My vote for Michigan's best salesperson
|I can only image the talent required to rent ice to people in Michigan. |
|Much of the year you can harvest all you want for free.|
|The weather-guessers predict almost perfect weather: Highs in the seventies and lows in the fifties. Great weather for camping. We still need rain although folks to the north and south of us are in better shape.|
High viz shirts
I took Mrs ERJ to a doctor's appt yesterday at 4:00 yesterday.
On the way home we saw an older woman on a bicycle fall. She was moving very slowly and she jogged a little bit to avoid a turning vehicle at the corner of Forest and Aurelius road in Lansing. Her front wheel hit the curb and down she went.
Traffic was moderately heavy as it was 5:00 PM on a weekday.
Her companion, another older woman but with small stature was unable to get her back up.
Since we were at a corner, I put the minivan in park, flipped on the hazard lights, opened the door, looked both ways and scooted across the Forest road.
She said she was fine but she had artificial knees and just needed a hand.
Even though I have my own mobility issues, I had plenty of physical strength to help her lever herself off the ground. In fact, I was worried that I would hurt her as I felt her joints snap, crackle and pop as I steadied her one arm.
Gimping back to the van I thought..."Man, that was stupid. City street, gray clothing...what was I thinking?" There were three vehicles stacked up behind the van by the time I got the woman steady on her feet.
Mrs ERJ agreed that given my history it would not hurt me to wear a high-viz shirt every time we went into a town/city the size of Lansing.
