It’s not Christmas yet but I got a real cool gift today from my blogging buddy, Kanani Fong. It seems that she feels I went out of my way to helped her husband, David, get from one Army base to another.
Several people commented on the post I put up about the trip. But folks, I did nothing out of the ordinary. Well, in this day and time helping someone out may seem strange and above board. But that is not how I was raised. You just help out when you can and expect nothing in return. It’s a part of the Southern Hospitality you hear about.
Anyway, Kanani was appreciative enough to send me this gold coin.(I have to apologize about the quality of the pictures. My camera will not take National Geographic type photos, so dig out your magnifying glasses to view them clearly.)

On the other side on the top, “IN APPRECATION OF EXCELLANCE” and in the middle,
This is a great gift for doing something as simple as helping a veteran in his efforts. I don’t deserve if, but I WILL cherish it.
I might have it bronzed!
Thank You, Kanani.
