We got a little lost on our way back from Palm Springs to LA and ended up meeting Tony who had pulled his car over to ask if he could take a family photo for us. We said yes and ended up spending nearly two hours with him at his horse Amanda’s stable. We got to know Tony a little bit – he’s a tree trimmer by profession, rides horses part-time, doesn’t use the internet, and is one of the friendliest people we’ve ever met. Our kids took turns riding Amanda bareback and played with the stable dogs. It’s amazing how far a simple hello can go.
