RAVE To the good Samaritan who returned my wallet that I’d dropped in a parking lot, bringing it to my door! Thank you with my whole heart for restoring my faith in humanity.
RANT To the woman running on the boulevard, allowing her off-leash dog to trail far behind her, obviously stressed trying to keep up. I caught up to her on my bike and asked if it was her dog, she said yes and that the dog has a urinary infection, which explained why the dog was stopping repeatedly to relieve herself. But please explain why you didn’t have your dog legally tethered, and why you forced her to run like that when she was obviously in distress? She’d have been better off at the vet before you went for your selfish run! Yet another form of animal cruelty by an irresponsible pet owner.
