So, since he seemingly disappeared but still appeared here and there, the editor tracked him down, and he has reappeared here. It's about Trinidad, over in Ward 5.
The editor used to play (free, bar poker) with an MPD patrol sergeant from 5D who had Trinidad as his territory. The editor learned that it was not the tamest of places and didn't go there. That changed when a bathroom faucet began leaking.
It was a Home Depot store brand which didn't use the standard washers of prehistory. And, of course, they don't stock that part in stores. Neither did Seventeenth Street Hardware, although they did point him to the right place. That's Twelfth and Florida, deep Trinidad.
He had to park a half block away, with this view. That's renovation territory, if not full gentrification. The editor was happy to see it and will visit again.
