    Went hunting this past weekend and managed to shoot one....
    Went back to the camp and a few other campers were there...
    But one older guy i noticed that had not killed this year..I like him ok since he's an ex-vietman era marine and a nice guy...
    Seems Leo has been having a few health issue's this year and had a back operation in he had missed most of the deer season...
    So i ease up to him and ask him...How about this deer ?
    Have you killed this year?
    Leo, No neg,my freezer is empty..
    Me, want this freezer is full...
    Leo,You could buy a new freezer.?
    Me, I could but i want you to have this one..
    Leo, You Serious !
    Me,Yeah man..I'll help you clean it...
    I believe i've made a friend...That is all..Gator...

    You know of course, whether or not you had one before, now you have an Angel looking out for you and yours. It's part of the price you pay for doing good deeds and sharing with others.
    Please continue the good work. ... [respect]seesaw[applaud][applaud][applaud][flag]

    You are quite welcome. Truth is, no thanks are necessary for what I said, I just call them like I see them.

    Random acts of kindness.......

    Whether anyone else acknowledges it or not...doing a random act of kindness is its own reward. Just knowing that one has helped a fellow human being in need without first thinking how it could be turned to one's benefit can be very satisfying. It just feels right to do the right thing, and it feels wrong not to do the right thing. I would much prefer feeling right about myself, and my place in the world by doing what is right, regardless of whether or not anyone else knows what I did.

    I agree completely. Problem is I think no less than 6 in 10 people, maybe more, could read what you wrote above, and they think, what the hell is he talking about. Right and wrong on many levels is totally foriegn to them. To us in the minority it just simply is.[stirpot]

    I see that quite a few of us have learned that "It is more blessed to give than to receive"!
