“Dames behind the steering wheel,” Tommy Two Toes is well known for stating should the subject ever come up in the course of a chinning, “is not a combination you want to encourage if you plan on sleeping nights.”

Tommy Two Toes has a pleasing way with words and is the sort of guy you generally don’t mind bumping into on the sidewalk because as a rule he is apt to be optimistic. He earned his moniker as a result of an unfortunate incident with a john roscoe that goes off, according to Tommy Two Toes, “ for no good Godly reason, ” and is far more perturbed about the unrepairable damage to a his Italian leather shoes than the unexpected loss of digits; said shoes being new and hard earned in the days when scratch is a rare commodity. For all the years I know Tommy Two Toes he has an optimistic outlook, though is apt be confounded as to why he can attract passing skirt without any effort on his part, but not, it seems, lady luck. Tommy Two Toes has the kind of cow eyed look about him that makes him a Sheik in the eyes of the average dame, an attribute he views as a kind of unfortunate and unwanted affliction. With all this in mind it is a matter of some concern to witness such a marked change in the demeanour of a guy you might consider a friend, if friend was not so often proved a misguided notion when you find yourself unintentionally fingered for some misdoing, So I detour from my agenda to offer a friendly hello and ask after his general well- being.
