Now that I'm vaccinated, back to restaurants and bars, and considering that many are still understaffed, I've been increasing my tip amount.

I have always over tipped, more so now than ever. My wife and I both worked in food service before college. I feel those folks’ pain.

Everyone is a fan of splitting tips until they get a honking big tip, then it is all “but this is MY tip!”

It's 2021, and any act of kindness, large or small, give me a glimmer of hope and admiration.

Imagine the change in someone's life to receive a windfall like that. Particularly a food server.

That's just so cool, it can't be calculated.

That read brought back memories. I know the town of Londonderry well. I grew up in the apple orchards in the backyard and the wood that was chopped and split. The streams with trout. The freshest water out of the wells and a time when people were nicer. A kid on a bmx or toboggan was common. Heck I was that kid. Warms my heart to hear that about somewhere I lived and learned. It was a different era when I was there as the the last time I was there the things I loved were ghosts of the past. The orchards are now townhomes the quiet streets are busier than ever. Guess that’s what happens when you move somewhere that is off the grid but very close to the city as Londonderry sits 35 minutes north of Boston. I see the same thing happening all over Florida Kissimmee was nice 37 years ago and Daytona was 22 years ago but now it looks like it is time to start looking again.

Thank you for posting this conjurer it sure did bring back some good memories.
