Things are a bit better. Although it's -11 f outside and it's sinking in that my first nursing class will convene at 8 am in the morning. :)

But that's nothing -- the last week of the course we'll be starting at 6:30 am. OH DEAR LORD

But here's a nice thing that happened Sunday. I was coming back to my car from a group snowshoeing thing and it was COLD. I dumped all by gear into the trunk, and just as it shut, I spied my car keys amongst my stuff. And of course I'd forgotten my cell phone at home.

I walked over to a service station and saw a public utilities truck outside. The driver was just returning with a cup of joe, and I hailed him, hoping -- feebly -- that he might have something to jig my car.

He did not. But you know what he did do? He called his boss, then gave me a lift to my house, waited while I grabbed a spare key, and returned me to my car. :D

Did I mention how cold it was that morning? How little I could afford to call a tow? That guy (his name was Todd) saved me a world of grief. He was just being nice. Super, super Midwestern Nice -- I snicker about Midwestern Nice but by gad it was welcome that day.

I got his name and his permission to write a letter to OPPD praising him. Just put the stamp on it. :)
