Oddest Thing. . .

A number of years back I got up early one saturday or sunday and was standing in the living room with a cup of coffee looking out the front picture window. Looking out over the front lawn to the neighborhood street.

Just about then a man came walking down the sidewalk, paused, and then walked across our front lawn to the flower border under the window and began picking a yellow rose off one of bushes by bending the stem back and forth till it came off. I tapped lightly on the window, he made a shrug/gesture of apology and then continued down the sidewalk.

So what's odd you ask? . . .

He was wearing a Confederate civil war uniform.

No, I'm not making this up.
