It's cold out. 

People are almost frantic, reaching over the fence for blankets, seasonal clothing and especially warm gloves, mittens and scarves.

Can I take your picture?

Some motioned "No" with hands covering their faces.

Some said "Yes" and posed. Best of all was
 opportunity to preview the portrait.  

We were all so excited.
Don't we look GREAT!!

"I'm hungry, but you can take my picture."

These "twins" posed for several shots until we got the one everybody liked.

"Yes, go ahead.  Take our pictures."

"Let's get together for a group shot." 

These two "characters," seem to enjoy every minute of life.

Wash the urns and put everything away for next week.

Job well done. 

The four guys pose again.

They served others; they shared themselves; they nourished their souls.
