“Now you take this damned medicine like you should,” He told me good heartedly. “We are going to one day get you well.”
“Sorry about not locking the doors last night.”
“Now dammit!” He said. “We live in a crazy world and people will kill you without a second thought for your material possessions.”
The last time a murder was committed in this small town it was by a mauling pit-bull years ago. I don’t understand Charlie’s scariness. There haven’t been any recent crime waves here in decades.
“I got Jimmy James to install Maggie’s dog door today,” Charlie then told me. “You are going to have to teach her to use it.”
“She will,” I say to assure Charlie. “She’s as smart as a button.”
“Well, I don’t want that damn dog to be shitting all over your new house. I’ve put a lot of damn work into it as well.”
I laughed. Charlie gave me a hug and then drove on home. I walked inside with a big smile on my face. Charlie is so high strung.
