There is a man wandering around California with three mules...Mule is 65 years old and has slept outside with his three mules for the last 10 years, though he’s lived his nomadic lifestyle for much longer than that -- 29 years on and off. Early on, he split his time between summer wandering, and then enduring what he calls “**** jobs” during the winter to earn enough to live off for the next summer.

That is one cool old dude! If you happen to run across him, offer him some cold water and appreciation on my behalf, please, for what he is trying to do and the way he is trying to do it.

I talked to Mule in Santa Cruz a couple of weeks ago, before he was harassed by the Gilroy PD. I didn't have my camera with me so I didn't get a picture. Definitely a crusty old codger but pleasant too, once he knows you just want to talk and aren't going to complain. I had nothing to offer him but support.

Good heavens, Vikingdad. Is there anyone you HAVEN'T met?

California must be full of famous people. I once met a man who met Andy Griffith.
