...and the door was open [too hot to close it], his yellow first-responder bike parked outside, his Ninja jacked hanging onto a hook on the door frame and his helmet hanging onto a hook on the open door, while he and I were having a sort out and discussion in the back room. Tikki was with us when all of a sudden she shot into the salon and stood in the doorway with her "someone is here" bark. Not a warning bark as if she was concerned and did not like the look of the person, just a bark to let us know someone was here. Plonked out and there was a young man outside the door, his wife and baby in a stroller at the end of the path - no idea who they were but he saw the first-responder bike outside so wanted to make sure everything was OK. I am extremely pleased with Tikva for letting us know someone was here [not sure if she would have let him just walk in though] and very grateful that someone I did not know and who did not know me, bothered to come and check that everything was OK when he saw the bike, jacket and helmet. A lot of immediate neighbours and Hai at the macolet opposite know that the Yellow Ninja is a friend of mine but this young man obviously did not but had the decency to check when he saw the bike. But I wonder how many people who did not know, just walked past without bothering to see if I was OK?
