Someone did something very nice for me yesterday.
One of those gestures that comes at exactly the right time to give a guy a lift.
There is an item, something small and inexpensive, it's identity irrellivant, which I have been on the trail of for a while.
Nothing important, just something with a small memory attached to it which I thought would be nice to share with my kids.
It was never a 'Holy Grail' type quest you understand, nothing so grand.
It was more a "I haven't seen one of those for so long, you probably can't get them anymore" type of things.
I was out for a walk yesterday when a friend of mine pulled up beside me in his car.
He rolled the window down and handed me a small package.
"Just something I thought you might like", and he drove off.
It was indeed the item from my past.
Wasn't that nice?
He had gone out of his way to search, locate and order this thing.
When I rang to thank him he got all bashful. "It's just something small".
The item was small, but not the gesture.
