There is a family in Ilwaco who has extra reason to be thankful this Thanksgiving, and they may not even know about it.

About Sept. 21 we were driving through Ilwaco on vacation headed for Long Beach, when suddenly my husband slammed on the brakes. He was just inches from hitting a boy on a bicycle who came out of nowhere. As it was, the young man nearly hit the side of our fender. He apologized, by the way.

I shudder when I think how close we came. I wonder if a guardian angel wasn't working overtime.

Whoever you are, enjoy your son and Happy Thanksgiving. We were driving a red Ford Focus, a rental car with Washington plates.
