The Ollie Chronicles (2)

In today’s mail, I got
a postcard with postage
due, from none other
than Ollie “The Village
Idiot.” It had a Chicago

The message that he wrote:
“Been hopping freight trains.”
He adds: “It was free and lots
of fun, until I got caught by
the railroad police.”

Ollie was brought to a Chicago
precinct, and was where he was
from. He told the seargent that
was from the Boston area.

That is all he said, so hopefully
he will drop me a note, and let
me know what else is going on.

A fictional short story.

Police Work At Its Best

From the email inbox:

Two policemen call the station on the radio:

“Hello. Is that the Sarge?”


“We have a case here. A woman has shot her husband for stepping on the floor
she has just mopped clean.”

“Have you arrested the woman?”

“No sir. The floor is still wet.”
