Tip of the Hat

Saturday, September 29, 2012 - 12:01 am

The week of Sept. 10, my flag got caught on the top of the flag pole. I couldn't reach it. Many thanks to a man driving down the street who stopped and got it down for me. Such a nice thing to do. Thank you so much. It was much appreciated.

Tip of the hat to the reunion committee for the wonderful party and turnout for the 1972 Central Catholic High School reunion. A great turnout. Everyone enjoyed the get-together. We look forward to seeing everyone at our 50th.

I would like to thank Travis of Travis Auto Service for stopping and helping my wife and me on Hillegas Road last month. Our vehicle was overheating, and we pulled into a parking lot and opened the hood. Before I knew it, a pickup truck with a father and daughter pulled into help. Travis was still wearing his work shirt (probably after a hard day) looked over our vehicle, used the water from his daughter's thermos (soccer practice) and got us back on the road. His act of kindness will definitely be remembered.
