I had the honor of meeting World War II Air Force First Lieutenant Richard Thackston as I rode through Collier County. What a wonderful conversation we had. He talked of his memories of World War II and how he flew missions with Jimmy Stewart and Clark Gable. This very proud American was so excited to see the Kindness Bicycle with its patriotic signs affixed.

Phlash Phelps has a radio show on XM Satellite Radio called 60s on 6. Every week he features a state and talks about some of the cities and fun-facts of that state. He now includes kindness recordings that I send into him which mention acts of kindness that I have witnessed as I travel across the country. His show is on weekday mornings from 6 AM till 1 PM on station 6.
Thank you Phlash from the bottom of my heart.
A huge tip of the hat to McQuaid & Company and Lois Bolin for inviting me to take part in the Naples Stone Crab Festival this weekend. Dozens of families with children who know Bogart and the Kindness Bus stopped by to talk with me and visit with Bogart. Many of them went home with a signed, personalized book of Bogart’s adventures. Thank you to all the old friends and new friends we met this past.
The Flotilla 9-3 in Naples, Florida patrols some of the most beautiful waters in the United States. This Coast Guard Auxiliary is all about boat and boating safety in southwest Florida. These volunteers are the civilian arm of the Coast Guard and are all about service to community.
Commander Barry Sullivan was more than happy to post one of my flyers for the upcoming ride to help spread the word.
What a great morning it was in Naples, Florida. A 5K walk to raise funds for the research of a cure for cancer was attended by hundreds of participants. Tens of thousands of dollars was raised. I talked with dozens of groups on this morning after the walk had ended. This was such a big act of kindness for each and every one of the participants and volunteers.
