On the day before Thanksgiving, after having spent the previous day having what I thought were snow tires put on our Volvo wagon, I was coming back in the snow and slush from delivering our dog to boarding in Yarmouth, when I slid off Greely Road in Cumberland opposite Doughty Road. As I was reaching for my cell phone to call my son in Cumberland Center, I looked out the window to see a young man who had been driving by in a pickup truck shoveling out the wagon. I do not know who he was, and because Doug Pride Sr. also stopped and helped the young man push me out, I never got the chance to thank him ( or Doug), as I felt the need to keep moving. By the way, I had inadvertently had the shop put on the summer tires from our other car. All is now corrected, but I wanted to publicly thank the unknown owner of the pickup ( as well as Doug Pride Sr.), who took the time to get me out of the snow bank.
