Caring for human beings seems like the best use of my time, homeless or not.

Homeless Man -- 107 years old!!!???

We've got this homeless guy coming into Nightwatch looking for shelter. Every night we write down his birthday: "1899"

Wait a minute. That would make him 107 this year! How can that be? Ann & Rick want to know. One of our workers, Paul says, "That's what his Washington State ID says. We checked it."

Dang. The guy doesn't look a day over 95.

Wow,maybe living on the streets isn't such an unhealthy thing after all! God knows, that all us "normal" folks work ourselves to death trying to keep our security of house and home...
Good to get these snapshots of your life, Rick!
