This is an old story but one worth telling. Along time ago and far, far away, Mary and Brad tie on their shoes and grab the last bags as they head for the door. It is 5 AM and they are about to embark on an amazing journey, one that they have planned for some time. Well, as things will sometimes go, a surprise is about to be part of the early days of this adventure. As Brad closes the laundry room closet door he notices something odd, water on the floor. “Hmmm, that is strange”, he thought. Being a very seasoned mechanic he knew exactly what it was. The 11 year, 2 month old water heater was leaking. Brad and Mary were both very sad. This was not a good time for something like this to happen. Determined not to let this ruin the trip and out the door they went.
That evening after a long day on the road, Brad called a good friend. He was very good with plumbing. Brad told Joe what had happened. Even though Joe is a very busy man, he told Brad not to worry. He went to the house to assess the scope of the problem. He knew just what to do; bought and installed the new heater, removed and disposed of the old one.
You see, Brad was a wise man with one very good friend. Thank you Joe, you are the best!
The moral of this story is the same as life. We need help every now and then and value of good friends is immeasurable.
