The Master of Disguise Meets a Stubborn Salesman

Late last year, Cooper decided to sell a candy cane... 
at the front door (too cold to be outside). 
He set up his post then taped his advertisement and candy cane to the front door.  Then he sat in his little yellow chair and waited for the customers to come pouring in...




He had a pretty high price tag (I'm think it was $2)... and wouldn't let us take pictures from the front.  So we took pictures from behind.
 He opened the door at one point and yelled at the neighbor across the street.  He was getting in his car - but it was a no go... He was not interested in a $2 candy cane.

His very nice big brother wanted him to have some success, so he offered to buy the candy cane.  Cooper flatly refused him.  
Cooper wanted a REAL customer.   
A very creative Harrison decided to disguise himself and give it a try.




He got ready and came walking down the street, trying his best to fool Coop, but...
Cooper said no.   He recognized Harrison's shoes and knew it was him!






Fortunately Harrison used a washable Crayola marker and not a Sharpie marker...


And in the end... I'm not sure what happened to that candy cane :)

That is a great story! A young entrepreneur and a wonderful big brother. That in itself makes for a happy ending, regardless of where the candy cane ended up!

How sweet is Harrison! And Cooper is so cute! When Ben was three he drew a goatee and glasses on his face with sharpie - so he could look like Dad. It took weeks to get off. Snaps to Harrison for having some foresight there. ;)

This is so sweet! I love the pictures and the 1 little candy cane taped to the front door. Makes me smile! Way to be, Harrison!
