As my wife and I were walking home from our breakfast at IHOP I stubbed my toe and fell off the curb to the street. My glasses went one way and the bags that I was carrying went the other and I was face down in the street. As my wife was struggling to help me to my feet, saying, "Are you okay?" a car from B.C. stopped behind us. The occupants stepped out to help. I said, "I don't think anything was broken." But I was hurting. The lady and gentleman from Surrey, B.C. asked if we had any bandages. I looked at my hands and they were bleeding. They grabbed a first aid kit from their car and proceeded to stop the bleeding and clean up my wounds. They insisted on taking us to our home, over a mile away. We give our thanks to the good Samaritans from Canada.
