While I was drawing this nothing much happened until I was finished, when I got into a conversation with a person who came out of the house next door.
‘His name’s Ron,’ the woman said when I asked who it was who lived in the house, ‘and he’s the best. He walks with a cane but he still insists on taking out our trash cans.’
‘Nice,’ I say.
‘Yeh,’ she says, smiling ‘he’s been married to the same woman for like 50 years.’
‘Woah,’ I say, ‘good effort.’
‘He told me that on their first date he bought her flowers,’ she says, ‘but she told him she hadn’t asked for them and threw them into the back seat of his car.’
