ya know it's kinda fun around this empty gym. (leaning his dustmop against a folding chair.) i played a piano once. (sitting down on a shop cloth-striking an old familiar chord)

"last saturday nite we got married
me and my wife settled down,
now me and my wife are parted
gonna take another stroll downtown.

ireeene goodnite,irene goodnite,
goodnite irene, goodnite irene -
i'll see you in my dreams"

oh hello clancy, you know ya oughtn't sneak upon a guy like that, you'll scare me to blue one day.
what do you wanna sing? oh i know one -

(half hour later, the gym is ringing with harmony)
"they will take me to new jail tomorrow,
which will leave my poor darlin alone,
with these cold prison bars all around meeeeee,
and my head on a pillow of stone.

oh if i had the wings of an angel,
o'er thse close prison bars i would fly.
i would fly to the arms of my darlinnn,
and there i'd be wiiiilliin to dieeeeee"

well much as i hate to, i suppose.
you know clancy, i meant to ask you - "how fast will that squad car go anyhow? oh say if you got on it from the campground all the way to the industrial park turnoff? figure about 80?" whuddaya mean what am i driving at? heck i dust down the top bleachers too, and there's windows up there!
"110? wow, i'da swore you weren't going over 80. course its a ways out there."
"oh before you get away -- i was wondering if the widder larsen would mind fixing some donuts for the elders meeting. whut? well why not ask you? heck your squad car was parked under the streetlite in the alley behind her place 3 nites this week - you were stopping for donuts, weren't you? oh cmon, there's windows on that side of the gym too and i'm not yer average dummy. no, i don't think she'd mind a bit. and thanks for the jam session clancy - enjoyed it. (leaning on the dustmop again) lazy old fart couldn't offer to help me dust, could he? what the widder larsen sees in that man....(whistling :)
