About Pastor Dan

Saturday, October 09, 2004

I've been doing more work out in the yard today: raking up two big garbage bags of leaves and dead grass, spreading corn germ to feed the good stuff and starve the bad. Took about two hours all told, plus time to go across town and do the yard of the Jen's co-worker Emma, who was kind enough to lend us her broadcast seeder.

One of the things I'm getting used to as I work in the yard is having people stop to ask for directions. It's what comes of living on a corner on a busy street, the first real place anyone has to stop and talk to someone as they come off the highway. I try to be pleasant and helpful; it's a form of hospitality, after all. I'm even thinking about making own little mini-map to hand out to people.

Today was no exception. Had two sets of folks pull over while I was working. The first were a couple from New York--stereotypically so. Broad accents, the guy doesn't even say hello or anything--just "How do you get to Route 30 East?" I actually went them one better and directed them out to the heart of Amish country. You won't find it except by accident or asking a local. There was also a middle-aged woman, looking for Dutch Wonderland (why are they always looking for Dutch Wonderland? Could it be that the Amish Monorail attracts that many tourists?) I got her turned around and on her way as well.

Ah well. In the end it's not a big deal. Just something to feel good about at the end of the day.
