    Smile Christmas Spirit Renewed

    So the wife and I where at Walmart getting our groceries (like we do every Friday night...yeah, now I'm sure most of you would love to exchange your boring life for my glamourous one ). We kept noticing this odd guy who looked like a bum, wandering around the store ... we saw him walk up to women occasionally and say something to them, they'd shake their heads no with a puzzled look on their face and he'd walk away.

    So I figure, great, this bum is hassling people by pan-handling in the store

    We get all our groceries and we're checking out when this weirdo walks up to our cashier and interrupts us asking her if she's a single mother ... she looks a little stunned and says "Y-y-yeah?" to which he asks her how many she's got. She says "F-f-four?" so he reaches into his inside jacket pocket (and I am instantly thrown into Condition Red and start to reach for my piece) and he pulls out 4 little envelopes, hands them to her, says Merry Christmas and walks off.

    Well I back down to Condition Orange then ease back into a nice Condition Yellow and my wife says to the clerk; "You realize you're going to have to open one of those envelopes ... I'll not get any sleep tonight if I don't know what that guy gave you."

    The clerk is still a little stunned by the whole thing so she opens one of the envelopes and its one of those envelopes you give money in that has the little hole that just shows the president on the bill's face and its US Grant!.

    Both the clerk and I said "aww" ... you know that kind of aww that you say when you just realize you've been thinking real evil thoughts about someone who turned out to be nice.


    Anyway, its good to see the Christmas Spirit alive and well out there ... even if we don't always recognize "Santa's Helpers" right away.

    Zund - all I can say is - ''refreshing'' - and yeah - as we all know in truth, good does exist.

    It is just that small percent of evil we are so concerned about and watchful for.

    That is pleasing, very pleasing.

    Have a good one dude.

    that is a good example of why we should never have preconcieved ideas as to what a persons motives are by how they look.

    In Seattle there is a millioneer that walks the street in rags, never begs, helps others when he can. He looks like just another street bum and is ignored by most butr has helped many in dire need.
