After a night of violent rains the shack Pearlie Hines, right, has called home for the last 15 to 20 years (he can't remember specifically how long he's lived there) sustained roof damage. His friend Cleveland Booze, who has stayed with Pearlie for a few weeks, helps fix his roof. Over the years, Pearlie has let many homeless and traveling people stay with him. Some have stolen from him, and some have contributed. He takes contention with being labeled "homeless," because, while he lives off the grid, he has a home. "This is my castle."
