  • Mildred was the town gossip and self-appointed monitor of the town’s morals. She kept sticking her nose into other people’s business. Several people obviously did not approve of her extra-curricular activities, but feared her enough to maintain their silence.

    She made a mistake, however, when she accused George, a new resident, of being an alcoholic after she saw his old blue pickup parked in front of the town’s only bar one afternoon. She emphatically told George and others, that everyone seeing it there would know exactly what he was doing.
