The Generosity of Friends

VW Polo
VW Polo - ‘Marco’

We’re lucky enough to have lots of friends - friends, who over the years, have been very generous to us.

Today was another of those times when we were ‘bowled-over’ by a someone’s actions.

Lee, our good friend of many years, told us today, that after a lifetime of driving, she’s decided to hang-up her car keys. What Lee did next was amazing! She gave me her current car! The loud thunk that followed was my jaw hitting the floor! Amazing!!!
Surprised smile
Being without a set of wheels since I retired in January last year meant a small loss of independence, but I was slowly getting used to it - and today therefore, came as a very pleasant surprise, and I’m looking forward to getting behind the wheel. As a thank-you, I’ve offered to be her taxi-driver-for-life!
