Gypsies: Devers

We used to have them (gypsies) come by a little later than this time of year. I imagined they came up from the south. They would come into the motels along No.1 highway. They spread out. I never had any trouble with them. The man would come to the office in a very big car. Once in a while they'd come in a truck. The next would be his wife.

She would be dressed in a gypsy costume. I would worry because they were hard to get out, not as far as paying, but they would bring in others and they would want to stay and stay. Of course I didn't know whether they'd have a gathering or what.
