the dude

so, we have this neighbor, and he's kind of an enigma. He's almost always outside. Sun, rain, summer, winter, whatever he is outside. In the summer he is always shirtless and his skin is tanned beyond recognition, as in....looks like he has had leather grafted to his body.

Every time we see him he is either mowing a lawn (his or someone else's) or snow blowing, or shoveling or sitting in his big truck in his driveway smoking.

Even though we see him on almost a daily basis, it's still like a Bigfoot sighting or something. We get quiet and one us whispers "the dude...." like it's a celebrity sighting but we don't want him to know that we know who he is. Or something.

The dude abides.

Sometimes, there's a man, well, he's the man for his time and place. He fits right in there. And that's the Dude.
