Cloverdale's Early Morning Christian Gossips
Norma Watkins and Jean Maple Stanley found each other on this very park bench in Cloverdale over thirty years ago. They've been the best of friends since that day, meeting most Sunday mornings on their way to church when their overall health and general attitudes toward their aging Pastor will permit. Both grandmother's believe that a good gossip is the best way to start a Sunday. It is their greatest delight to arrive at Church with the village's best and most scandalous tales to be passed along to the ladies of their Coffee Club.
Norma and Jean are their congregation's best source of village news. Gossip from anyone else, while still enjoyable and worthy of a tongue wag, must be taken with a grain of salt.
