    I think I have something in my eye

    I got a PM from a member here who had heard (via PM) that my brother is sick in hospital. I was frankly surprised that people were talking about it - I did mention it in a lounge chat thread but still. They asked my postal address, and no questions. I have just received a package

    What a thoughtful gift. My brother loves the great outdoors - goes camping, hiking etc regularly, and doesn't have a watch at all(!), despite my efforts. Ironically they think the tropical disease(s) he is fighting were picked up whilst he was camping a few weeks ago This setback won't put him off though - he'll be back out there with his new toy! As soon as he gets out of surgery...And a very generous Amazon voucher - I'll suggest he uses it to buy some more outdoors gear which he loves so much. I'll post a pic of him wearing it when he gets it.

    What can I say IWL - I really am very blessed to have such an amazing community to call friends.

    Thank you very much.

    A genuine pat on the back to whoever it was (who'll most likely want to remain publically nameless and rightly so)

    I know who PM'd me and they shall remain anonymous, but I believe it was a group effort. It was signed IWL so I think you all - you all make this community the friendly place that it is which facilitates such kind gestures.
