a credit to all humankind

This letter was sent to the Lions Bay School Principal's office after
the school had sponsored a luncheon for seniors. An elderly lady
received a new radio at the lunch as a door prize and was writing to
say thank you.

This story is a credit to all humankind. Forward to anyone you know
who might need a lift today

Dear Lions Bay School ,

God bless you for the beautiful radio I won at your recent Senior
Citizens luncheon I am 84 years old and live at the West Vancouver
Home for the Aged. All of my family has passed away. I am all alone
and I want to thank you for the kindness shown to a forgotten old
lady. My roommate is 95 and has always had her own radio; but before I
received one, she would never let me listen to hers, even when she was

The other day her radio fell off the nightstand and broke into a lot
of pieces. It was awful and she was in tears. She asked if she could
listen to mine, and I told her to fuck off.

Thank you for that opportunity.

That is SO funny, and from the old people I know, that sounds just like them.

I know. my grandmother was holy F'in hell.
I love old people they are like small children, you know when they haven't yet acquired all of the shit of the world? and still say the first thing that comes up, and not mean it with the hate and hell that adults do?
older people are like that they just are to old to care about the stupid shit, and say what ever they like.
I REALLY miss my grandmother she was a hoot!
