Everyone recognizes Bill’s utility truck.
“There goes Green Hornet Light,” they say whenever the beast rolls down Main.
Bill lives at the end of a long 2-track. He doesn’t take much to visitors. Keeps to himself.
Bill’s town legend is that he kept Bonnie and Clyde from getting away when GHL blocked their path.
Once a month Bill takes GHL on a road trip. Plenty of guesses as to where he goes. Some say he has a sweetheart in the big city.
Nobody ever bothers to notice the special color of the rust at the base of his toolbox.
