Hie next time We got caught running a stop sign or speeding we paid our own charges; we didn't have to break the.law, and they were no longer going to be stuck for our stupidity. He laid it on real thick and k took the first 20 minutes of the meeting. I guess the office manager must have kicked on high road expenses. Ic the next breath, before he got to a pep sates talk, he turned to Wes and I and told us of several jobs we each had to do immediately.

I slowed down for a mile to fish a cigarette out of my box of tailor-mades, and was just going to take off again when the siren almost scared me into the ditch. I'd forgot to watch mj rearview mirror, and there was a police car be- hind me. I stopped in a spray of loose gravel, and got out to see what they wanted. I knew I hadn't been speeding the last mile anyway, there was two of them, nice young fellows from the Blairmore RCMP detach- ment.
