Bernie took out some money. It had recently passed through the hands of a woman – I smelled perfume on the bills. Actually the same kind of perfume that Tulip wears. Tulip works for Livia Moon in the back part of her coffee place in Pottsdale. Livia Moon gave Bernie a real big kiss the last time we were there. It all goes back a long time to when Bernie was at Fort Hood, wherever that may be, and Livia was running a little nearby operation “to cheer up the boys,” she said. Is all that in To Fetch A Thief? Some? Any? Meanwhile the perfume scent was overpowering that other scent, very faint anyway, but important in this line of work. For any newcomers out there maybe this is the time to mention that we’re partners, me and Bernie, in the Little Detective Agency. Got any missing people in your life? That’s our specialty. Get in touch. We could use the money, on account of the way our finances are a mess. First came Hawaiian pants. Then tin futures. Tin futures turned out to be kind of complicated. Something happened in Bolivia, or maybe not Bolivia. Name some other place like that.
Meanwhile, Bernie and Foster were talking. The sound was kind of pleasant. Of course I always like hearing Bernie talk: he has a beautiful voice.
