...for helping with tire during rainstorm
During a rainstorm on Saturday, Aug. 30, I had the misfortune to run over a water connection cover turned bottom-side-up on the road to Douglas. The result was a immediate blowout of a rear tire. I pulled over near a townhouse and made my way, shrouded in a raincoat, to the front door, hoping someone would be home and allow me to use their telephone. There I was warmly greeted by the Ed Leonard family, and before I was even off the phone from calling my husband for help, Mr. Leonard was out in the rain (and risking his backside in the traffic) changing my tire. He was so amiable and competent-behaving as though it was his pleasure to do that task.
I had been in the midst of a very busy day when the blowout occurred, and thanks to Mr. Leonard, what could have been a major inconvenience was at most a 15-minute delay.
Thank you, Ed Leonard, and your family as well, for your friendliness, kindness, and helpfulness. People like you are truly an asset to this wonderful community.
