 Care Rangers

Last night, my brother and I were driving on the dark and rain soaked Florida Turnpike when we saw yellow lights flashing ahead off to the side of the road.  The lights were on the top of a truck belonging to the Florida Road Rangers, a state run organization that, believe it or not, comes to the rescue to stranded drivers on major Florida roadways. The ranger was kneeling in the rain changing the tire of a sedan driven by an elderly citizen. 

 It reminded me of the time we were crossing what is known as "Alligator Alley" returning from our Fort Myers event late last year.  All of the sudden our car swerved having just blown out a front tire.  Before we could get to the highway patrol call box about a half mile down the road a Road Ranger approached us, changed the tire and drove off. 

Hey,  how about caregiver rangers?        


Take care
