Meet Hap.

He runs a roadside fruit and veggie stand in a rural part of North Carolina and has been here since moving from Pennsylvania in '58.

Business has been fair, but he can't worry himself about it.

I bought a watermelon for $3, shook his hand and drove away.

Meet Hap. A nice man.

(He looks even better in lightbox, btw...)

    Excellent memories ! it can't be an easy job but I think fruit and veggie stands are becoming more popular these days with shoppers who like to buy fresh produce where the price is right! Got my vote!
