    Norman watch continues. Just saw him by the Walnut St Theatre pushing a yellow bicycle.

    Exactly. Wouldn't be surprised if it was him.

    I'm hearing our old pal Norman passed away in his sleep last night. He had apparently been staying with a friend of someone I know and had complained about feeling unwell before going to sleep.

    Yep. I was just going to make a thread about it. RIP Norm. Didn't like you then, and I still don't-but you were one of a kind.

    My guess is that bike thefts will now magically drop to an all-time low.

    Someone's putting a candle light service together for him tomorrow. "Sweet goodbyes to the legend". WTF?

    Yeah, I must say that I'm a bit surprised by the outpouring since many of the people wishing him such pleasantries are the same ones who got ripped off by him through the years. I guess it's just that he was such a part of our area and none of us are getting any younger... but I still think he was an ******* and won't be praising him in the least.

    An appropriate quote attributed to the late Moms Mabley:

    I had a picture of Norman but it must have been lost when my old, old desktop gave up. Anyone have a shot, must have the horns. If my memory is correct my shot was Norman in a store and the shot was through a window.

    Mugshot, no horns though.

    Yes and parking will be cheaper around Bainbridge Street.

    Unless someone else takes over his spot holding business.

    Oh yeah-forgot about when he'd do that. The one day I sat on bainbridge for about an hour and a half waiting for him to steal a bike. He kept looking at it, looking at me, looking at it, looking at me. He finally walked away, so I walked away-but something tells me he circled around and got it anyway.

    Anyone who attended should have had their bike stolen for proper condolences.

    I like the Willy Wonka hat. Never saw that on him.

    I think he got that after he got out of jail for the drug charges.
