57. Ron – this song’s for you

My mom called me today to tell me that her next door neighbor, Ron, saved my dad’s life this afternoon. Dad choked on a McDonald’s cheeseburger and Ron performed the Heimlich Maneuver on him.

I’ve been trying to think of a way to thank him. How do you thank someone who saved the life of someone you love? I wanted to dedicate today’s song to Ron.

Listen to Norwegian Wood. It’s Ron’s favorite.

He also likes Springsteen’s Born to Run. So, Ron – you get two songs.

  1. Wow!I bet you will never hear either one of these songs again without thinking of Ron. Didn’t you 365 him? I remember reading about him.

  2. Dad’s fine now, Lisa. Ron texted me that Dad didn’t remember anything Saturday evening, but did on Sunday and thanked Ron. Yes, I did 365 him – he’s my text-message buddy. Didn’t link to it because he’d be embarrassed and I told about this entry, so I knew he’d stop by for a look.

  3. Wow, I’m so glad this story had a happy ending. Ron probably deserves a whole pile of songs. When I hear stories like this I really think I need to take a CPR course.
