Caught these rascals chalking up the sidewalk across the street and asked if they’d be willing to also do a couple squares in front of our house. They politely agreed. And though they didn’t ask for or expect to be paid, they were happy to earn five bucks each for the commissioned murals and another five to buy more chalk.
Hopefully they’ll continue to use their Covid-19 pandemic downtime productively to brighten up more of the neighborhood; and occasionally be rewarded for their civic and entrepreneurial spirit.
It’s nice to see the positive side to this drama.
