Even though it was still winter Blanche had a serious case of spring fever. She grabbed her cane and took off down the walk. It was a glorious day and she was glad to feel the sun on her face.
She decided to stop by the local garage and check on all the latest town gossip. Most people thought women liked to gossip but after working with mostly men all her life Blanche knew they were the real gossip hounds.
The door to the garage was open and as she approached Blanche could clearly hear dialogue from one of her all time favorite movies. “Watching Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid again Max?” she asked as she entered. Max paused the movie and laughed, “I bet I still haven’t seen it as many times as you have Blanche.” Blanche joined in the laughter, “We’re birds of a feather Max. A movie with either Paul Newman or Robert Redford in it is a good movie, together they’re a treasure.”
Blanche settled into one of the large armchairs in the office. “Want some coffee lady?” Max asked. Blanche nodded. “And how about some of this new sugar and spice creamer?” Blanche shook her head “It’s full of artificial flavoring Max, just a bit of real milk will do.” “Ask and it is given” Max said with a flourish as he handed Blanche a giant mug.
“So Max what’s the latest round town?” Blanche started laughing before Max responded, his stories were always entertaining. “The new reporter at Haystack News just did a pictorial on the gargoyles at the old library. He spent hours climbing trees to get the perfect perspective before he realized he was shooting with a broken camera. You’d think that was the dumbest thing to happen this week but Corky Cornfield had every cop in town running around in circles.” Blanche was laughing so hard she had to set her coffee mug down. “Not the coyote again!” “Oh yes” Max shouted, “the coyote again. I can’t believe Chief Chowder still responds with such enthusiasm. The whole county knows that every time Corky gets drunk he thinks the damn dog is a coyote.”
”What about the mayoral campaign Max? How’s that going?” Max was practically jumping up and down in his chair with delight. “Oh Blanche! DC’s got nothin’ on us. The campaign trail is becoming littered with nuts. Dick Sourpower has decided to throw his hat in the ring.” Blanche couldn’t hide her surprise. “Dick Sourpower!? But he’s such a …. a …” “A dick?” Max asked. “Yes Max, a dick. Remember when he tried to close down the local theater because he was afraid all the actors were gay? Max shook his head over and over. “Well Dick thinks he has a new scandal now. He wants to sue the new Middle Eastern market. Swears their food causes premature baldness.” “But Dick’s not going bald” Blanche said. “I know darling, I know. His wife is.”
