Linda Blair August 06, 2011

Thanks everyone for your kind comments. She did seem happy with her life the way it is. Very friendly and happy for me to take a picture of her. She did ask for some change if I had it and I did give her a little bit of money. I'm always curious as to what their story might be...some are on the streets by making bad decisions and others b/c they have no where to go. #9586451
