Waving at barber after a baseball game.

My son had just finished playing in a baseball game and we were walking to eat lunch at the drug store beside the barber shop. This 80 year old, kind hearted barber cuts my son’s hair. When my son saw the barber through the window my son got so excited and started waving at him at calling out his name! My son told him he just won his baseball game! The photo really captured by heart unlike no other. The combination of my son lovingly waving at his barber friend, our family name on his baseball uniform, and the barber shop that has been in this small Kentucky town (with the same barber) for over 50 years just screamed small town America at it’s finest!!
