Many 'angels' stop to help with flat tire

There are angels in Hernando County. I recently had a flat tire and found myself on the side of the road. After calling AAA for assistance, I waited for the truck. While waiting, not one, two or three, but at least five people stopped by to lend me a hand. They offered to change the tire, asked if I needed to contact someone and even gave me a bottle of cold water while I waited.

The last gentleman who stopped just got out of his truck and started changing the tire so I could get out of the hot sun. The AAA truck showed up and topped off the air pressure for the "doughnut" tire, and I was on my way.

I have never been so blessed and taken care of than by the angels in Hernando County. You know who you are.
