I would like to thank the stranger that stopped to help my elderly parents change their tire on the road somewhere near Tularosa.

My parents had a tire blow-out on their fifth-wheel today and a young man stopped to help them. My Mom couldn't quite remember his name but thought it was Adam. (She knows he used to work for the electric company in Ruidoso and now works for the electric company in Alamo & was returning from a funeral) He offered his assistance, backed his truck up and into the traffic lane to force people to give them room and then helped my Dad (who just came back from seeing a back surgeon in Alamo) change the tire on the rig. He wouldn't accept anything but thanks.

My parents & I are grateful to him for stopping and lending a hand.

You know who you are! Thank you very much!!!

My parents were really impressed with him and his kindness. I wish I had his full name so I could send him a thank you. It's worrisome to have parents on the road so I am glad there are still good people out there to help them when I can't.

But wait, Soggy, didn't I read somewhere recently that YOU helped out a stranger in Albuquerque? Do you think that in some cosmic way, your kind deed is coming back to help your own family?

Oh, look, here it is--I Should Have Went Bowling--your own kindness to a stranger in need.
