The Kindness of Strangers

Recently my five-year-old daughter and I rode our bikes to Ray's to do some grocery shopping. On our way out of the store, she fell down and stood standing in the parking lot crying and not wanting to ride home.

Recently my five-year-old daughter and I rode our bikes to Ray's to do some grocery shopping. On our way out of the store, she fell down and stood standing in the parking lot crying and not wanting to ride home. Fortunately I had my bike trailer and could put her in there with the groceries. I was going to leave her bike at the store and come back later to pick it up. A stranger in the parking lot watched the scene and came over and offered to drive her bike back to our house. He arrived at our house with the bike just as we pulled up with the trailer. My daughter really wanted to send him a thank you note, but we only caught his first name. So, a big thank you to Ted for bringing home the bike. Chivalry is not lost and that's one of the things that makes Bend great.

So Ted, "Thank You!" from Morgaine.

Sincerely,

Jenni Peskin and Morgaine, Bend
