A perfect stranger had paid for our order?

We saw a large black SUV, not one we recognized, disappear up the road.


Author’s comment: It might be naïve of me suggesting why don’t we all take a moment to show such an act of kindness? From time to time. A simple gesture. Someone who didn’t want to be thanked. I’m sure she must have known it made our day.
