Mr. and Mrs. Tussels

Mr. and Mrs. Tussels
A big softy and a small toughy.

The local police chief Mr. Tussels is friends with everyone near Boston Commons, his home turf.  He keeps the streets safe, strong-arming crime out of town or into prison.  He always thought of himself as tough until he finds himself knocking on the door of a neighborhood girl who has just lost her parents.

Mrs. Tussels, an accomplished seamstress, was acquaintances with Dorothy’s mother, Susanna.

Fantastic! It's really fun to craft my own stories first based only on the image, and then see how it matches up with your own! Really lovely trembling lip.
