No one will admit knowing how Windy got permission to
use the police car. All we know is, he did, and some dumb @#$%
showed him how to work the loudspeaker.
“Now you folks’r prolly wonderin’ who it is drivin’
‘round makin’ sure ever-body is bein’ safe today. Yep, it’s me,
Windy Wilson, behind this year mask in the cop car.
“The more ‘sperienced amongst us want to remind you to wash your
hands, wear your mask, and stay away from them rock concerts, okay?
Too many people. Ain’t safe.”
Windy turned right to go around the block. His voice faded a bit,
but that was okay, because we’d been kinda wishing for that off and

can get when he has an audience.
“And …” he continued as he passed the drug store …”when we get all
back to where it’s okay to visit with each other and go back to
school and ever-thin’, I have a tip for you. If you do perambulate
yourself off to a rock concert, take along some hearin’ protection,
‘cuz them guys’ll blow out yer eardrums iffen you don’t. Why, don’t
know for shore if I mentioned it before, but I went to a rock
concert my ownself and saw that Starvin’ Chickens band. You talk
about loud? Took me the best part of two days to stop throbbin.’

“And that reminderizes me of the

songstress? Yep, the very same one’s singin’ up at the Sip ‘n Slump
nightclub in the city. ‘Course, not sure if folks can go in there to
listen at her ‘til this coronary virus gets straightened up, but …
hey, there! Doc is that you divin’ into that doorway with the mask
on? Why, folks, here’s a guy who knows his way around your pesky
virus. Why, I recomember the time me ‘n Doc ….”
