See, we were friends since we were little guys. Went to school together, and if I hadn't quit school at 15 and gone off to seek my fortune I expect we would have never lost touch. But I did, and by the time I came back all of my childhood friends had grown up and started familys of their own.

So, fast forward twenty some odd years, here he comes, back livin in my hometown and lookin to join the fire company to help out in any way he can. So I go up to him all these years later and say "Hi Mike, do you remember me?"

"Course I do" he says. And we pick up right away, catchin up on old times and friends.

So last week we're shootin the breeze and he says he's takin the family to Charleston for a week, and do I know what he should bring to fish with and what is the target. I say "Hey you're a member of StripersOnline. What better place to pose such a question."

Couple of days later, he calls me and asks if I would like to dog sit for him.

See, he's already got a sitter set up, but he was thinkin about how sad I was after my buddy passed away this year. And readin my responses to the other guys that have lost fishin partners, that I might like to do this. He's got a yellow Lab named Maggie that I just fell in love with right away, and he saw that. Circumstances being, I hadda pass.

But I just wanted to let you guys know what kinda caring person he is. To offer that to me. I really missed his company and friendship over the past years. But, I'll not make that mistake agian. Hold yer friends close. They might just love you more than you think.

Just thought ya'll might like an uplifting story smile.gif
