The first one's free...

Four inches of snow fell overnight.
Younger Son is out shoveling sidewalks and driveways.
Yes, plural.

He's been itching to get a job and earn money.
We pointed out to him that we are surrounded on three sides by older widowladies.
And next summer, the city comes through and installs sidewalks on both sides of the street throughout the neighborhood.

He is not just shoveling.
He is advertising.

He made $6.50
Says he'd have been happy with $2.

That's one smart kid you've got there! I wish I had been so enterprising in my younger years.

I wish my 11 year old would have that much get up and go.

$6.50 would be a bargain here!

Just so long as he is not infringing on your mystery snowblower guy's turf. Heh.
