A Dog With a Health Care Plan

As I was climbing up the stairs at the subway station, an MTA construction worker was climbing down, carrying a ladder. “You still play?” he asked me.

Just Keep It Down

A nice lady helped me carry my busking cart up the stairs at the subway station, even though she herself had a load of bags to carry. Some people are so kind! There were three Nortenos on the train, playing bass guitar, regular guitar and accordion. They were wearing white straw hats that had...
