The Old Man and the Sea

“Fish,” he said, “I love you and respect you very much. But I will kill you dead before this day ends.” Santiago, The Old Man and the Sea

Note: This man is not really old relatively speaking, and the sea is actually the Susquehanna River, but he seemed pretty determined to go fishing in such a dense fog. No guts no fish to gut I guess.

I was walking down the street and saw this man slowly picking up what looked like a pile of loose change near the curb. Turns out it was some cement covered pennies that ended up in the street somehow and he was thrilled to find them.

He seemed to be struggling so I asked if I could help. We finally got them all and he posed for a quick photo looking fairly happy I think, it was kind of hard to tell. I didn’t tell him that he’d need a grinder and a few hours of work before anyone would take them but I figured why ruin his day.

Find a penny, pick it up and all the day you’ll have good luck. I hope that turns out to be true for him.
