1. Thanks, that was beautiful

After a few financially-disastrous years, I am beginning to see a lighter path.

I live in a small town that might as well have a line drawn down the middle of it. Three times, over the holidays, I hung around the checkstands of a mercado on the "wrong side of town" and picked up the tab on a few cart-fulls of groceries. It was the children's faces that pulled the trigger.

I would like to thank you for posting this, underpants.

2. Wonderful!

I LOVED that piece; every item was a nugget of warmth and joy. Thank you!


The soccer one reminded me of a similar story that involved a school basketball team.
