years ago we would wake to a rooster every morning. And then one morning I realized that I hadn't heard the rooster in some time.
And the fields became new developments.
The displaced mole moved into my garden, and we cohabitated for many years.
Our new house is in an "established" neighborhood. This house saw action in WWII.
Real action, as in the influx of families here for shipbuilding jobs.
In some twist of irony this was suburbia here on the hill just above the city 65 years ago.
And at that time Suburbia was farmland.
