Curbside Couple.

FEBRUARY 5, 2008
To paraphrase the saying on the New York City Post Office Building: “Neither snow, nor slush, nor the blast of diesel fumes could stay these wavers from their appointed rounds.” I spotted Joe and Kim on Route 302 in Windham, waving at drivers passing in front of Liberty Tax Service. It was such miserable weather — cold, but not quite cold enough to snow, so a drizzling, icy rain soaked the couple as they stood curbside. But it didn’t dampen their spirits. There they were, chilled to the bone, I’m sure, but smiling, laughing, and doing little dances to entertain the passing traffic — and themselves, I suppose. Drivers waved back, big semis tooted their horns. I don’t know if they enticed prospective customers to stop, but they brightened my day.
