Wavey Guy

There was a "Wavey Guy" in Ottumwa who would regularly stand near an intersection and wave at people. In fact, most of the time, IIRC, he would actually stand in the intersection -- in the raised median of a divided road. This was in the intersection near Wendy's, Pizza Hut and KFC -- right where Ferry St. turns into Wapello St.. Well, right here, actually:

As the buses left Evan's to head north, we would go right by him. All of us bus kids would wave at him, and he just loved waving back -- often with the double-handed wave! A few people said that he had some kind of mental problem, others said he was a shell-shocked war hero. Then again, maybe he was just a guy that really liked waving at people.

This is not him, just clip art.
