"What`s up?" said Paul, otherwise known as Toad, nicknamed from a character in "The Wind in The Willows." He was the proprietor of Toad`s.
"Well, said Robert as he plopped in a chair,
"The guy that was indispensable last week, me, has just been disposed of."
"That`s something."
"What do you want?"
"Herbal tea."
"Cool mint"
"Sounds good. Also, a brownie."
"Coming right up." Robert relaxed in the comfortable chair as Paul busied himself then served him his tea and brownie.
"What`s next?"
"Guess I`m unemployable. I`ll have to get over that and manage my money better. At least I can cover my March property taxes."
"That`s a thing."
"Yup. What`s new with the book?"
"I keep finding more information from sources of the time." He listed the newly available books from the time of The Spirit Lake massacre and some of the new information hidden for over 150 years in them. It was comforting for Robert to listen to Paul`s experiences, but he had to excuse himself. He had other people to talk to. He left, as usual, with a lighter heart. He was able to call friends and relatives. He was becoming unstuffed.
The next day his daughter called and he got further unstuffed. "Since he you`re not working, could you come twice next week?"
"For sure." He was unstuffing more. He would get to play with his grandkids twice that
week. Also, not working the following Friday and Saturday unstuffed him more. His bronchial and sinus problems had come back in full force. He couldn`t have gone in anyway. Then, they surprised him by paying him for a holiday he wasn`t due. Their exit meeting had been pretty brutal. He still wouldn`t give them any business. Paying him was weird.
He was free to visit more of the church`s shut ins. He paid the first half of his property taxes. His Christmas was better without that job than with it. Through a little pain cam great blessings. He was going from un stuffing to unraveling in a positive way. Life was good. God was great.
