    Rave of the Day

    For honest people, especially the young man who found my dad's wallet at a gas station several miles from his home, and drove to my Dad's house to get it safely to him. Then wouldn't allow Dad to give him a reward. And like lots of codgers, Dad's 90, he carries way too much cash, so it would have been easy for the finder to walk away with $300-400, and no one the wiser.

    There are indeed still plenty of good people out there. Another rave along the same lines:

    Last Wednesday, I was in the supermarket and couldn't find my wallet in my handbag (instant heart attack). Raced back to the car, desperately hoping it had fallen out of my bag there. As I was hunting around in the front seat, quietly swearing to myself, a lady came up and asked if I had lost something. She'd found it in the carpark and handed it straight in to the shopping centre management. Two minutes later, it was safely back with me.

    I wish I'd had the presence of mind to thank her more substantially than I did in my panicked state. Bless that woman, and all those like her.

    That is great. The majority of people are still good, honest folks.

    A coworker found a wallet last year. I searched the internet to find the guy who lost it, who was randomly in town because his father passed, and we got it back to him.

    Excellent! My dad would have been unhappy if he lost the money, but the big deal was his drivers/hunting/fishing licenses, and all that stuff we carry in our wallets.

    As his doc says, Dad is an old man in a young man's body. He got two deer in the fall which went into his freezer; he is very primal in his way of living, which no doubt accounts for how sharp he still is.

    Was it on the beach, in the sand, all that time? That is really something.
