When I first moved to 5th and Montrose, Felix eyed me suspiciously over the top of his glasses for a few months before he started returning my hellos. I figure he needed the time to gauge whether I was a jerk or n'eer-do-well before he was willing to commit to neighborliness. After that he was unfailingly friendly - at least, as friendly as Felix got.

I miss him.
