i had no idea where to put this, so i went with 'social issues'.
may be a bit unusual for ats, but i hope not.
i've basically been trailer trash for a couple of weeks now. i own property, but spend most of the year traveling the southwest u.s., living in my
my friend bill hasn't been doing so well as of late, so we just parked our rv's in a rv park near the veterans and civilian hospitals just in case
there was an emergency.
when we moved in, we told the owner of our situation, just in case an ambulance was needed etc....
he noticed we only had our rv's and actually told us where the spare key to his x-tra work truck was, just in case we needed to move quick.
that was beyond anything i would expect, he never met us before.
anyhow, we were just gunna' order a pizza for thanxgiving, but he came by with his wife, 2 huge plates of food with all the fixings, including a
plate of goodies for maggie, my awesome pooch,
even a couple of cold sam adams to boot.
man was that good, and so unexpected.
every now and then i get a nice boost regarding the kindness of some humans.
the best part about it, they got me thinking about how i'll pay it forward to someone else.
not in the situation to do something like i used to, but i'll come up with something.
years ago when i had my store in silver city, n.m., a few of us would get together
and put out a thanxgiving dinner for whomever wanted it.
homeless, single parents, poor locals, sometimes we'd feed over 100 people.
we'd cook everything in the apartment behind the store.
we did this for 5 years straight, but guess what happened the 6th year?
right when we were done cooking, and laying everything out on picknick tables behind the building,
the health department came with a bunch of cops and shut us down.
they wouldn't even let us fill plates to go for all the people waiting in line.
#ers, what a waste.
just thought i'd share the experience, hope it's not to off topic for here.
