I just wanted to say that I am thankful for all the memories I have shared with all those I've loved and that have loved me back. Thinking about these makes me wish you could show everyone just how much you loved them with ever encounter, unfortunately it's just not that easy but I will strive every day to be better.

Vincent is a recovering meth addict. He used to wander the streets trying to score, now he wanders them doing good deeds here and there. His record is so tarnished that he can't get a real job, but the neighborhood helps support him by giving him odd jobs and paying him cash. He almost has enough to move out of his studio apartment and get a 1 bedroom! Go vincent!
Frank is a writer for the New York Times. He has a column titled "Free Your Mind With Frank" where people can vent out anything they want to say and then Frank takes what's unusual about their thoughts and kind of pokes fun at it. Its a humorous little column that has quite a few fans who "like" it on Facebook.
Clara is from Germany. She doesn't speak much English but somehow managed to get booked as a model for Walmart's children's clothes. Shes 28 but looks like shes 13, so they loved her, because she is an adult and looks the part. She's made enough that when she returns back to Germany she is going to buy herself a nice house and dog, 2 things shes wanted since she was a child.
Benson is a bit of a slob. He has real issues though, when his wife died almost ten years ago he started hoarding. Luckily this past year he realized he couldn't take it anymore and sought out help. He horded all sorts of old baseball cards and other things that seemed really collectible. He squandered away his entire savings, but while the junk people were cleaning out his stuff they found a 1914 Baltimore News SGC Babe Ruth baseball card and ended up with half a million dollars after the sale. He now owns the Red Sox team and no longer hordes anything. He thanks his wife every day for helping him to find this card that would help him accept and move on.
I've been watching a lot of the show hoarders lately... as you can tell...
Mabe is an insidious little guy, whistling every time he is up to no good. Last time I caught him, he had lit a loaf of bred on fire, then threw it in the oven to finish. Why would you light a loaf of bread on fire? I dunno, but he did. If I hadn't caught him whistling the star spangled banner, I don't know what else would have ended up on fire!
