WOW… I’ve never had a thing like that directed my way. Thank you.
My wife does a lot of my posting on the keyboard, as well as reading me things here. I don’t see all that well anymore in my right eye and age is starting to visit me more often.
I was outside watering my lawn (it’s been brutal heat here in Springfield, Massachusetts) when my Mrs. asks me to come and see this. I stand over her shoulder while she reads your posting, and then - dead silence. We both just looked at the monitor and said nothing. Now my Mrs. is a very sentimental lady - anything like puppies, kittens, and warm and fuzzy stuff gets to her. She couldn’t stop talking about your post for the rest of the evening.
I did something like what you did for a work crew two years ago just outside of Northampton, Massachusetts. These guys were working on an entrance ramp leading to I-91. A State Trooper was doing a road detail there also. When I stopped back, pulled over and dropped off a gallon of lemonade a dozen of paper cups, they all were very appreciative along with the eagle eye of the State Trooper who promptly told me that my inspection sticker was out of date by two months. He looked at me with that look that only a State Trooper can give, poured a glass for himself, then turned and walked away. I really developed a taste for lemonade after that, big time.
