At Carpinito Bros. Pumpkin Patch last weekend, I asked a nice gentleman where to get the wheelbarrows as I grappled awkwardly with my big pumpkin on one hip and my smaller sugar pumpkin in the other hand. Over there, he motioned with head and hand. I followed his arm past the couple rows of wheelbarrows already occupied by pumpkins to a couple empty ones on the far side. Then I looked back to my left at the long lines by the veggie stands and back again at the distant wheelbarrows.
He must have seen my hesitation, because before I could decide which direction to walk, he said, But you can have this one and I'll grab another one, and lifted his big pumpkin out of the wheelbarrow right in front of me.
Really? Thank you so much!

Raymond Angel saves soles. With 103 years of experience and family history behind him, he now faces being pushed out by one of the many new shops coming to Seattle's Capitol Hill neighborhood. Let's help him find a new spot and organize a moving party. Moving his shop - with the heavy machinery that has been in his family for longer than many of us have been alive - will be a lot of work. But Angel's Shoe Repair is one of the last of its kind, and quite frankly, he saves the "souls" of my shoes. I'd like to see him keep practicing his craft. In our culture of disposability, here is a person who fixes our beloved shoes and shows us that being "broken" doesn't mean all is lost.
Stay in touch...
