Captian America

I took this photo with my cellphone. I met this elderly man in the grocery store, it is very warm today - he is not shopping, just riding the loaner motorized cart around and staying cool. He followed me around the store telling me tales of his younger days on a trike (3-wheel motorcycle), of where the local speed traps are, about health care, about Iraq, our President, local politics, food prices, city waste. etc. I am sure he was just lonely so I went up and down each aisle so we could talk longer. I loved the outfit - it was spectacular when he stood up and hiked his shorts to near chest level.

 

I hope to see him again; he is a good talker.
