About Town: Looking for Work

Two-to-four hours a week ...

Last week Eric Michelson and I rode in the Model T for a few hours. After our jaunt through Lexington, Concord and Lincoln, I planned on volunteering at the store for a few hours to find out about the oldest shoe store in Lexington – and to learn why they are so good at selling shoes.

But, unless it’s a DPW directive, I’m not mowing anyone’s lawn or doing anyone’s housework!
