For the past several years this old-timer has been pulling his homemade wagon up to a little taco stand in Grand Prairie, Texas, where he entertains the outdoor diners with his country music.

He sings, plays his old Gibson guitar, a mouth organ (harmonica), and uses his foot to play a brass symbol and drum. He is usually around on Fridays and Saturdays, and I always stop by to listen.

However, I hadn't seen the old fellow for nearly a year. Yesterday, I was relieved to see him back again. He told me his wife had died of cancer this past December.

Some things we just take for granted, until they're gone. Glad this local treasure is still around to spice up our little downtown.

Note the modified clipboard he uses to hold his harmonica.

Wonderful character good portraits.
I like the way you approach the first shot.
Maybe I would have opted for a more angled look but I like your shots anyway.

Special people always attract your eye! I like especially the second picture because you captured that man right in the middle of playing!
