Visiting a town about an hour’s drive from my home turf, I saw this “neighborly” greeting. Apologies for the scruffy look, but given the sentiment, a decided reticence to spiff things up seemed to be the wisest course. Even pausing to take the picture was a bit nervewracking. First, a hurried look to make sure no one was walking across the parking lot, then a quick, swooping shot to immortalize part of the reason the area has fallen on hard times. It is a cold and snowy place, but the hearts of many of the area’s residents will never melt.
