Just a couple of days ago, My wife and I were remembering the kindness of Earl Mustard. We moved to Grand Coulee in 1980 with our 4 month old daughter. Shortly there after we purchased a used VW Bug. One time my wife was driving the bug over to Western Washington to visit her Family when just outside of Clea Ellum the car broke down. She was stranded on the freeway with our young daughter. She was rescued by a nice elderly couple but the car was dead on the side of the road. When Earl heard about our problem, he grabbed his “mobile” took kit came by my house and picked me up and we drove to our bug. He found the problem made the repairs and sent me on my way to get my wife and baby daughter. I had to force him to let me pay him and then it was hardly enough to cover his gas expense. We will always be grateful for the kindest and caring attitude of the Great Earl Mustard.
