I've walked by this house a zillion times and for some reason never saw this. Classic. Who lives here, Madam Bovary? No, actually, you'll see this little elderly gent out watering the lawn (and his neighbors') and puttering about the yard in his little checkered polyester shorts and black dress socks pulled up to his knees. Which, frankly, is pretty awesome. Especially considering the context: this is right across the street from the Clown House and the Star & Rose Cafe (where you'll find donuts, dreads, love and anarchy). It's what I love about Alberta St— the contrast & diversity.
