Local Color, Character

Pica seems to be the only writer picking up my 'challenge' from a few weeks back to tell about 'local characters' from places you have lived. I love it that she took a bus for 'an hour or two of warblers'. In some folks minds, Pica, you and I would be considered eccentric characters for our odd interests and peculiar slant on life, don't you imagine? Personally, I don't mind being considered eccentric, having no desire in these times to be 'centric'. But that's just me.. old Weird Fred of Goose Creek.

Fred--well, for sure we're outside the norm (Numenius and I don't even have a TV, for which we're sure at some point we'll get deported). But I'd like to think that there's room for all of us. Unlike Al or the homeless guy on the Tokyo subway, though, we're bound to be regarded with a kind of benign bemusement...
