At the Piggly Wiggly supermarket in Mayville, Wis., between Oshkosh and Milwaukee, Russell Kerr, 92, just wanted to get out of his parking spot.

Donald Gourlie, one of the owners of a damaged car, took it in a typical upper Midwest stride.
“What are you going to do? There isn’t much you can say. It just happens,” he said.
Life’s critical moments are birth, death, and the day you have to make your elderly parents give you the keys.
