“What is the plural of Lewis?”

Published: Tuesday, September 11, 2012 at 03:57 PM.

Then I remembered Lewis, the nice looking the little house, the eagle and the Guinea dialect.

I rushed to my car in the rain and opened the door.

It was bone dry.

Not a drop of water on the floorboard.

Driving to work Monday morning, I called Lewis. When he answered, I simply said, “You are wonderful.” Of course Lewis said, “Who dis?” The “Guinea Men of Virginia” were fishermen and their dialect is distinct, trust me, he said, “Who dis?”

After explaining to him who I was and how happy I was, he started laughing. He started laughing like only a fellow who has an eagle on his house can laugh. We talked a while and then I asked him, “How much do I owe you?”

Lewis said, “Do you think 20 or 25 dollars would be too much?” I said, “No sir, not at all.”
