Kindness

This is an American story but it could happen anywhere couldn't it? Or am I being fanciful?

Where have you been hiding out?

I even had a photo shoot especially for you and a B & W image on my last post.

It had a fishy theme.

Danish Pastry (Mrs) said...

I see that Panda got in before me so, in case anybody is confused y message was not for him.

It was for the man with the fishnets.

Danish Pastry (Mrs) said...

It is a fish under your arm Jim, isn't it?

How sad Jim and such a young lass. I know people who have struggled with depression all their lives and how much of a 'normal' life they've lost. Dreadful affliction it is.

Funnily enough Bug, that music sprung to mind when I first watched it.

Maybe you're being fanciful - but I hope not!

A wonderful story of seemingly spontaneous generosity.

Instead what we have in reality is a government that knows best, a government that takes and redistributes according to its own twisted agenda.

How splendid it would be if this example was the norm.

ps, I didn't realise the Amish used chain saws!

I sensed it was a genuine story JTP. That's the reason I published it.

subrosa said...

I suppose the Amish have to keep up with some modern tools WW. The story said they were paid something for their help so they could well do work like this for others.

Many years ago I read a book about them and there have been a couple of films. Their history, as you know, is fascinating, although I would certainly find their way of life suffocating.

Hi SR
Nice to see that things like this do happen occationally.
Restores some faith in the world.

It does Apogee. Sadly it doesn't happen enough these days. Trust and compassion have been diluted.

Isn't it wonderful that there are still people in this selfish world of ours that would help their neighbours. It brings back the faith in human kindness.

And all initiated by train spotters too Ged.
