Also SouthernCelt, you wrote that "... he would occasionally carry on conversations with himself, so I guess he was "twissed tight" himself."
It may have been a typo*, but if you meant to say that the old man was eccentric, and/or he had a screw loose, your sentence would read "so I guess he wasn't twissed tight himself."
I know a lot about typos.
