One of the things I love about photography is the people you meet.

Here was an interesting fellow I met today, Bill. A very friendly fellow, he is 86 years old.

Bill can only get around on a walker now. At age 18 he suffered a heart attack and since then pneumonia twice. It very nearly took his life both times.

Bill has lost everyone in his family except his niece who cares for him in her home. She works at one of the local beauty parlors and he goes in with her, everyday. He sits and chats and walks up and down a strip mall for exercise.

I got quite the lecture about smoking. He told me he use to smoke cigars but didn't inhale. He also smoked a pipe, but put COFFEE grinds in it and smoked that instead of tobacco. I have never heard of such a thing.

I'm feeling a bit like this little caterpillar this morning. Slowly creeping along waiting for a metamorphism to happen.

Attended the American Festival held in Phoebus of Hampton, Virginia. Mustang Alley brought back many fond memories of riding around in a 196_ Mustang.
