On May 21 my car suddenly and hopelessly died on Highway 240, in the blazing noon-day sun. Without cell phone, I began walking the approximately 2-mile distance to the nearest accessible phone.
A young couple, Paul Bactad and Maggie McClain, stopped and gave me a ride to my waiting wife at the Canal Drive Burger King. Life went uphill from there.
Many thanks to a kindly young couple, to give an old guy in need a ride on a hot day.
Don Lanning, age 70
