    I will so love to do something nice for a stranger…thanks for sharing this.

  2. I like doing things for people, those I know and those I don’t

  3. I love the “new tires” story–awesome. And the Hokey Pokey clinic beings back a wave of memories–used to do that dance with my granny…. 🙂 thx Russ!

      Hi, Lori. I’d love to see a photo of you and your granny doing that dance! The thought brings a big smile to my face. I’ll bet it would be an adorable scene.

  4. I hear that Hokey Pokey clinic is a step program…;)

      The cool thing is that we all can. Something as easy as paying the toll of the car behind you to putting a coin in a an expired parking meter for someone else’s car can brighten the day of everyone involved. May you always feel welcome at my on-line home.
