There are two very special thanks that I would like to make:
The first goes out to Alyssa at Grand Marais Family Dentistry. During the holiday break, I was taken down with the most intense tooth pain I have ever felt. They came in on their day off, in the middle of holiday festivities, to do a root canal and alleviate my suffering.
The second goes out to Kevin at Cook County Towing. I have a 2500 diesel truck, and I have never had it in temperatures like this. Kevin saw me at a gas station with my hood up, and spent 15 minutes in the blasting cold wind helping me check everything out, and then took me back to his shop and gave me some additive to keep my fuel from gelling up.
To both of you, I will be forever grateful for your “Minnesota Nice,” and I am very happy for the new friendships!
