    :heart: Recently I had a day filled with encounters from some of the sweetest and kindest people. One example from that day was that I was pulled over on the side of the rode and a man stopped to help. He not only helped but he spent the better part of an hour doing so. He did not leave me until everything was under control. He had his young son with him who was also very kind and quite patient as his father worked on my car. (did I mention it was 104 degrees outside?) Anyway, it was a extremely kind of them!!!

    Do you have any stories of human kindness to share?

    I once got stuck on an unplowed road while bringing my boys to my Moms house (she did our daycare for a few years). A wonderful couple helped me get unstuck and a friend from up the road came with his plow and made me a spot on the side of the road so that when the city plow came through my car wouldn't get hit. They then drove me to the house in their Surburban. I know they were late to work because of it, but I'll never forget their kindness. Now that we have a surburban we're getting the materials to tow cars should someone be stuck that we can help out.

    Must be nice being a woman in those situations. :) Being a man, people throw stuff at you and yell as they go by.

    It's probably just you, Graig. You have that gleam in your eye that makes people want to throw things. :razz:

    Is that what it is? I was on the road bike riding along, minding my own business. Next thing I know I get nailed with a slushy. The worst part was the guy wasted a blue raspberry slushy. Next worst part was I was blue.

    I love your insults Terri. :)

    I know. :sexywink:

    I think that had more to do with someone hating anyone on a bike. We bikers do get treated strangely by bike-haters. :hug::
