Julia and Catherine (#464) 11-19-13

I saw two young ladies crossing a main street – one wearing a stylish hat and the other a kerchief of sorts. I followed several yards until they stopped at an outdoor kiosk selling plants. They both spent several minutes examining small cacti. Finally they each purchased one and began walking my way.

I asked them my usual favor, helping me with the 100 Strangers project. Both Julia and Catherine seemed genuinely surprised and eager to help. The took MOO cards and said that they looked forward to seeing the final images. Both live 20 miles south, very close to me.

I asked them what the best thing was about that morning. After a brief pause, each, almost simultaneously said “Getting this cactus!” as they held up the succulents.
