Snap! snap! great big fishy snaps!
This lovely pelican is not just a wistful reminder of more relaxed days, but is also going to be a living virtual trophy (if that makes sense) that I will present to people who practice random acts of kindness to or near my life. I want you to imagine the pelican snapping its glorious beak in appreciation.
Today's pelican snaps are to the nice girl with a big tennis bag who scraped my sobbing son off the wet bike path after he skidded on some gravel and crashed his bike into a (short) cement pole, wiped his tears away and told him he'd be ok, then fished the last bandaid out of her bag to patch up his bloody knee. Thank you very much for not passing him by like others did. He's very grateful, and so am I, as I wasn't there. If he ever points to you on the path, I promise to thank you in person.
