Wilson & I had to wait out a little rain & some hail before we could go to the frisbee park for the regular evening entertainment.
While we were there an 11 year old kid and 2 older ladies stopped by a few minutes apart to ask me if it was going to rain any more or was it over.

I realized then that they had assumed I must be an elderly native American.
Now that may be good or it may be bad but it shows you just how pervasive this racism thing is.
