Who was this eccentric man, Scott? He drove an old pickup truck, appeared to be loner and just did not look adequate.
Neighbors on Gallier Street were feeling a bit unsure watching the big, stocky, beer belly, receding hairline, ‘zonked-out’ looking fellow move tirelessly to and from his truck, garage and house.
Was Scott way out of the league of his new neighbors? The Gallier Street homes were elegantly polished, 2-storied with plush, manicured lawns and nestled around a shady, spacious and green public park.
