Neighborhood nicknames

Everyone is familiar with the idea of coming up with a nickname for a neighbor whose real name you don't know or can't remember.

Often these made-up monikers would be tough for a far-removed stranger to guess. But every morning I ride my bike past a certain home. And I have a guess about what the people who live nearby call the guy who lives there. I don't think they really have a choice.

The Front Yard Farmer.
