The story is set in a small town a few years after the war. It’s a simple time of soda fountains and Studebakers, and MacRae captures the tone of this yesteryear like a Norman Rockwell of words.
He paints a pretty picture… the only thing not typical about his town is Walter. It’s a symbiotic relationship, however, so no one is complaining. Walter needs them as much as the town folk need him. Artwork by Luke Spooner was perfect for this story.
Now if only we could get a Walter for our post office…
