Blog Special: Looking for a Volunteer

I have an idea.

Certainly you are familiar with the Burl Ives seasonal classic, “Have a Holly Jolly Christmas.”

Well, you know the line “Say hello to friends you know and everyone you meet”?

What if someone actually did that?

I propose that we find out.

Before Christmas, on a date to be selected later, I intend to spend one hour walking around downtown Spokane saying “Hello” to everyone I meet.

But I want someone to help me. Your assignment, should you choose to accept it, would be to occasionally spell me on the nonstop greeting of strangers and maybe help out with the notes-taking.

You would need a good attitude and a decent pair of walking shoes.

And don't worry. You will not be asked to say “Kiss her once for me.”
