I made my mother a couple of gift jars to give to her the next time we are together. I could not afford a big expensive gift. I hope she likes as it was done with love.

today, we ate breakfast at the church [a fund raiser].
I am a retired nurse. I was having a conversation with a Physical Therapist. We got a question from an older couple about his frequent falls.
My good deed - I was the guinea pig on the floor who demonstrated an easier way to get up while the therapist assited. Our best advice was call the fire department for help.

I'm new here, but I saved a baby turtle last week. I found it in the swimming pool of a friends where I was house sitting. I called a pet store to find out what to do, because I couldn't leave right at that moment to find a pond. He told me and when I could, I found a nearby creek which is probably where he came from and let him go. By the way I have to give kudos to the guy, Chris, that I talked to at the pet store. Instead of trying to tell me to come in and buy a bunch of equipment and supplies to take care of the turtle, he told me it would be best to let it go because they are hard to take care of and keep alive. I was going to do that anyway, but I thought it was nice he wanted what was best for the turtle and not the store or his sales.

Went the extra mile several times, to contact a divorced mom of 3 who's in school and moving away from a bad landlord, to help her with the move. Went over to the move-out location tonight, looked at what needed to be done. Read her lease and looked up Landlord/Tenant law for this new state I'm in. Emailed her the appropriate sections with font changed to red that apply to her situation. Going back tomorrow to clean inside and rake outside. Have to find my digital camera so I can help her with evidence for court. It's never easy with bad landlords.

Glad I found this post. I spent several hours this evening listening & talking to my stepson. He is 30 years old, is just a real sweetheart, and is having some serious problems with a young woman he once dated. I don't want to go into a long story here, but I know he needed a sounding board and I was actually quite happy that he feels so comfortable with me and sees me as someone who can make him feel better. Anyway, that's my good deed for the day.

I was real nice to a large racoon on my way home tonight...I live in Chicago so this isn't an everyday occurence plus it kind of freaked me out at first because it was late in the evening so I saw this thing standing on the sidewalk about 15 feet away (3 car lenghts) I am a pretty big guy so I guess he was stopped too wondering what to do? So I just said some words (I can't remember exactly but something like; "hey guy how are you doing?" Lol) and I went past and prepared for a hungry or friendly or what ever type racoon but he was out of the way but I looked back and saw him looking at me and I just went on...I think these animals eat out of the garbage cans and probably some people feed them but I won't be that close just a nice distance.
