MICHAEL'S, and bought a gift or two to give to folks this holiday season. I love that place. The merchandise and sales are awesome!! Anyway, I also went to VON's grocery store to buy a bottle of booze to take to a dinner gathering I'm attending tonight. I parked my car at a Bank Of America because I had to make a deposit first. I exchanged pleasantries with the security guard who was standing outside the bank, then I went into Von's. While picking up a bottle of vodka for tonight, I decided to pick up two, along with a festive, gift bag. When I walked back to my car, I stopped and visited with the security guard and proceeded to give him the other bottle of vodka, already stuffed into the gift bag, mind you! He was shocked, of course. I shook his hand, gave him a hug and told him that the only thing I wanted in return was for him to extend some kindness to someone he had never met, too. Even if he doesn't drink, I hope & pray he'll always remember my gesture. And, heck, it's not like I gave him just any ol' bottle of vodka. The sucka got STOLI!!!! Haa! Merry Christmas Eve to one and all!!!
