Willie stands with a perpetual bend (making him look somewhat like a sagging skeleton), which is even more pronounced when he is at his sink..."That boy'll be a durned hunchback when he gits to be our age," his Grampa always says to his Gramma's urn. He wears his white, spotless dishwasher's apron over his white short sleeved button up shirt and white denim pants. At the end of his gangly legs are two white socks, covered by his all white pumas. They stay pristine even with all of the coffeespills that happen all around him...maybe that's why he always looks so surprised.
