Incredible Charlie - huge props for stepping up and doing this! That man's tears of joy alone must have instantly made the effort worthwhile.

Here's wishing you and your family a wonderful Christmas.


So with a couple of coolers loaded with warm meals, we headed towards downtown on Wednesday, the day before Thanksgiving, to hand out meals.   I had never done anything like this before, and I wonít lie, I was a little nervous.  The first person we gave a meal asked if I could open the box and unwrap the plastic utensils because her hands were too cold.  Another man started crying because he could share his food his family (we gave him two more meals).  We met veterans, prostitutes, and people with obvious mental health issues; all were thankful and non-threatening.  My earlier nervousness and apprehensions disappeared and as our food supply quickly dwindled, I vowed I would do this again before Christmas.  My only regret is not making more food, but thatís okay, turkeys went on sale right after Thanksgiving!

Very nice Charlie!  Was it that cold in Jacksonville?  The homeless down there have it made compared to our northern homeless. Iíve thought about doing something similar but never did it. Good on you for thinking about and actually executing. [emoji106]

I just saw this post, Charlie, that's amazing.  Something for me to think about.

Travis, congrats on the weight loss, I am inspired for the year ahead...I've gained about 30 lbs the last two years, and would like to go the other way.

Good job all around guys!
