A moment of kindness as an early birthday present for myself: there is a summer program in the elementary school across the street from my house. The school is not air-conditioned, and Portland is on path to a record heat wave. I took in 8 24-packs of Otter Pops for the kids and counselors. The kids don't know yet because the popsicles went in the freezer, but the head counselor was very, very grateful. A good birthday moment.
