    A heart warming surprise in the mail box

    Around the first of April I found a nice engraved dog's tag while hunting a swimming area. It had a name and phone number on it. I called them to see if they would like me to send it back to them. They were very fond of "Lucky" their dog and was happy that I offered to send the tag back to them. I found this letter in my mail box today and it brought tears of joy to read it.

    That is a great story! I'm sure it did move you a bit. Losing a pet is like losing a family member to us and I know something like that would bring back a lot of fond memories.

    A jewel in your crown that is better than silver or gold.

    Nicely done.
    America was founded by tough hell-raisers. Rugged citizens who evaded taxes, spoke strongly against tyranny, grew tobacco, brewed beer, distilled spirits, and smuggled weapons. And it will be saved by those same types of citizens.

    It was just the tag that was lost. They had taken Lucky to play in the water because he loved the water so much.
