Default Robert, A Knight in Shining Armor

Robert delivered to me yesterday, one box of "BACK WITH A VENGEANCE", to be distributed to residents here at Clemson Downs. My daughter and I first took some to the health unit. The nurses and staff were excited. I looked at the directory to see if I personally knew any of the residents who were big Tiger fans. Then we looked for those who are capable of reading. So, we were able to get them into the hands of Tiger fans who are not physically able to attend the games.

Our next stop was the office that manages the apartment and assisted living residents. Again, a shower of thanks from the staff. Among these residents are a number of avid Tiger fans who never miss a game on the radio or TV.

We still had a few left and my daughter sent an email to the other residents who re property owners. We placed a supply of magazines on a table in our courtyard and asked those who were interested to come by and pick one up.
We have received many emails from residents expressing their thanks for Robert's generousity.

Thanks Robert, for your kindness. Your magazine is a treasure for those who are unable to attend a game in person.

Sorry Joe I'm just seeing this. I've been all over the place today.

That's awesome that everyone enjoyed them. As I told you I couldn't think of a better place to donate some of our magazines. There are some great Clemson fans like you and the others there.

Enjoy your trip and safe travels.
