A Super Kind Gesture
#1
Here I was today trying to move around with a stiff back still on pain relievers. Been like this for a few days now. So this morning instead of my regular routine of getting up at 6 and going to the gym; I got out of bed at 8:30.
While sitting at the computer a FedEx truck pulls up and drops off a rather large box. I started cursing under my breath at Mrs. Mum thinking she bought some useless crap again.
Here's the box:

Took a look at the label and it was address to me from MO. At first I thought of Medic as he is the only person I know from that state.
So I carefully open it up:

My first reaction was it must be some cruel joke from Tank or Dooley like a head of a deer or some animal they sacrificed during their herf in ND.
I mean look at it, doesn't it look like some sort of head?

To my surprise I found this canister:

I still didn't know who it was from as being on meds I didn't turn the jar around and couldn't find a note.

However, this was inside the canister:

Angelenos are made for the Promethius Company by the Arthuro Fuente Co., created by Keith Park in honor of where in lives in Los Angeles.
24 stogies of 5.250 by 50 Robustos with a Dominican Republic filler and binder.

So I finally turn the jar around and there's this note:

Talk about brining a tear or two to one's eyes. What a beautiful gesture and words can't describe how I feel.
Whenever I lite up these stogies, I'll be thinking about the great pepper king: Uncle Angelo 4/4/1923 - 9/11/2012

And of course I'll also be thanking this man:

Thank you Terry (Tafdom), totally unnecessary but very much appreciated.
