He has been so glad to hang up his clod-stomping work boots in exchange for the black apron and Guest Check tablet. He has done outdoor work for years.

Now he is taking dinner orders from the most aged in our community at an assisted living facility near the college. He is still getting to know the old people he is serving. The other day a married couple was sitting at a table together. He went up to take their order and the old lady said (use your best old lady voice when you read this!), "Hi.
