Looking out beyond my gate, I saw two elf looking characters today, that look like the elfin miners. One fell off his bike driving over the garbage can and other one older walking up the street. They looked scrubby and scuffled and had elfin beards and long brown hair flying. I always wonder what the young elves looked like, and today these two on my street looked liked elves only younger than the elderly Ole Elf I saw in Colorado at the gambling casino sitting by the slot machine. The young men on the street were much younger and a more colorful. The one who fall off his bike, could be young kaJ, the miner only looking tired, a little dirty and ruffled. Not Ole Uncle Elf Clyde who left Iceland and knows the Nordic Gods (Thor, Odin, etc.). Ole Elf Clyde looks more like a conventional elf: short and fat, a Santa's helper, or a keeper of the pots of gold at the ends of the rainbow, which one can never catch even in the fastest of cars or airplanes.
