That wasn't the only local scandal. One afternoon around lunch we noticed that the Sheriff was at Miss Mary Jane's house. At first we (and by we I mean mostly the adults not really the kids) wondered what could be going on. It couldn't be a true emergency because he hadn't shown up with lights or sirens. Perhaps she had gotten in trouble. Imagine the surprise when the Sheriff seemed to be showing up every day at lunch time. I can distinctly remember my grandmother peeking out the window and saying, "He's back gain Pat" to my aunt. It was something so gossip worthy that my grandmother talked about it for decades.
So a word to the wise- if you want to be good friends with someone every day at lunch, you might not want to travel there in the Sheriff's car.
