I may have written about Steve before. He is a slight blonde guy who moves with the speed of light. He has done a lot of tree work for us because he can climb a tree and have it cut down before you can blink your eyes.
We are pretty sure he is addicted to amphetamines. He goes through his money so fast but he hardly ever finishes his work the way you would like him to. I still have two bags of leaves from last year that he was supposed to haul away.
Steve reminds me of my nephew and so I mother him which is a mistake. Food to Steve is akin to a cross to a vampire. We sometimes take him to the Golden Corral but he hardly eats. I gave him a warm shearling coat that I was going to donate to the Salvation Army and I hope he hangs on to it because it is like new.
An old saying from my childhood keeps popping in to my head, "There but for the grace of God go I." I know that Steve spent one winter living in his pick up. I can't imagine how lonely and cold he must have been.
There are a million Steve's living from hand to mouth around us. The problem of the homeless needs to be adressed. we are the richest country in the world and we continue to spend a distressing amount on the military and deprive our citizens of decent health care and shelter for those who need it and it is worse during this administration than it has ever been.
