"6. Given more than you can afford to charity. I've never seen the sense in becoming a charity case."

Interesting to read your take on this list, especially since I was personally present for some of those events: A VERY cold sunrise in Eastland County. Watching you clamber up a rocky hill, uh, mountain. Seeing your first deer fall. Hearing my granddaughter’s first cry. Breathing after your parachute opened.
