“Did I tell you about this morning when this guy sat down on the other side of the tree from me? Next thing you know, three cherry tops show up and the cops pop out and I say to myself: ‘What did I do this time?’  Turns out they’re looking for the other guy. Well, I’m glad I got out of that one.”

“So I gotta tell you this. You know I wasn’t here yesterday, right?  Well, yesterday, apparently this guy comes barreling up the sidewalk on his bike, grabs onto one of those big new gas BBQs just outside Home Hardware there, and tries to make a break for it. Turns out that’s the guy who’d been casing the store all last week but — you see — the guy tries to make the heist on the one day I’m not down here. Anyway, luckily he didn’t get away with it.

“The people in these stores know one thing — if Tony’s on the street, there won’t be trouble.”
