Homeless man gets new lease

October 4, 2011

Looking good

“Did you hear my good news?”

“Not that I remember.”

“Well I don’t have the cancer in the lung they thought might have it. I was just at St. Joe’s with my doctors and that’s what they told me.”

“What about the other lung?”

“They don’t know yet but it’s looking good if you ask me.”

“Look what some guy handed me just before I got on the bus last night: a full pack of Peter Jackson’s. “Pretty good, eh?”
