The things we do for love
Ahh... to be young and broke and in love. My husband and I had a lot of experience with that. Floyd and Ruth Schmoe climbed Mt. Rainier in the winter of 1922 in order to take a job - using only the telephone wire, which was sometimes buried under the snow, as their guide to the Paradise Inn which was to be their home for the year. I used to complain about delivering the Baltimore (Sunday) Sun on foot in Columbia, Maryland, but I had it easy.
