PROMO 660 x 440 People - Slim Randles

A bunch of us went to the races up in the city the other day. Windy won a little, but the rest of us just kinda broke even, and we got to yell and cheer, so I guess that can cost two bucks without hamstringing the entire regiment. It was fun.

It was Thursday again. Mabel Adams asked at the desk to be sure.

"Thursday all day, Mabel," the girl said. "Don't forget to get your hair done today. Two o'clock ... right?"

"Right," Mabel said, locking the time away in her mind. "Two o'clock. On Thursday."

She took her purple walker and went half a block to the counter at the drug store.

That nice Williams girl came over with a smile and a menu.

"Tuna on toast, Mrs. Adams?"

"Uh, sure. I like that."

"Hot tea?"

"Yes please."

"I took Duckworth to the dog show up in the city last weekend," Dud said.

The other members of the Mule Barn truck stop's world dilemma think tank and philosophy counter just looked at him.

Doc put it gently. "Dud, was this so he could get some inspiration on looking good?"

Desdemona died sometime in the night. Aunt Ada had had the cat since she was a tiny kitten, and she was naturally heartbroken. So was Boots, Desdemona's partner in crime and play and food and everything else that makes life worthwhile for two old cats.

Through her tears, Aunt Ada wondered if she could've noticed something or had done something differently that would have given Desdemona back to her for a while longer, but there just wasn't anything. The cat had looked good at bedtime, and was gone before the sun came up.

This is going to be good, Dud thought, bringing his new tarp out to the car. There it was on that computer site. How to camp out with just a single tarp. I've been looking for something like that for a long time now. Amazing what you can find on the internet.

He couldn't get Anita to go with him, because she just didn't have the same outdoor curiosity that Dud had. Hey, it's kinda scientific in a way, you know.

"You don't mean it!"

"Sure as I'm sittin' here, Doc," Herb said, putting an extra swirl to his coffee and cream.

"Flying lessons?"

"Yessir. Said he wanted to do it before he got old. I know. I know. He's already old, but still, he's up about every weekend now, buzzing around."

"That's just nuts," Doc said, "I know for a fact he won't see 70 again."

"True enough, Doc, but you know they aren't letting him take the plane up by himself."

"Thank goodness for that. But what in the world made him want to fly a plane?"
