Now, Porter was an interesting looking fellow, even from a distance. The prominent beard caught my eye, of course, and that with his gait seemed a bit enigmatic. A Bohemian artist? A Professor? A fellow down on his luck?
The sure thing was that he wore long trousers on a cold day. Seems logical, but on a winter day in Florida, northern visitors usually wear shorts no matter what, to convince themselves that they are in the tropics (Florida is NOT in the tropics).
But no, I misjudged again. Porter WAS a winter visitor from western Pennsylvania. When I mentioned the long pants, he looked at me like I was an idiot - politely (no comments please). He said that he was a bit disappointed that this place was so COLD.
too. (I still like his look)
