Road­side thanks

Isis Town and Country - - Opinion -

MAY I through your col­umn ex­press my grat­i­tude to the two mo­torists on Gin Gin Road, (Wed 24.2.16) about 4-4.30pm who had the un­timely mis­for­tune to hit my lit­tle dog near the Ten Mile Rd junc­tion. To the young per­son who called the phone num­ber on her col­lar. I thank you very much for your de­cency in con­tact­ing me to let me know what had hap­pened. To add to the con­fu­sion, I was wait­ing for the re­sults of a blood test think­ing it was that call that was com­ing through. Also, thanks to the gent in the car fol­low­ing who stopped and di­rected traf­fic around the scene un­til they got the lit­tle one off the road. She would have been dead be­fore she knew what hit her. Nor­mally she fol­lowed me when I fed the chooks and col­lected the eggs. What­ever caused her to go out to­wards the road in the first place I’ll never know. Again to the driver of the car that hit her, don’t blame your­self. It was one of those tragic ac­ci­dents when­ever we hit any­thing on the road, be it bird or an­i­mal it al­ways leaves us feel­ing lousy for quite some time af­ter, and rest as­sured I bear you no an­i­mos­ity. Once again I sin­cerely thank both of you for the de­cency and cour­tesy of the phone call and the re­di­rect­ion of the traf­fic. I Har­ri­son Sharon
