It's impossible to reciprocate his abundant generosity, but it doesn't stop me from trying. "It's Big Bird's Hat! He wore it in "The The Muppets Take Manhattan"...". 

Funny, he doesn't take to the provenance quite as excitedly as I'd hoped, but he dutifully wears and models it...

More and more Stormy stuff, I should have had an unboxing video:

Picking up the bag in the "drop zone"...

Don't go anywhere, Nola, there's a picture in there for you. He's insistent that I frame it and send it off, I'm thinking this is a pretty good compromise...

And, in all the unboxing (lots of unboxing, easily 500+ scrolls and several pounds of discarded food items) - a few notes to you. Somebody misses you:

A fair likeness, I think...

...and how does he know what perfume you wear?

You share a love of flying saucers...

Anyways, if you need a date I know an Artist who would be very interested. I thought it funny that he's still thinking of you - did you write him back?

I'm not kidding. 8 hours, under 60 seconds per scroll, and I'm not done. This just in the 8 weeks I've been back.

Scrolls rolled and tied with lollipops, matchbooks, twine, ribbon, string, tape, aluminum foil, gum, wire, you name it, he's done it. Scrolls containing candy bars, candy, suckers, - and - even money - a $5 bill and a $2 coin so far. And I haven't even been unwrapping them all, there's a big segment that will be unwrapped by posterity. And there are some masterpieces here:

So, to town to buy him some more art supplies, this man is a living treasure. A picture of him on his scooter out delivering happiness to the children of Nelson:

I need to start working on a way to get him his own museum, preferably while he's living. But first to find a place to live and where I can start to unpack all of this...
