about this story

Behind the old Watkins building down town, a man named Billy Joe Johnson sat with his pet raccoon Frederic. Billy was homeless, he often slept in back alleys or under bridges, depending on the weather. As billy sat against the wall it suddenly occurred to him that he didn't like being homeless, and he knew he needed to find a way to make a living and find a home.
He decided to head to the desert, where he would try to find the rare green lizard cactus, and sell it to travellers, and rich voodoo doctors. So he grabbed Frederic and started to make his way out of the city. After several days, they finally made it to the bridge that separated the town from the forest. Without hesitation, Billy and Frederic crossed it. They spent the next 6 months travelling through winding forests and crossing wild rivers, until the woods finally thinned out to give way to fields. The journey had gone quite smoothly until that point, when they realized that they had no ropes, and the only way to cross the mountains was to go around them, which would take several more months. Finally they got to the desert, where they found thousands of rare green lizard cactuses. Billy and Frederic made so much money form them that they were able to retire on a lovely beach and do nothing for the rest of their lives.
