Gerry you put one heck of a smile on my face as I reread your Secret Santa post:) Words can't describe how much it meant to me to do that for you! The crew at that store were great at helping pull it off. They were surprised that somebody would do that for somebody too.
I tried so damnhard toto fess up but your lie was a good one and well with that FBI stuff "behind" things I had to fess up....LOL. That was a damn great lie!
I'm glad you were able to get many years of use out of it and once you give that to your buddy and see the look on his face you will have a good idea of what I felt when you went and picked it up:) Thanks for paying it forward and helping him out! You are a good man!
I'm still kicking the best I can. Haven't walked in about 15 months due to a fall and broken leg just above the knee cap area. Several issues and surgeries from plate and pins. Hope to try standing in about a month:) Been down way too long! Still trying to help others as I can. This week is trying to help a mom with 4 kids ages 1-9 that left an abusive alcoholic husband and is living in a local motel. I have the boss here taking them shopping for clothes, toys and personal items next week using some funds I had set aside. They need it more than I do. It's a great feeling helping somebody. Sometimes it doesn't take much to put a smile on someones face or let them know that they aren't alone in the world....
Thanks again for giving me a smile this morning! Glad you are passing the gift on! Hope you and all of yours have a happy and safe holiday season Gerry!
