I think that's a great sign Frank even though I have no idea what is referring to.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

This man, as a hobby, breeds show pigs for kids to raise and show in fairs. His pig breeding company is called "Top of the Rock Show Pigs." He helps the kids choose the right pig, teaches them how to feed and mecicate them, how to maintain proper paperwork. And he does it because he loves working with the kids. Most of these kids can't afford a calf to show, let alone raise and feed one. The pigs are a lot less expensive.

He tries to break even with his pig expenses but he's not concerned if he doesn't. He lives in an economically depressed area and this is one way he can help the kids. He's just a big, quiet, unassuming man with a permanent smile on his face.

Giving to others is the recipe for a frequent smile on your face. People just love to contribute to others, have you noticed?

Remember when the world was a lot more like this fellow. Back in a time when people actually talked to one another? Kids could always find help with projects. Kid sports were for everyone's enjoyment not win or else competition. Family dinners at grandma's house. Times have sure changed and look where we are today.

For some reason, looking at that reminded me of my ex-wife. Don't know why.

Frank does it again. Great gesture.
