Windy Wilson was next, unofficially of course, and she chose a topic for the coffee counter that was based on learned truths and beauty. We kinda took turns, without keeping score.
“Ya know,” “Said the old camp chef” “Been thinkin’.”
We gave him just a few seconds. Didn’t work.
“About what, Windy?” “Doc”
“’bout leisuractuvely activities. You know, what to do when you ain’t doin’ nothin’ else.”
We sipped while giggling. Windy, you have a good topic. This is good.
“I like to read catalogs,” Herb. “You can get all kinds of ideas in them. Don’t much care, really, what kind of catalogs, either. So what if I don’t know a thing about wrist watches? I can always learn.”
“With me,” Say Doc “it’s fly fishing. When I’ve had a hard day with lots of patients, I just want to go down to Lewis Creek and whip the surface film into a froth. Doesn’t even matter if I catch anything or not.”
“I hear ya,” Say Dud. “It’s a little different with me. Working on writing that mystery (“Murder in Soggy Bottoms”) takes it outa me, you know? So I like to spend my leisure time reading things other guys wrote. After about an hour of reading what some other poor soul suffered through, I’m ready to go fishing with Doc.”
Doc looked at Windy who initiated the topic but seemed to be content to listen to others’ ideas.
“What about you, Windy? How do you unwind?”
“Well, Doc. Glad you asked. Them kids was on their way home from school jest t’other day and I come crost ‘em when they wasn’t payin’ too much tension. They didn’t seem to have any leisure time, I noticed. So I told ‘em ‘bout my sure-fire way to relax.
“What I do is set down on the front porch and think about fun stuff while I pick scabs off the neighbor’s dog.”
