Hansville Sucker Lady

I love the small town I live in. We currently have a lot of construction on our highway which is the only way in and out of our area other than by boat. Most people around here wave at the construction people rather than yell or honk or flip the bird or whatever nutty thing stressed out people that are in too big of a hurry to get to Starbucks do. Today a lady in front of me who was driving the cutest little old red VW bug threw suckers out the window to each group of constructions workers we passed by. One looked baffled...but the next yelled It's the sucker lady!!! Then the men scrambled to pick up the treats. Sometimes the small things in life are more important than we realize. It was nice to see someone bringing joy instead of being grumpy. Thank you Sucker Lady.

That's so nice! Very "sweet" of her (oh, ack!) and maybe the inspiration for your next landscape?

In the DC area, people would go crazy and traffic would probably be backed up for hours... a slower pace sounds nice sometimes. :)
