In the grocery store both me and Dale Spence spotted this woman with the coolest baseball hat that said “The Bicycle Thief.” I remember seeing the hat and before my mind could process “that is the coolest hat” Dale was asking her if he could show that hat to me. And before Dale could finish the sentence that I was biking across Canada she handed the hat to me asking me if I wanted it! Her name was Marian Girroir of Antigonish and her generosity blew me away.
Initially when I tried to convince her to take a photo she was too self conscious of her hair!! What woman gives the hat off her head when she is self conscious of her hair? I won’t soon forget this gift.
I was able to convince her to take a photo with me if we put the hat back on her head.
