By his own admission, Al Eufrasio is no Weird Al.
It’s just he has this great sense for mystery, intrigue and strangeness.
“I wasn’t overly obsessed, but I was adventurous. I would go exploring ditches and things,” said Eufrasio, who grew up in his native New Jersey before moving to Auburn 13 years ago. “I would like to find clues and discover the story behind things.”
In doing so, the video game artist and animator also found he had a way with words. He wrote about what he found in his travels and began to put accounts together in a recently released book, “Weird Washington: Your Travel Guide to Washington’s Local Legends and Best Kept Secrets” (Sterling Publishing Co., $19.95).
