The Driveway that Isn't and Zelig

The above old Victorian is on Addison Street in Berkeley, shot when Plot and Duck were trying to take long walks in between the Afghan marathon last Friday. Berkeley still has haunted houses in between all the student housing and tacky apartments.

A woman walked up while Plot was taking this picture, and upbraided a guy who had just parked his car in front of the house. "Don't you see the driveway?" she said. Plot and the car parker looked down -- there was no cutout for the driveway, the driveway itself had a beat up old clunker in it that hadn't been moved in thirty years, and grass had grown over both the driveway and the supposed spot of sidewalk the car would use to exit if it still had a motor.

Amazingly, the man apologized and moved his car. Waddayatalkinabout? thought Plottie, but said nary a word.

And Suzanne Harell is right that that shot taken with Juan Marichal from yesterday's post makes it look like Plottie is Zelig.
