Have met quite a few but one is a neighbor -- S. Colbert lives about a half mile down the street. Nice guy, has taught some Sunday School occasionally at a local church, often seen in one of the local hardware stores, tries to be very straight and un-silly when with his kids, likes to keep their lives as normal as possible. Yogi Berra lives about a mile in the other direction, must be about four feet tall at this point, always smiles and says hello to people.
