The Hat



This young man helps his parents with their booth at the Pepper Place Market each Saturday.  Last summer I took the shot on the left from afar.  Last week, he gave me a big smile!

That is an Australian stockman's hat ... not last year's, but this year's ... and that is a most beguiling smile.

Pride and a pinch of shyness are the words I was looking for.

He looks like a really nice, happy kid! Do you miss teaching when you see kiddos like him?

Thanks for the details, Julie. This boy looks to me like he's already a prize for the ladies. A charmer who doesn't know it--know what I mean?
