Fog and Bell Ringers

The warm weather creates beautiful foggy days to ride a bike.  Especially on the waterfront where the cold water meets the warm air.  It’s like riding in a cloud.  My commute to the Salvation Army where I drive the bell ringers is the best part of the day.

The pool of bell ringers is down this year which makes for a very large deficit compared to last year.  After the word got out about the corundum a few people volunteered to help out and man a station.  This family was offered to my territory today.  They only worked two hours and in that short time, they collected more money than any other one day pot, that by the way, have eight hours to fill.  A mother with a ukulele singing carols with her two boys opens hearts and wallets.
