While downtown I had a small mishap partly due to the weather conditions (I won't mention what kind!) and poor timing. I slipped, fell and broke my arm on Aug. 18 of this year. While I was lying on the sidewalk a very kind shopkeeper came to my (and my daughter's) assistance by calling for an ambulance. He also supplied us with a blanket to put under my head and an umbrella for her to hold over me when it started to rain. It is my daughter's impression that this man worked in one of the jewelry stores right by where I fell, which was across from the first cruise ship dock. I would now like to take this opportunity to thank him, as I never got the chance to it then. He helped to make an unpleasant situation a lot better.
So thank you, kind sir, your thoughtfulness was very greatly appreciated.
