That is the farmer from Newcastle that sells peaches at the market. He is a character. But Fred Beckey died two years ago.

Hahahaha! Ryan, of course it is. He just looks like Fred. I asked him if he’d ever heard of Fred Beckey and he hadn’t. A woman behind me chimed in, “He DOES look like Fred Beckey .”  His peaches are past their prime, BTW.

At some point, we're all Fred Beckey.

At some point, our peaches are past their prime, too.

Ask him about Columbia next time you see him.
