RAVE To the random strangers who came together on a busy street to rescue a duckling. My sister and I saw the duckling slip through a street grate as the mother herded her small family across the road. We saw no chance of rescue until a woman walking by showed us how to raise the grate. The poor duckling swam in circles far from our reach. A man living nearby rigged a small shopping basket to a strap and leaned into the muddy depths, at great risk to himself on this busy street, to rescue the duckling. The reunited family of three continued their waddle toward the Piper’s Creek Pond. Thanks to the goodness in everyone.
RANT To the individuals who designated Golden Gardens Drive as a bike path. It’s hard enough for car drivers to maneuver the narrow lanes and blind curves without having to deal with bicyclists weaving up the hill and flying down it.
