  Easter Island Resident Lost in Hudson-Florida I found this guy sitting on a front lawn near a listing I have. He’s obviously lost and looks rather confused. Maybe I should have pointed out the way to Easter Island for him. I wonder if he has an iPad? He looks to be deep in thought. Wonder what he's thinking about? Probably just enjoying our wonderful Spring weather here on the west coast of Florida-maybe he's looking to buy a house.
