Shoeshine Man

In the lobby of the hotel we stayed at in Nashville there was a shoeshine bench. The man was only there Tuesday-Thursday and Will had been enjoying sitting on it and I was trying to explain to him what it was there for. When we checked out Tuesday morning the man was there and I asked Will if he wanted to get his shoes shined. I asked the man, whose name was James, if he would be willing to do a pretend shoeshine for a few dollars. He said, of course!

Will watched intently as he went through the various steps of a shoeshine. Mr. James was very nice and he and Will talked about New York City (I can’t even remember how this topic came up,but Will said he liked riding on an airplane and playing on the playground – which is something we did on our last trip to the city.)

Will was so proud of his freshly shined shoes! When Mr. James said he was all done, Will sat up so straight with the biggest smile on his face!

    How funny: There isn’t anyone that Will can’t
    carry on a conversation with, is there? IF politics
    weren’t so corrupted maybe WIll could be President and get things worked out in the future!!!

    That is so neat. You dont see shoeshine men anymore. When I was in Jr, High, we used to get our loafers shined a couple of times a week downtown. It felt so good and it only cost maybe a dime or so.
