Santa’s helpers


To the Editor:

Monday morning, while on a quick trip from Martha’s Vineyard Community Services to Tisbury Printer, I hit the curb before the roundabout and it totally ate the side of my tire — instant flat.

I called my husband, and he came right over, but when Molly (wish I knew her last name) saw us working on the tire change (we are 62 and 69 years old), she stopped and came right over to help. Then Fred Swartzman of New Jersey pulled right over and finished up the change, and loaded the tools and the tire into the trunk. Although buying a tire is not what we had in mind for Christmas, their generosity certainly infected us with the Christmas spirit. Thanks, Molly. Thanks, Fred.
