Cleaning Up

This is the 7th day of Jim Webster’s latest blog tour. Today he’s the guest of Annette Rochelle Aben. First, is the story of Sandy the Sweeper an enterprising child who cleans certain streets in Port Naain to make a living. Second, there are two humorous and entertaining Kindle books by Jim Webster with various stories about the characters of Port Naain. Reviews of both books are included.

Sandi the Broom is a sweeper. According to Mutt, who I suspect may be
considered definitive in these matters, she was the first. As far as I can
make out, she abandoned what had been her home and at the age of about six
or seven took to the streets to fend for herself. At some point, she acquired
a broom. Whether she brought it to the streets with her or picked it up
there, nobody has been able to tell me. Also, within a week or two of
arriving on the street, she found a bucket as well.
Her method of working is simple. She will start at one end of a street and
just sweep it clean until she arrives at the other end. Horse muck and
similar goes into the bucket. Small coins and other potentially valuable
items are tucked into pockets secreted about her clothing.
