Good Ol' Charlie Zarzour

Charlie's actual city job was code enforcement officer, driving around town checking for code violations and making sure that people had pulled the required permits. He hobbled around on crutches but he didn't let that slow him down. He also was the guy who set up the table, the coffee pot, and the cake or cookies for the break during city council meetings or at Miss North Miami Pageant rehersals.

When my daughter Elena was little she'd "help" Charlie put out the plates, forks, napkins, etc. and then help him clean up afterwards. Her reward was mostly having a knee to sit on and some interesting stories to listen to, and he was always "Charlie, not "Mr. Zarzor".
