Random act of BUSTED!

This morning C-man (one of my boys) and I had a plan.  Our neighbor, James, has been out of town for a couple of weeks on his job.  He works for the Forestry Service and has been rescuing birds in the Gulf of Mexico... but that's not what this is about.  My son and I thought it would be a great idea to do a random act of kindness and mow our neighbor's yard on this Saturday morning, as he is supposed to be home Monday.  I know I would be super-happy to come home after a trip away and find my jungle of a yard freshly mowed.

So about 20 minutes into our anonymous good deed, our neighbor's garage door open and he emerges from within his house.  He had a really confused look on his face... like you do.  After my explanation of attempting to just be a good neighbor, and his explanation that he got sent home early due to the approaching Tropical Storm Bonnie (is it weird that I REALLY miss tropical storms?), my neighbor said, "Well, thanks for the thought!" To which C-man and I replied, "Well, since we're here, why don't we finish what we started?"

Always finish what you start, my friends.

Who can you do a random act of kindness for today?
