First of all.... ohmygawd, thats today!! Its not like I had a week's notice or anything. Hopefully future Mondays will be a little more in alignment with an actual show-and-tell.
Mine is mostly 'tell' with just a smidgeon of 'show' tossed in....
I think I've been accepted... accepted by the old man in the back apt. The older couple are Asian, but I'm not sure from what area. If I was pressed to the wall for a guess, I would say Korean. When I first moved here their daughter would come by each and every day to check on them. When an apartment became available she and her immediate family moved here. Now she is up and down the stairs all the time. (The older couple is in the back ground floor apt. She, with family, is in an upstairs apt.)
I have seen the old man out for a "walk" almost every day. I put quotes around the word walk because I have a thing for quotes and I don't think 'walk' is accurate. Its more an extremely slow saunter. But he's out there, nonetheless.
I'm usually ignored as I stand up against the wall right next to my door having a smoke and trying to be inconspicuous. This morning the old man waved at me. He actually waved... you know... at me. As in a greeting. At me. I waved back and smiled.
What surprised me was the spring in his step. He was moving right along like a 20 yr old, wooden walking stick in his hand, arms swinging. He was movin' out, man!! It made me wonder if he and the ole lady got together last night or something.
He had on a white t-shirt, olive shirt over that, tan baseball cap, black walking shorts and thongs on his feet. (His wooden walking stick is smooth and a shiny golden color.)I did a real quick sketch from memory, so no reference to look at. (thats my disclaimer. Its okay to laugh. I won't be able to hear you.)
He looked like he was on top of the world.
