An Act of Kindness – Thank you

On 27 April we (all over 70) had a blow out coming down a mountain pass near Villiersdorp in the Western Cape of South Africa. We were able to stop immediately. We were really struggling to change the wheel. Eventually a car stopped. It was Arnold du Preez of “Snail and Slug Solutions”. Arnold immediately offered to help us and after much effort was able to change the wheel. It was also dangerous for Arnold and us all because fast passing traffic was constantly rushing past about a meter from us. Thankfully were able to continue our journey,due to Arnold’s act of kindness.

The incident taught me an important lesson: All it takes is one act of kindness to make someone’s world a better place.

Thanks for the lesson Arnold – may we follow your example and be kind when next we come across a person in need, whatever that need may be.

Here is the link to Snail and Slug Solutions. Please support Arnold if you need his services.

Montagu. An exciting tractor ride. A delicious meal.

Just outside Montagu in the Western Cape you can go up a high mountain. It is amazing. You go in the trailer pulled by a tractor. What a view! At the end of the ride you come down to a magnificent lunch. Have a look at the pictures and you will see why it is a great thing to do. There are 7 pictures.

It is actually over 5,000 feet at the summit

A great choice of delicious food for lunch
