A fresh new year. Full of excitement about the endless possibilities ahead.
Not for our resident nutter though.
This man actually is more than a little intimidating from 50yards or so. I used to see him on the streets around the house regularly.
He has a shock of wild dreadlocks, a beard full of vomit (I think), and two dinner-plate eyes.
His favourite trick is to stop stock still and bellow at you across the street, but meet him in the local corner shop, and he's not too bad you know - far more polite when he's in an enclosed space.
The photo was taken from the spare bedroom, across the recreation ground
It was about 7:15am at the time, and zero degrees celcius.
I think he'd like the picture!
