Homeless in Vancouver: Firebird for a hot day

    1 of 1 2 of 1

      Johnny Carson: “It was so hot today…”

      Audience: “How hot was it?”

      Johnny: “It was so hot today…that even the chalk art on the sidewalks was well done!”

      [Audience laughter. Drum roll from band. Ed McMahon coughs. Cut to commercial.]

      Hi Stanley,

      I stumbled onto your blog and enjoy your observations and writing style!

      Where would I find you on any given weekday - I'd like to buy you lunch and chat if possible?

      Weekdays, by 8 a.m., I'm usually breakfasting at McDonald's in the 1400 block W. Broadway around the southeast corner from S. Granville.

      Don't mind telling everyone in the world because I thought they already knew.
