A friendly pan handler at the gates of Disneyland. His name is "Bird." On a good night he brings over a hundred. On a bad night he may net a few dollars. He is pleasant, personable, and plays in a band during the day. He has a difficult time sight reading and plays by ear. I said he doesn't seem very aggressive at pan handling. He replied the Lord provides.
The "Walker" stopped by during our conversation (a guy who looked and acted like a bald Richard Simmons) and asked me if I was interested in "Merlin" his name for Bird. I asked him if he was a regular at this corner. He asked me if I was a regular and let me know Hawaii was that a way. He then trotted south on Harbor Blvd. Bird told me the Walker has serious mental problems.
