No, that's not a song title (though it oughtta be, hunh?) -- just a brief reminder that people can be damned generous, in ways large and small, with little or no thought of recompense. And it's sorta touching, is all.
Thanks to the efforts of friend and stranger alike, my pal redjenn93's Please-Save-The-Lives-Of-My-Dogs fundraiser not only met, but exceeded, its required (and rather steep) goal. I'm sure she'll be singling folks out, but I'd just like to mention two from my own lj Friends list: the_angelus and entropy156 (and if I've missed anyone else from said list, my apologies!). I'm watching all this from a distance, and know that two such macho guys don't want me getting all mushy here...but it's pretty effin cool, is all.
Among other things, Angelus writes one hell of a fundraiser post (wrote several, in fact) -- doubtless because it so obviously comes from the heart. And I hope Entropy will forgive me for thanking him here, as well, for an unlooked-for kindness done for yours truly. I owe you one, man -- and Cath & I send our thanks and admiration. :)
Okay, okay! Enough sentiment, old fogey! Back to work! ;)
(But thanks again, everyone.)
