Good Sa­mar­i­tan

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FEEDBACK -

I THINK it good that the on­set of tourism to our “pretty lit­tle re­gion” hasn’t di­min­ished a lot of the good old-fash­ioned val­ues.

Years ago I had a col­li­sion with a huge wal­la­roo jump­ing into the head­lights of my then-boyfriend’s mo­tor­bike which I was rid­ing with my boyfriend on the back.

As a con­se­quence of in­juries I re­ceived, both of my an­kles are painful to walk on, es­pe­cially when go­ing up­hill and es­pe­cially col­lect­ing my mother’s rub­bish bins to take to the near­est road for col­lec­tion.

So then “St Christo­pher” springs into ac­tion - oth­er­wise known as Christo­pher Dwyer who lives in a house be­low mum.

This lad must have the great­est sense of com­pas­sion as it’s al­ways no trou­ble what­so­ever to take these bins down the road for us.
