My unsung heros are the guys at J & J Auto. They are simply the nicest people in Westport.
They have given us years of honest kindness and helpful assistance.
They say with a smile, “don’t worry about coming in all the time so we can add air to your tires. Lots of people do!“
Once I phoned them from a college tour road trip. Our car was making noise. The local garage insisted we needed a new transmission pronto before getting on the road, or our family wouldn’t be safe.
J & J told us it sounded okay to drive home. When we got back they checked it out. Only a minor tweak was needed.
Another time my son slammed the garage door, crushing my license plate. They hammered it out, reattached it in the pouring rain. They charged nothing, because “things happen.”
Now they are keeping bees behind the garage, and jars of delicious warm honey under the desk. That’s a story in itself.
