Any of you folks ever do that?
I did a simple thing today, walking into the local grocery
store there was a nice old gal sitting outside selling poppy's
for a fundraiser for the local VFW as they always do. Now I have
bought enough of those to pert near block the vision in my truck.
At any rate, whist I was in the store I bought a rose with some
baby's breath and some other greenery.
When I went out the nice ol' gal said somebody is going to be lucky
and get flowers. I said yes Mam, Handed it to her and said thanks for
what you do.
She was crying when I walked away.
Best 5 bucks I have spent in a long time.

Outstanding! They say money canít buy happiness, but when I give it away, it makes me very happy.

Nice, only thing I have done lately was help a 77 year old man get his several 5 gal buckes of hydronic fluid loaded into his truck. I spoke with him at the register, and saw him attempting to load up on my way out. It's been a while since I have changed any tires, probably about a year but I have done several whe. I see folks are having trouble last two were a young girl late at night and before that an 80 year old couple on the interstate. The old couple were on thir way to a great grand kids birthday 130 mils away. Had to move a trunk full of presents to get out the spare and jack. Very nice folks. The young girl was on her way home from work and I was on my way checking beaver traps. I was glad to help her get on her way. She was in the middle of no where.

It sure feels good to take some time and help others.

Yes. This past fall right before Thanksgiving I was in a grocery store that had turkeys for sale. I picked the smallest I could find..like 9 pounds because I was having ham too.

A elderly gentleman was at the turkey bin when I made a pass looking over the turkeys.

I asked if he needed some help and he said he was looking for the smallest turkey for him and his wife.i already knew I had the smallest one.

I took the turkey I had and gave it to him. He protested but eventually I got him to take the bird. I went on my way and so did he.]

When I got in line to pay he put his items. Which were sparss. The small turkey.a can of beans a box of instant potatoes and 6 rolls plus a few other things on the belt behind me. When the lady checked me out I told her to check him.out with mine because I was paying for his groceries too.

He protested and I told him I wanted m to do it. He said he always was the one to help people and he always paid his own way.

I told him God led me to.pay for his stuff and I was going to.

He relented she checked his stuff out. I paid told him happy rhanksgiving and he was very emotional.
I told him what I did was as much for m as it was him and tha if he was eyermined to pay me back to pay me back b y helping someone else with something along the way.

I hope they had a very nice Thanksgiving dinner.


On th other ideas one day on my way to work the lady in front of me paid my bill at burger King. When I went to pay they told me she paid for me. As she left I beeped to thank her

Shows what kind of a good man you are. What a great act of kindness.


I'm just happy to be here! Today I'm as young as I'll ever be and and older than I've ever been before!

The wife called me at an odd time on a Friday 2 weeks ago , i knew something was up, i answered and asked what was up and if everything was ok. She had a member at her creidt union that needed a 5th wheel moved that day to get her daughter out of a bad domestic situation.

I went over after work and got it hooked up and out of the backyard it was parked in, as i hit the atreet the cops rolled up. Middle of rush hour on a Friday thru the middle of Reno.

When I got it parked and level at the new spot , mom asked what she owed me.
Nothing glad i could help and that her daughter was safe now.

Got several of the most heartfelt thanks over the weekend, beats cash any day.

Every December my website (Iowa Trappers Talk (ITT)) pulls a few hundred dollars from our discretionary fund and sends it to a few honorary "ITT Santas" these "Santas" take the money and do all kinds of good deeds with it, from buying groceries, goodwill, Walmart carts for people to buying blankets and food for elderly and/or homeless folks, to buying stuffed animals and RC cars for kids, supporting local animal shelters, and much more. It's extremely rewarding!

Very nice gesture there Zim.


Forget that fear of gravity-get a little savagery in your life.

We need a lot more of this in America. I have found that even the smallest thing can make someone's day.

Use your blinker, hold the door open for someone, be kind to cashiers.
