Street repair crew captivates senior



“Once we believe in ourselves, we can risk curiosity, wonder, spontaneous delight, or any experience that reveals the human spirit.” —e. e. cummings.

The constant pounding sound of a jack hammer pummeling a sidewalk into smithereens; the clunky sound of steel caterpillar treads rolling along on a concrete pavement ; and the large pieces of construction equipment parked along the side of the road. There are things that attract the curiosity of folks who want to be near the action and see what’s going on. It’s a natural inclination to be curious about life.

This curious senior ventured out the other day to see for himself what all the commotion was about happening at the end of his private dead-end street.

He stood behind the safety barricades and not only chatted with the workers but  watched the earth moving  machinery tear its way through cracked and crumbling cement blocks.

He proves that you can never really be that old to not want to increase your depth of knowledge of things going on around you.
