And I DO mean it. Here is what happened, then a pic (a poor one But you can see what I'm talking about).
Last week a Dog contacted me and said there was a letter or poster that he thought I would be interested in seeing, but that he needed to mail it to me because he couldn't scan it and upload the results. He wanted to know if my address had changed and I told him it had not.
Well today the mail lady knocked on the door and had a package for me that I needed to sign for. At first I thought it was another fire tinder kit I had ordered from DogTired. But then after a couple seconds I realized I wouldn't need to sign for that, then I remembered the PM I got from this Dog and thought OK, but then again WHY would I need to sign for a letter or a poster.
Well there WAS a letter/poster inside, but first THIS is the reason I needed to sign for it. (Sorry I lost the pic of the actual blades somehow) Here's the first one.
And here's the second one.
When I lifted the package I began to think that he included something else and when I got it open I started repeating Oh God over and over again (I'm sorry if you think that blasphemous but it's all that came to mind).
First out was the Regulator and I thought Man that's expensive, but a VERY nice gesture, then I realized there was something else in the box besides the packing Styrofoam peanuts. THEN I REALLY lost it.
Yeah I had to set everything down, I couldn't see. I was totally blindsided. And he even included the Busse Combat SSS sheet (Swine Shaving Sharpness Sheet) showing how it would cut paper.
AND there was also a personal letter, in which he was thanking me! This letter will always remain to remind me of the boundless generosity of others. I wish I could thank this man BY NAME, but until he gives his Ok I won't.
So, SIR, I THANK YOU ALL FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART. I haven't had that many things deeply touch me, but this is most definitely one of those times.
So, again, thank you for this most generous heart touching gift. Hopefully I can pass the generosity on to others in time. But neither one of these blades will be leaving here, until I can't use them any more, then I WILL gift them forward to a deserving Dog.
If It were within my power to give you an award, rest assured, I would.
