This is truly amazing, I started this thinking I was going to sell my collection and now by your generosity I get to keep enjoying this wonderful hobby. What an awesome group of BOTL there are here on Puff. I hope I can be as generous some day down the road. As a small token of appreciation I want to send a batch of cigars for the troops. Once again, thank you so much.
Actually, I think that about covers it, Dave. One of the great things about this is that a lot - if not all - of us are paying forward the kindness we've received from others on this forum. Here's some good news:
1) Looks like Kyle gets more money this way than if he sold his stuff.
2) He gets to keep the amazing humidor he loves, and the cigars he loves, which will contribute to his mental and emotional well-being.
3) We all get to see that when we pull together, we can do oh-so-much-more than any of us might have thought possible. (Yep, this is where we all sing Kumbaya )
A little sappy, but it's true, and too often we let the sappiness override the truth, 'cause who wants to feel sappy? Well, it's OK to enjoy this moment; to feel good for doing good; to have fun watching Kyle and everyone else having fun. To know that while we can't do much about hard times worldwide, or even nationwide, or maybe even on our own street, we can at least lighten the load a little bit for a friend.
Sorry - I'm going to quote a forbidden book:
"And just how would you define 'neighbor'?"
"The one who treated him kindly."
Neighbors aren't the folks who live next door - they're the folks we're neighborly to.
And now, one more round of Kumbaya, just to seal the deal ...
Mike, i dont know where on gods green earth you come up with some of the stuff you say here, but by golly, I like it !!!! Your the man !
Okay I think we can safely say we got this job done! Thanks everyone and we all understand we can't make a habit out of this it's tough enough keeping the troops supplied. I just think it never hurts to help once in awhile. so lets not see a bunch of these pop up please. But Thank You all so much for helping Kyle!!
Kyle how about a update on the total we know it must have been quite a lot more than expected and hope you use it wisely brother! Maybe you can post a total with a picture of your ED humidor you get to keep for us!
Thanks Again Puff Mission all Done here!!
