The Perfect Gentleman

Just to let you guys know,Mike sent Theresa (Mrs Fish) a box of chocolates to cheer her up.I picked it up from the Post Office today. I've known Mike for barely three weeks (or the rest of you lovely people),and yet I'm bowled over by his compassion that has left both Theresa and myself deeply touched.I've honestly never known a forum as friendly and kind as this one,and I've been on a few in the 14 or so years I've been on the internet.

    He's a good soul isn't he? You're  right - many very good people here. image

  • Wow! That's an amazing act of kindness, Fishy....especially when seen that in the context that it's just a forum.

    I'll say an extra prayer for him tonight.

    He is a star isn't he image  I do hope he's doing ok 

    And I hope that your wife is feeling much better now.

    I wish we could do something for Mike.  I was thinking that if I lived near him I would pop round and offer to cut the lawn or weed while he is out of action, but of course I'm miles and miles away.

    A nice thought BB............I'd think the best everyone could do for Mike is just to listen and support.......he seems pretty hardy to me and he certainly enjoys the support of most forum posters. He'll be back telling us stuff before you know it ..........I'm sureimage

    I do hope so Philippa - it's been a rubbish weather day here for gardening, but in a good moment, I saw this and, much as I'm not really a believer in celestial things, I

    hoped it was a sign to say Mike's operation had gone well.

    I confess, digging over my new allotment this pm, I would have welcomed such  a sight............but alas, just wind, wind, windimage

    Hi peeps, yes hopefully the op went well today and he'll be back posting very soon.

    Dove - many thanks and she's getting there,still in some discomfort (doctor-speak for pain) but it will take time.

    artjak - Mike pmed me after I said about Theresa having her op.He asked for my real world address so he could send Theresa some flowers.I mentioned that she couldn't have cut flowers in the house because she is asthmatic,and suggested chocolates.So there it is and send them he did bless him.

    Busy bee - I'm sure that is a sign and a beautiful picture too.
