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

    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...
  • 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 don't know the story behind this thread, but I certainly agree with the above comments; there are really good people on this site.image

    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.

    I was feeling the same Busy Bee ..............

    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.

    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.

    Fishy, that is lovely.  Does anyone here know Mike's real world address?  (not expecting anyone to post it obviously, but wondering if anyone knows).  I'm sure if everyone on here who cares donated a couple of quid, we could buy him a flower shop!  There are that many of us.

    I know he lives in London,does that narrow it down?  image Seriously though Busy Bee,I don't but I'm sure he'd let you have it once he's back on the boards.
