Trying to track down busy fire chief Billy Winterblossom proved to be an unexpectedly difficult task! When we tackled him about his famed taciturn nature, Billy somewhat cynically blamed it on his Native American ancestry (three generations back). Wife Hermione dismissed that idea with a snort. "He's just an old grump," she laughed.
Rumour has it, however, that she has been trying to get Billy to see psychologist Doctor Agnes Nizhoni for AGES. "He needs friends," she is reported to have worried. "I don't know what I'd do without friends - but Billy thinks he should be the strong, silent type."
When pressed for details about his problems, she added sadly, "I've said enough. You'll have to ask him yourself."
If only it were that easy!
