The "play" that I am currently living in has so many different and interesting characters.
There is my neighbor, who makes homemade manicotti and feeds everyone who comes within her range. She is gutsy, ballsy, and bigger than life. She is from Las Vegas and at one point in her life made her living by gambling. We are very dangerous together as playmates, but I could not enjoy a neighbor any more. She is married and they are traveling with three dogs so it is always a bit of a three ring circus, Circus Circus on wheels:). It will be a sad day when one of us moves on from this park.
Next to my neighbors is "surfer dude" - a very nice, good looking man.
Next to him is Preacher Steve who had a near death experience when he was in his 20s and all conversations with him are of the sermon variety. As long as the conversations are not too lengthy, I love hearing him speak the word of God.
To date, my favorite character is Gypsy Larry. If ever there was an Angel inhabiting a human body, it would be him. He currently has a brain tumor and has a traceotomy in his throat from a previous bout with cancer. He was told he would never talk again, and yet here he is, talking and telling these double-over laughing stories. He has a blog site, gypsylarry.com, that is worth taking a look at.
Oh, and then there was a couple who are traveling with a parrot and the parrot walked up onto my arm. That was a first! And the couple who hooked up around Christmas time and the park has been talking about and enjoying:).
Such a wide variety of people, from so many different walks of life and beliefs, meeting up at this particular point in time and sharing in this experience together.
Gotta love it!
