This is so cool! Al Soderland stopped in Watertown, SD excitedly telling me had seen me near Roundup,  MT about five years before. He told me this story, "I'm a recovering alcoholic and my heart goes out to others I encounter with the disease. I saw this lady in Roundup who was really down and out. She told me she was an alcoholic, a drug addict, and a compulsive gambler. I just felt so sorry for her. I decided to help her, I gave her forty dollars. As soon as I rode off, the committee in my head started, "you shouldn't have given money! In an area of bars and casino's of all places!" Al said this went on for about twenty minutes.  "Then, I saw that big LOVE LIFE sign!" He continued, "That sign told me to love life, to accept the decision I had made from my heart. And that it was a gift and none of my business what she did with it." Then he said, "Thank you sir."
