|Some of the greatest things about living on this crazy island are the amazing characters. Specifically, I love living in an area where I can see Mr. James Chapman all over town. He’s a conch, though what generation I have no idea. I do know that his grandfather bought the family homestead at 221 Petronia in 1872 for $350.
There is more than one lighted disco bike at the family home; Mr. Chapman has been teaching the art of making folks happy to his grandson. And makes folks happy, he does.
Locals, tourists, whatever…peoples’ faces light up up when they hear “Super Freak”, assorted oldies, and tunes by Earth Wind & Fire.
