this young man went door to door

offering his shovel and his time

(i hope by now he is back in school, the snow is gone, and i will awake in
brattleboro with spring on its lips)

Glad your snow is gone. It was a warm 60ยบ here in Brookville this morning when I got up at 5:15 AM.

We're going to be in the high 80s this week which is a little too warm a little too early! But, it's better than snow, me thinks.

Bopefully, your wishes will come true!

Terrific photo and am so pleased to see this industrious kid! Haven't seen a kid going from door-to-door with a snow shovel for decades!!

I did this as a kid - glad to know someone still wants to make pocket change!

Glad to hear it still doesn't look like this where you are.

Brings back memories, my brother and I shoveled the snow for an elderly lady who lived next door. Nice photo with the trees in the background.

Yes, I hope you've come home to warm temps and spring-a-bloomin'! Welcome home, brattcat.

I could have used him this winter.

It looks like there's a lot of shoveling to be done there Bratcatt. I hope you get your wish about spring.

This is one of the steps on the march toward adulthood in New England.
