All good stuff!

I’ve been helped more than once and do my share when needed.

A lady had hooked up her bumper pull camper at the storage lot. I was there, checking on my 5’er, and followed her out the gate. About 3 blocks later, as she turned onto a main, 4-lane street, her hitch slid out of the receiver. She dragged the trailer by the safety chains into the center (5th), lane. I stopped in front of her truck and offered help. First we chocked her camper. She was pulling the jack out of her truck when 2 oil company service trucks pulled up. 2 guys much younger than me, jumped to the task as a city police officer parked his truck, lights on, to provide a safer work place. All done in 10 minutes. A very embarrassed lady was thankful and promised not to forget her hitch pin again.

I had a kid named Ross Freeman in SC change the tire on my enclosed without even being asked---just went over there and changed it.

I passed out a couple of years ago in FL and kids were watching my every move as I was nearing 80. I went to a race in TN by myself this past July and George Windsor from MD came to my DP every morning to check on me.

But what goes around comes around as I have helped a few myself.

I'll share my good deed story:
About 10 years ago I was driving to Walmart to get a prescription filled. I round a corner to find a car stopped in the road. He was in a blind spot to where if I was going any faster I would have hit him.

I stopped to ask if he needed any help. An elderly man sitting behind the wheel said he ran out of gas and was waiting for his daughter to come help. I told him he was in a bad spot so I'm going to back up about 50 yards and sit there with my flashers on so nobody will hit him, and I did.

About 10 minutes later his DD and SIL show up with gas and got him going. He drives off and his DD waves me on. As I'm driving past her she stops me to thank me. She's holding out a $100 bill insisting I take it. I proceed to tell her I don't need it and to not ruin a good deed with money. She insisted and said "you don't need it but you will meet someone that does". I reluctantly accepted her gift.

And sure enough, 10 minutes later, I'm standing in line at the pharmacy counter behind and elderly man of color of limited means. I couldn't help but overhear their conversation. He didn't have enough funds to cover all his prescriptions. They were trying to determine what he really needed at that time and what could wait until the 1st of the month.

The DD was right, I would meet someone who really needed it. I butted in, apologized for interrupting and for getting into his business and offered to help. I told them the story of how I acquired this $100, and that the daughter of the old man in the street was actually his guardian angel.

The three of us were pretty emotional at that point, especially me, so I placed the bill on the counter and said "this was meant for you" and walked out of the store.

we frequent the local Cracker Barrel when the wife does not feel like cooking...
Over the past few months ( PRE PANDEMIC ) there was an elder man always sitting by himself eating... Always proudly wearing his Korean War Veteran hat with his pins..

Each time I would see him there, I would give his waitress money for his meal, and she was told to just say " Thank You" for his service.. I planned to sit next to him our next visit and talk, that never happened.. The pandemic hit, the place stopped serving sit downs, and now he has not been back...

I have asked the server I now know there and he has not been back .. I sure hope the old guy made it through this [email protected]
