Help Your Elderly Neighbors with Snow
I was driving by Alabama and 27th Terr on my way home to the country this afternoon. The corner of that intersection to be specific. An Octogenarian was shoveling the "snow plow shelf" at the end of his driveway. Shoveling is generous, tiny bites would be more specific. I turned on my way to Louisiana and then found myself circling around the block. I could not go home without offering my assistance. It took me 10 minutes to do what he could accomplish in an hour. And I'm a 56 yo woman! Where were his neighbors??? Surely they know he is there. When I was done, he asked me if I "lived around here".
