Men in suits with ties and women nicely dressed in dresses, skirt suits and pants suits are all unusual in Ashland. When six of them leave the fog and enter The Beanery, I wonder.
They're quiet and somber. They don't seem to know each other well, with one asking another, what sort of work do you do? They seem awkward, looking around at the rest of us. They seem alien.
All but one is wearing black. Did they attend funeral services? A mortuary is a five minute walk down and across the street, between two cemetaries.
I listen to them as I write, searching for clues about why these people are here, in suits, in black.
