Sy comes home after his mother’s funeral to try to put the place in order.
He goes up to the attic to look around and finds an old trunk.
Looking in it, he discovers his father’s WWll uniform.
Sy tries it on and it’s a little tight on him.
Before taking it off, he puts his hand in the pocket and comes up with a ticket.
Looking at it, he finds a shoe repair ticket for Herman’s on West 53rd, dated January 14th, 1945.
He can barely believe it. An unclaimed ticket 61 years old.
Weeks later, Sy happens to be in the area of West 53rd and wanders over to see where the shoe repair was.
He can’t believe his good luck, the shoe repair store is still there.
He wanders in and tells the story of finding the ticket to the old shoemaker.
The man says his name is Herman and has owned the shop for 65 years.
“Gimme the ticket” says Herman and wanders to the back of the shop.
Sy is amazed.
What good fortune!
What a coincidence!
Only in America!
Herman comes back.
“I’ve still got your shoes. They’ll be done Friday!”
