    for the past week i have been really busy helping Amber, my 2 sons mother, with her terrible situation. her husband Joe "Joe Bob" Beier's life was takes at the bar at 21st and california. there have been some really hectic days since then. on top of that i lost my job just the day before and have been walkin to her house to help. she has been left w/ 4 children and no source of income because he provided for the house with the car lot that got taken from her by dirty dealin people. i do all i can & so does Chris (her middle boy's dad). just a bad situation all the way around.
    anyway....
    Tom has been tryin to get ahold of me all this time but we could never find a time to meet up. we met up today so he could give me a couple poles to replace the poles that got stolen recently 1 being my son Leeland's.
    we (Lucky, Pete & I) get to Tom's house and had a great BS session bout fishin no less. after about 30 min or so he goes to give me the "couple poles" and picks up this bundle of rods & reels. i tried to tell him i cant take all them and he told me i could in a way that i knew i wasnt gonna be able to argue with him on it. he is a good size ol boy :crazy:. after we get them poles in the truck he then starts pickin up other items that he says im gonna take too.
    i'll tell you what.... i have not been treated like that in quite some time. he went above and beyond on "bein nice".
    Tom, i cant explain how much i appreciate what you gave to me today. i know Leeland will be elated to know he has more than 1 fishin pole now. you have brightened up a dark time for us. again, the most sincere THANK YOU possible goes out to you.

    Yeah, Tom is a great guy. I believe that he would do sometihng like that. Not too many left in the world like that. Its nice to know you are back in gear, now you gotta go get some fish and set up your gourmet outdoors kitchen and cook Tom up a batch of some cats.:wink: Sorry to hear about the tough times JJ. That was a crazy week for you. Things will get better. Now you can go to the river and forget about all that crap for awhile and catch some fish. Tom, you are one hell of a guy. That was above and beyond.

    J.J., there's a post on another thread, can't remember where I put it last night. I have a Shakespear spinning reel for Leland to replace the one he lost. Sorry I didn't have a pole to go with it, maybe I will by the next time I see you.
    Sorry to hear about all the problems, wish you well and hope things work out for you.

    Bad things happen to good people. The good thing is that the BOC has some fine folks who are willing to extend a friendly hand during these times. I'm sorry for the personal problems your family are faced with but i'm glad you have friends like Tom.

    thank y'all for the kind words.

    to make things worse for Amber......

    the day me & Lucky left for the delaware she called to tell me "they" cut the lock on the back gate and stole 3 cars. also, broke into the shop and took all the tool boxes she just got back from the car lot, all the kids mini bikes and other misc. stuff. they probably would of took her boat if i didnt take the lock off my trailer to put on the boat trailer. she called the cops but i think we all know what thats worth.
