was the first day of October, and all things considered, Mitford was pretty quiet.Around the tenth of the month is when it would hit the fan The chlorophylls of summer foliage would have degraded into nonfluorescent chlorophyll catabolites, and hidden pigments would explode in a pyrotechnic extravagance of scarlet, gold, vermilion, and out loud yellow.While the display would be rampant throughout the Blue Ridge Mountains, Mitford was proud to offer its very own autumn expo A brace of mature Acer rubrum,which paraded from Town Hall to First Baptist Such annual spectacle would not be missed by tourists in the hundreds, steaming up the mountain with the ubiquitous cell phone and occasional Nikon.There was, however, a caveat There were now two gaps in the parade of maples One where lightning had struck in 2005 and the other where trunk rot had finally dealt its fatal blow.The Council had ordered the stump ground and the vacant sites disguised with mulch Mitford had not enjoyed a furor in quite a while and somehow, collectively, had decided the time had come.A party of locals demanded that the maples be replaced, full size, which would cost the town a bundle Others campaigned to replant with beds of pansies, historically known as the town flower A group calling themselves the Vocal Locals objected to pine bark mulch as too acidic for the soil and pressed for cocoa bean hulls, which others rejected outright as too foreign.Esther Cunninghams copy of the weekly Musehit the porch at seven thirty sharp she read the feature on the trees while cranked back in her recliner.She hadnt served as Mitfords mayor, albeit former, for nothing She knew about such things People were right about th pine barkget it offa there and go with th pansies How often did they get a blank spot to drop in a couple flats of pansies As for replacement, no Nobody in their right mind would go for the cost of spading in mature trees, and young stock would look ridiculous among their elders.After sixteen nose to the grindstone years, shed been retired for how long Too long She had sworn never to run for office again, but didnt people change their minds all the time and so what if she was gaining on ninety Take th woman in England who was a hundred and still tend inbarpullin pints, she called it, three days a week And thathundred year old gal writin for a newspaper, askin people, Got any news And how about th mayor who was still mayorin at a hundred an two, bless er heart Just lately, she dropped dead comin out of a council meeting, which was no surprise How many of those monkey shows had she, Esther Cunningham, barely escaped with her life She located the remote in the pocket of the recliner, cranked upright, and reached for her iPad.Havin an iPad had opened a whole new world Her daughters could no longer accuse her of bein Stone Age she knew what was goin on out there with people livin longer.At seven thirty five, Father Tim Kavanagh dropped a frozen banana, half a package of frozen acai berries, and a handful of frozen mangoes and peaches into a blender The mlange was followed by a container of Greek yogurt, a spoonful of tahini, and a long pour of almond milk.He hit the Blend button while firmly holding down the lid Completely new to the smoothie regimen, he was alarmed by the possibility of the lid flying off and splattering stuff all over the kitchen But the blender wouldnt blend It sounded like an eighteen wheeler spinning tires on a sheet of ice.He hit Off and reviewed the options.Puree, Whip, Mix, Stir, Grind, Frapp.Grind did not work Same with the other options.Okay, so some of the contents were frozen like a rock maybe they had to partially thaw When the nurse gave him the recipe after his physical, she didnt say the ingredients had to be thawed He did not have time to wait for something to thaw He hit Blend again A sound like tires screaming on a NASCAR track.This would be his first morning without caffeine Whether he could live up to the caffeine free regimen recommended by Dr Wilson, he couldnt say He was totally hooked on coffee and had been for decades Cut him some slack, for Petes sake Let him cling to this harmless vice.He removed the lid and looked in Maybe if he stuck a knife down in there and broke up the frozen chunksSo, okay, you cannot put in big chunks, they have to be broken up first, because that worked pretty well and now the blender was sort of blending This smoothie business was no walk in the park Hed had trouble opening the package of frozen acai berries and resorted to sawing through the wrapper with a bread knife Acai berries, whey, tahinisuch exotic items were not available at the Local hed been forced to drive to the neighboring Wesley, a college town in which such products thrived.He emptied the contents of the blender into a large glass for himself and one for Cynthia, who would be coming downstairs any minute, and since Puny was taking a few weeks off, he was careful to do a cleanup.He carried the glasses to the study, glancing beyond what they called their picture window to a view of their own Acer rubrum The crimson was as yet a mere blush, and there were the blue mountains beyond, illumined by the blast of pure, clean light that happens when the earth does its autumnal tilt.He put the glasses on the table, sat on the sofa To be honest, he wasnt completely excited about todays agenda.They would be lugging the contents of Cynthias workroom up the hall to the dining room, now vacant of the pool table, which had recently moved to Meadowgate Farm, hallelujah.He visualized the countless tubes of paint and brushes, boxes of colored pencils and pens, and the tons of finished art that had happily leaned against a wall for a decade or two, plus the contents of a massive wooden file cabinet wherein resided the complete history of her life as a writer illustrator of childrens books Then there was all the stuff pushpinned to the wall that had served as images of encouragement faded prints of Matisse paintings, her grandfather on a pony at the age of nine, newspaper and trade journal accounts of her many awards and recognitions, innumerable photos of white cats in various posesLug, haul, schlep, totethat was the way of marriage As a bachelor, he had never moved anything Every item in the rectory had been deeply, and for his money happily, rooted in place.He checked his watch.They would have to be dressed and out of here at twelve fifteen for Esther Cunninghams birthday luncheon at the club, and after the big bash, come home and have at it again But he wouldnt grumble The new workspace would be reviving for his wife, who had for years hunkered down in quarters the size of a shoebox.He looked across the room where Truman slept in a wingback chair, undisturbed by dreams of preying hawks or the one upmanship of barn cats A cat as white as