Everyone told me “There’s a naked man in Quartzsite, Arizona. You’ve got to go there.”
Well, duh! Of course I do.
My friends, and folks I meet on my travels, give me some of the best tips. I love you people!
They were right, as usual: he was naked except for a hat, a necklace, and a small crocheted “sock” over his privates. (‘small’ is not a comment on the size of anything other than the sock)
I think there is a little satin bow on it, but I couldn’t look that closely without being accused of staring.
No, NO. On the sock.
Sheesh, I really have conditioned you all to go to the dark side first, haven’t I? You’re welcome.
He shaves. No, not his beard. (TMI? Sorry.)
The “sock” was held up by fishing line. Nothing covered his back side. Apparently, his nakedness is not against the law in Arizona. Rumor has is he also walks back and forth across the London Bridge in Lake Havasu during the summer.
He runs a great bookstore along the highway in Quartzsite. You think I would make up a naked man running a bookstore in broad daylight? For years? Wearing nothing more than a hat and a privates-covering sock?
Not a chance, people. Not. A. Chance.
Here’s the sign you see before you go in…
And here’s the proof that he really is naked…
His wife took the photo. She was wearing clothes. She likes clothes, he doesn’t. Must be one of those “opposites attract” things.
As well as being a really nice guy, he’s a rather accomplished blues musician, and cartoonist. He owns the Reader’s Oasis in Quartzsite, a bookstore full of rare and vintage books and albums. Well worth the trip for the books alone.
Next up I’ve got more photos for you. NO, no – there are no naked people in these.
Should I just apologize again? Yeah? Sorry.
They’re of a pyramid that is right here in America. Why don’t we all know about this? Americans could save a LOT of money by not having to travel half way around the world to see a pyramid.
Ok, it’s not exactly “huge”.
Meanwhile, perhaps a cool new t-shirt is in order…
