Kids these days

Dear Editor:

I was working on a new deck in my backyard in Salem, Plein Air Elora  (outdoor art competition and exhibition/sale) is on and an artist was working all afternoon painting a scene of the Irvine,  in the Salem veterans park.

Three boys, maybe 12 years old,  came along with fishing poles and I heard them ask the artist if they could throw their lines in, not wanting to bother her. They got the okay and cast and laughed and carried on. 

Then they were done and I heard, “Thank you, miss.” Obviously locals and obviously polite and thoughtful boys.

Well done.
