Tears in my eyes...good man! Many another would've taken advantage...as many did try to with my old mother. Goodstuff! (this is sincere...it could sound insincere, but it isn't).

that just shows, doesnt it, that if your a nice person and prepared to put a bit of effort in and help people, that you get much more out of it. And what a nice old dear as well.

Nice one mate

Good luck mate.
You should have seen some of the people who tried to take advantage of my Auntie when she was living alone (fortunately she gave them a flea in their ear and called the police.)

Last week i recieved a newsletter from my local allotment society general chit chat, when the rent is due etc plus they need some volunteers to help put up the raised beds on the plots we have put aside for disabled allotmenteers, so anyway on sunday i as popping a cheque and a note to say i was available on any sunday they want into the letterbox when two of the commitee members turned so i handed the envelope to them, 5 minutes one of them runs down to my allotment and asks if i would like a greenhouse as one has been left on a plot which has been let go. 1 minute later i was the proud owner of a 6x8 greenhouse :D

I wasn't the only person on the site that morning there was at least a dozen of us, but i think because i willing to work any sunday swung it in my favour, so my advice is do a good deed, because every good deed will be rewarded :D
