The kindness of strangers

I'm really not amazed by the generosity of people. In the news biz, despite all the bad news, we encounter lots of good people, doing good deeds, without much of a reward.

So it's nice that a good deed has helped me complete the laundry room. I asked a colleague where I could get a butcher block countertop from IKEA cut into two pieces. He suggested a friend at his church who is a cabinet maker.

He took the pieces to his friend and returned them, in beautiful condition.

A week later, I'm adding these pieces and helping put finishing touches on my room. My cost? A batch of cookies.
