Fireworks - a little early

So yesterday was a big day.
We were taking John's mom out to dinner
for her birthday.
And Marina was contracting,
so she headed to the hospital.

Therefore I made a plan:
1. Stop at Walgreens for cards.
2. Stop at Oakmont Bakery for the cake.
3. Drop Luci off at my aunt's in Shadyside.
4. Drop cake off at the restaurant.
5. Go to hospital to see Marina for a little
6. Go back the restaurant for dinner
7. Go back to the hospital

I got as far as #2.

When I wanted to leave the bakery,
my car wouldn't start.

I went back into the bakery and found someone with jumper cables
I ended up having 2 different groups of people helping me.
I was able to get some juice from the jumps,
just not enough to get the car going.

So a Good Samaritan (seriously) came by -
he drove to an Advanced Auto shop,
bought a battery,
came back to the bakery,
and installed it.

I didn't have enough cash on me,
so he just gave me his card,
and trusted me to send him a check.

It 's so nice to know that there are
people like that in this world.
