canny soul 
[kan-i səʊl] Scottish noun
"A person of quiet wisdom and empathy, indifferent to the vanities of man."
This picture of Bill Murray has hung on our wall since we opened. Then one day he walks in off the street, signs it, rolls up his sleeves, and helps serve our customers. This man is a genuine canny soul.  It's a lifestyle choice!
