The Rocking Horse

Shirley Gibson-Langille


A magnificent Toy Shop with fabulous children's window displays. Life is like a Rocking Horse with its ups and downs. On Friday September 27th, 2013 things couldn't be better. It was a beautiful sunny day. I was so happy especially with my painting. Too happy! It was then I realized , I had left the key turned on in my car. Dead battery. I went in the Rocking Horse and met the staff Erienne and Liz and later the owner Monica Brown who kindly phoned CAA for me . I went back to my car to wait. It took two more calls to CAA . I waited two hours in the hot sun before they arrived. Did I learn from this experience. You bet I did. I now carry my own battery booster pack in my car.
