6 - Parrot Gold - Digital Download
This story borrows a lot from memoir. It was a joy to recount. Coco did ride on my truck’s seat back. He did go under buildings. And when pressed, took to wing (but not with wished-for grace).
The second word of the title plays a prominent thread in the tale. The author, on an emergency call, one day found sprays of fine gold mixed with swirls of ‘black sand’ in white porcelain toilet tank bottoms! The author knew the Board Chair of the water utility. PtP called his office and told him that PtP had the answer to all of the utility’s financial concerns. Yours truly was invited to explain. Upon the author completing his story, the Director’s response was: “Yes, Pete, we know about the gold, but we can’t be digging up or tunneling under people’s properties to get it.”
After restoring the water service to the toilets, sinks, and showers, Pete and Coco bid his client adieu, and never made a ‘big thing’ of it, until now, in this story. (Got a gold pan or ‘rocker’)? (8 pages)
