Last Night's Excitement

About two thirty in the morning in the boat ramp parking lot at the end of
Lake Sutton road,which is a long rough dirt road, a car went by the truck.
In a few minutes I heard the car approach the truck and stop behind it.

The truck shook and it was apparent someone was on the back porch. Pepe
sprung to life, reading himself and finding his direction in amazing quick
time, just moments. Then there was a knock at the door.

I couldn't hear everything but someone was telling me they had a flat tire.
Not being able to see out the back door I didn't open it but rather talked
through it. More discussion came about and I offered to call them help. I
got a mom's phone number and called her to tell her that her kids were
stuck at the end of a long bumpy road with a flat tire.

After confirming what was going on I opened the door, with pepe at hand.
It was a 16 year old kid that was indeed in trouble. I could see the flat
tire on the car. He thanked me and I confirmed I was able to reach his
mom. I bet he had a long night.

A little while later I heard what I assume was a wrecker come pick up the

Sometimes I guess people just need a little help.
