Default R.i.p. Leon Redbone

NPR reported the passing of Leon Redbone.
The original hipster.
I met him at a truck stop in New Mexico. Maybe Tucumcari? He was at the counter, sipping coffee.
I said, "Excuse me, are you Leon Redbone?"
He said, "Why? Does he owe you money?" In that raspy ass voice. He winked and put his finger to his lips in the shhh position and I winked back and moved on.
This was probably in the late 1990s when I was a cross country semi-truck driver.
He passed at 69.
1949- 2019
