Here we have a reasonable population (18K) but there's always someone who'll stop to talk on the street, in the grocery store, at the local. There's even the option to hide from folks (as Keamoose).
The pace of life is just right and it does feel good to know your friends (even though we have a large transient population). The folks who stick it out here are worth knowing and those that come and go are fun while they last.
The latest stir was when a group of concerned citizens staged a protest and brought the homeless folks some lawn chairs to stop them from sitting on the stoop outside the post office. You see, summer is settin' season here and the local businesses get a bit concerned about the loitering.
in spite of all the trouble me and walter have got ourselves into, i can't see severing the relationship.
i am at work. pretty soon, when i am drunk, i will be laughing so hard. the line:
"no going back after you cut off your own penis", is a showstopper. finis. no mas. turn out the lights. piss on the fire, er, wait a sec…maybe that last one won't work anymore.
