The Cadillac in Bloom
Anita began to laugh and I began to laugh and that policeĀ­man must have thought we were both crazy. He said, "Boy, they're going to find you in a ditch dead some day," and he dashed to the place where he thought the liquor was hidden and, when he didn't find it, he began to raise hell He asked all the customers why they came to a place that was raided all the time. Anita just laughed at him, gave him a drink, and asked him to come back anytime.
Business got bad then and Anita wanted to forget The Jupiter, But I got mad and insisted we hold on to the place. I even arranged for John Taylor, the toughest guy in Frisco to hang axound and protect us. He had beat up the Police Chief, so I figured he could help us. But Anita managed me, the way she always did.
