A Sanur Cowboy Story

Blind Brit Philip next door plays Johnny Cash songs a lot. Sometimes I know his car, driven by Nyoman Mabuk (drunk), is approaching by the Ring of Fire. Philip says he met Johnny Cash when he was a teenager. He was working in an upscale London toy store when a man came in at about closing time and said he was interested in the model cowboy town in the display window. It was elaborate and expensive. Philip told him to come back the next day, went and checked out. The next day he arrived for work to learn he'd been fired for sending Johnny Cash away.
