I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone here at watchfreeks.com; each member and all involved in the Secret Angel program.

There were about 25 postings of kindness and compassion we members have shown unto others. In my estimation we are all Angels and winners.

My newly adopted family has arrived; the home is a bit crammed with birds, dogs, people and furniture, but it's a loving home, the mom is a wonderful cook who had made fresh breads daily.

I was watching the NCAA National Championship Football game between Alabama and Texas, when I received a private message at this forum, asking me if I checked my USPS mailbox lately. I replied no, I will check at halftime; with 2:30 remaining in the half my curiosity got the best of me.

I opened the box much to my surprise were 2 boxes, 1 containing an Android Men's Interceptor GMT, 1 box with an Invicta Eagle Force, below is a photograph of the watches. I apologize I'm learning to be a watch photographer.

I have three (3) rules that try to guide me each day.

1. Learn something new each day; I've made myself a better person.

2. Help at least one person each day; I've made myself a better person.

3. Do unto others as you would, they should, do unto you.

The Secret Angel asked that the winner of this contest post additional acts of kindness.

This week I purchased 3 college textbooks for the upcoming semester for one of my classmates who is less fortunate than I.

I've repaired the computer network at our local senior’s center. My Town is broke; the town IT department can no longer perform services for the senior center. I was asked to check it out, replaced a piece of faulty hardware.

I've refurbished 3 discarded computers, installed operating systems and office systems to give to local school children who have none. Another organization is paying for internet services and providing printers.

I attended the Fiesta Bowl Monday, took Monday and Tuesday off.


Thank you one and all for your kindness and generosity.

Jeff

You seem like a genuinely caring, thoughtful, and compassionate individual.

It sounds like you are MORE than deserving of the Secret Angel gifts!

ENJOY them! You most certainly DESERVE them! :)

After reading your post here Jeff, I think our Angel must have some special talent to have picked you. I only hope I can be as generous with my time and resources as you have been. My hat off to you and my admiration to you Jeff.

JEFF, Thanks for getting my desire going again to help others. CARL

UPDATE

First I want to thank everyone for their kind words and encouragement.

I was informed late yesterday afternoon that my adopted family was moving. The Mom met some guy who invited Mom, kid, birds and dogs to live with him in Maryland. Moving day was today.

To answer your questions,
I did not ask where or how she met this guy.
She mentioned he's retired MSgt from AF works at Andrews AFB.
I wished her all the best, asked her to send me crabcakes from Timbuktu once settled.

In the back of my mind I hope she made an educated decision.

The U-Haul just left, my house is much more quieter now, my birds are sadden. Back to watching sports and watch shows without the nagging. Actually she was a fantastic guest, she took care of the interior housekeeping (I HATE HOUSEWORK) and was a fantastic cook, almost daily she made 3 fresh loaves of bread daily ohh the aroma and what that gal could do with an artichoke.

I hope it all works out for her.
