It was just good fortune I bumped into him and his friend yesterday. I knew his friend. He was washing cars long before him. I told him months ago that Mr. Car Wash had inexplicably disappeared. Afterward I see his friend more often riding into the estate on a well maintained and shiny bicycle. I often say Hi to him.
I was just happy to see Mr. Car Wash. I shook his hands and inquired about his well being and absence. He had returned to India. I missed it but wifey heard he was in an Indian hospital. It was never easy to understand his English and I often wondered if he understood me. Never mind. Mr. Car Wash started washing the car last night and he seems fit and healthy.
