A retired carpenter who goes by “Cowboy Sam” has been making an impression on the community. Keith Ross is occasionally spotted walking up and down the sidewalk on Main Street in Cambridge, strumming his guitar and singing a tune for passersby. Ross, who said he lives in the community, enjoys playing for people, who smile, wave, take pictures or give him the peace sign. “It makes me happy that other people are happy,” he said. “I play for smiles.” Photo by Elizabeth Sias
