One day, we went to the 

Everglades National Park

, which occupies all of the southern Florida peninsula.
"Robert Is Here" restaurant was our first stop.

There were so many containers of cucumbers, but no cars had stopped that day...
Robert's father was very surprised, and he said: "It doesn't seem that all these people do not like cucumbers. I suppose they just haven't noticed our little boy behind the containers". The next day, his father placed a tablet with an inscription in big red letters: "Robert Is Here". By noon, Robert had sold all the cucumbers, and came back home.
The next weekend, the farmer's neighbor had added his tomatoes to Robert's "kiosk" and everything was sold off again. To this day, Robert works in this very prosperous shop. Here's the same six-year-old boy from 1959:

There was a little zoo in the territory of Robert's shop.
