Mild Mannered Gas Meter Salesman by Day...Superhero by...well...Day!

We had the slightest bit of winter weather this weekend. A little nothing really...melted by noon even. But as our day was just getting started yesterday morning, I looked out the window and saw a little problem across the street. A teen aged girl tried to take a turn too quickly...and ended up, as Lia would say, in a pickle.

After determining that the girls were not hurt, Jim didn't miss a beat in getting his boots on and rushing to their assistance. It took a little digging and quite a bit of pushing...but he got the car free. He was just finishing up changing the tire when the driver's Dad showed up.

Lia and I took it all in from the warmth of the living room...my new lens worked great in getting some close up shots of the action! Lia was actually really concerned for Jim which was so sweet...and when he came back in, she couldn't wait to surprise him with the hot chocolate we had ready!

Super Jim to the rescue!! He is such a sweet guy...I am sure the girls were very scared and happy to see someone coming to help out!!

I bet Jim was loving that hot chocolate Lia had all ready for her hero!

I love how dads are seemingly invincible to little girls and what a fine example he set for his daughter. And like you, I would have been happy to be in my warm living room with zoom lens to capture the action!
