Stalled-car rescuers

On Dec. 31, I was on the way over to the auto parts store to buy ignition parts for my car. Two miles from home, my car stalled and would not start.

I was stranded for two hours, but right after my car had stalled and I was unable to start it, a motorist stopped by and we called a towing service. While I was waiting for the tow truck, two girls in separate vehicles stopped by to see if I needed help. To all those people, including the towing service, who towed me home: thank you, God bless you and a holly jolly happy new year to you.
