Wanna See Me Cry?

If you do, just keep it up. Keep stopping me on the street and giving me donations of warm clothing and money (yes, hard cash!) for Project Warm Hearts.

Two people approached me yesterday while I was enjoying coffee at Aluxes Coffee Shop. Both readers of this blog, of course. One gave me a bag full of nice, warm, clean fleece jackets. The other came up with her husband and pushed a wad (a wad!!) of Mexican pesos into my hand. "For the kids", she said.

I almost cried.

Gives one hope for mankind I think - there ARE some good people on this planet - and some very needy ones.

I am purchasing hats and gloves and stocking stuffers to bring down in June. How do I find you?
