Just went out with Sweetheart, shade taking over and an elegant coolness starting for evening (still roasting in the sun) and put a new chalkboard quote up.
When I got done and was walking away, a young fellow slowed down in his silver pickup truck (a kid in the back bed ), shirtless, cap, wrap around shades, stopped and read the board:
"My formula for success is rise early,
and strike oil"
~ J Paul Getty.
Guy says, "We just went down to go swimming and were so disappointed nothing was on the board. So happy to see something now on."
I held up and showed my thick piece of chalk.
The guy smiles.
"Have a Great Day!"
Big wave goodbye.
Old America just paid old America a visit
all's well, Bob
