“Albie actually picked this development up after it went under,” Foster said. “For a song, of course.”

Hey! Albie Rose was a singer? I’d never have guessed that. Lately Bernie and I have been listening a lot to Buddy and Julie Miller, especially What You Gonna Do Leroy. We knew a Leroy – Leroy LaRue, a real sharp-dressing perp, now wearing an orange jumpsuit. Plus there’s a lot of Hawkshaw Hawkins recently – Lonesome 77203. We’ve had other periods of lots of Hawkshaw Hawkins – they come and go.

“Like to take a little tour of the place?” Foster said.

“What for?” said Bernie.

“I thought you were interested in what was happening to the Valley,” Foster said. “That’s the word on you, anyway.”

“Yeah?” said Bernie. “What else have you heard?”

“You’re smart,” the sheriff said, a bit louder. “You can figure it out.”

“That’s not going to work, Earl,” Bernie said. “Try some – “ Bernie’s cell phone rang. He answered. “Janie? Have to call you back. Kind of busy right – “

He listened. I could just hear the sound of Janie’s voice – one of my favorite voices – but couldn’t make out what she was saying. Have I mentioned Janie? She’s the best groomer in the Valley, has a great business with a great business plan: Janie’s Pet Grooming Service – We Pick Up and Deliver. Loved Janie, and she hadn’t picked me up in way too long. She even brushes my teeth! The fun we have with that, let me tell you.

Was there something about Patsy Cline down at the bottom part? We’re big fans, me and Bernie. Lately he’s been listening to that song of hers He Called Me Baby Baby a lot. He says she died in the same plane crash as Hawkshaw Hawkins. Lonesome 77203 – that’s another favorite.