chalk, except for a black ear, was a red flag to rural predators, including fox and bear Clearly Truman had considered the odds and made a decision to leave Meadowgate Farm He was discovered yesterday on the backseat of Cynthias new Mini Cooper Roadster When she arrived home and opened the car door to take out a sack of squash from the farm garden, Truman had jumped down and dived for their kitchen door Home free And here was his wife, a vision in sweats and fuzzy slippers.This is the day the Lord has made she said.He lifted his glass Let us rejoice and be glad in it She thumped onto the sofa, took her glass from the table Smelled the contents.What is this Its a smoothie, the first of ten commandments from Wilson It contains calcium to help restore bones Osteowas the dark word the nurse had used Thats where this is headed if you dont shape up, Father.Cynthia took a sip and looked at him, wordless.I think I forgot the whey, he said. Whey The recipe calls for whey, but I forgot Heres lookin at you, kid He drank half the stuff, just to show that he could.She tried again Theres a blob of something in here.I think theres supposed to be a blob or two.But a smoothie is supposed to be smooth.Blobs are good for you It was his final argument.She took another sip, tentative I cant do this Ill settle for the bones of Elijah, dry as they may be But thank you, sweetheart.We also have to start walking, Kavna Every day A hundred and fifty minutes a week, total Should be easy Oh, and do weight bearing exercises.Is this your medical protocol or my medical protocol Mine, really, but your bone density test is due next week and youll need the same treatment, trust me Its an old age thing.She gave him a look I cant believe youre caving to the notion of old age.Not caving, just being realistic.Realistically, I must begin painting today The Childrens Hospital auction Realistically, the auction is nearly six months away April Six months will be gone in a blink Irene and I are committing to fifteen new paintings each The work sold so well last time, we want to be even better this year It isnt easy to be better each year.Tell me about it.So she would be absent from this galaxy until the last brush was cleaned and put away For years hed been jealous of her creative passions, but in recent years had learned to support and encourage hera strategy which, ironically, returned her to him in surprising ways.He heard the Musetruck slow down, then roar away.The Muse he cried Drink up, girl, we have work to do He went to the door and brought the newspaper in he would just take a minute to check LOL, aka the laugh of the week.He didnt have to look far.Mitford School Students, declared the front page headline, Make Delicious Snacks.Mitfords police captain shocked herself by running a red lightindeed, the only traffic light in town.She was mortified She looked both ways on Lilac Road, ahead on Main, and into the rearview mirror Had anyone witnessed this All clear, thank the Lord That was unusual for a weekday morning, but in a town like Mitford, even the bushes had eyes She was born with a lead foot, and shed been hauling to make it to the station for a special meeting of the day shift.She wheeled into the parking lot as the church bells at Lords Chapel began their eight oclock chime Bong bongShe was an honest woman should she write herself a citation Adele Hogan, MPD police captain, grandmother, churchgoer, wife of local newspaper editorShe was struck then by something like an aftershock She realized she hadnt just run the light, she had been speeding Her heart was kicking like a horse at the stall door She got out of the patrol car and adjusted her holster with the new.40 caliber Sig Sauer She hadnt been doing than five or six miles per hourokay, tenover the limit, but stillTwo offenses If her mama knew this, she would roll over in her grave A citation would send her to court where they would march her fool self off to driving school Her face burned If she did not opt for driving school, she would have to pay court costs and a fine Five hundred bucks If she opted for school, the DA could probably be moved to reduce the charges for a first offender, but there would still be points on her drivers license, an increase in her insurance premiums, and nobody in town, much less the MPD, would let her forget it.As if that wasnt punishment enough, the whole miserable incident would land on the station log, engraved in stone, which is when it would go from bad to worse.Everybody knew Vanita Bentley checked the log five days a week, prowling for any scrap she could splash across the front page of the Mitford Muse, owned by the husband of the MPD police captain.Her husband would sell his grandma for a good story But even if it didnt circulate in the newspaper, it would definitely circulate by word ofmouth Roughly twenty minutes is what it took for news to spread through Mitford like a brush fire.As she opened the station door, her heart was doing a number under the badge she had worn for six years plus change.Why was she making herself miserable Nobody had witnessed it What was the big deal Maybe it was her new blood pressure med.She breathed in.So, okay No citation.Really, all she needed was a reminder Something she could keep in her sock drawer where J.C would never lay eyes on it, but she would see it every morning.She breathed out.Yes Good She would write herself a warning.Coot Hendrick was feeling entirely cured Upper respiratory somethin or otherhe could not recall exactly what had made him so sick All he knew was, he had never smoked, so his conscience was clear He stood at the big window in his upstairs apartment over Happy Endings bookstore and worked out his list for the day.He would finally be able to do everything that needed doin Vacuum the store, wash the front windows, haul off the recycling, dust the books, an whatever else Miz Murphy and Sister Louise wanted him to do, or even Grace, who sometimes asked him to catch her a frog or a housefly or a turtle so she could draw it.Get stamps, he needed to get stamps for their mail order business An put his bedclothes in th washer in the basement It would be nice to have clean bedclothes to look forward to when he finished his book tonight, and Lord knows, he hated to finish it Hed got so used to that book, it was like he was livin in a whole other place.He remembered there was a piece of Miz Bolicks Orange Marmalade Cake still in the freezer He would set that out to thaw and eat it tonight after he finished his book He got a shiver of joy rememberin how that cake looked settin on his little table and how it was just for him, to help him get well Miz Bolick had brought it up to the store and said to Miz Murphy, This is for Coot, who is one of Mitfords town fixtures It was a solemn honor to be called a town fixture.Praise for
