The new jail has somebody in each cell this morning.
Mrs. Pemberthy brought them a great breakfast and the Constable should be letting them out soon.
Last night Robert Maki, he’s in cell one, broke a chair over the head of somebody who called him a communist for supporting Obama’s health plan. By the time Constable Ican arrived at the Fly Inn he had broken two more chairs. The Constable seemed to have very little trouble subduing him and hauled him down to the jail to sleep it off.
In the other cell was Fred McManis who threw a whiskey bottle though a mirror at the Happy Pigeon. Fred is an ex-Marine and was harder to subdue.
This morning Constable Ican has bruises and pains he didn’t know came with the job. After Robert promised to pay the Fly Inn for the chairs he sent him home.
But Fred was a different story. Ican offered Fred the assistant Constable position on two conditions:
1. He stay sober
2. He pay for the mirror.
The new assistant would be responsible for patrolling the two bars at night. He had the strength and the training for the job.
So Fred is now the new assistant constable.
Tonight Ican will take a long soak and them splash on plenty of lineament.
