Anyways, last summer I was walking the dogs and I saw what looked like a cream colored squirrel without a tail, or it could have been a rabbit without long ears. Your guess is as good as mine. So as I stared and watched the strange animal disappear into the brush, behind me I heard a voice say something like "kinda strange, aint it?"
|The squabbit looked something like this|
I looked over and my mouth dropped open, what I saw was WAY more odd than an half rabbit half squirrel hybrid. It was an older man with a long white beard, wearing a black cape over his brown cords and a black shirt. This man also held a peculiar wooden walking stick that could pass for a staff.

The man and I talked for a moment about the kooky mammal that we just saw and then he was on his way. If I hadn't known better, I would have thought that someone had dosed me with LSD or something. The whole scene was abnormal.
Fast forward to yesterday. I saw the St Paul Wizard again, and in the same vicinity that I saw him the first time! This time he was pushing a shopping cart full of bottles and other odds and ends. He still had the cape and the long beard, but now was wearing Birkenstocks and had a 2 foot long corn cob pipe sticking out of his mouth. I SWEAR! If I would have not been so stunned to see him again I would have maybe had half a mind to take a picture of this fellow. Ah, maybe next time...
