Donation Surprises Stickman

Stickman: I wrote about two weeks ago that it would be a dream for me to witness history and actually fly in one. It is here, out at Coeur d'Alene airport. I never thought much of the story I wrote, but I had a surprise visit from DFO this afternoon after he got off work. It was good to see him, as it's been awhile. Anyway, he was in a rush to meet someone and had to bring me something. It was an envelope addressed to the stickman that was brought by his office by an anonymous person who stated that he was a long time blurker on this blog and could he please deliver it. It is hard for me to write this now, because since then my eyes have been full of tears. I have just finished my eye surgery recently and both of my basically blind eyes are now 20/15. Amazing and I can't even describe what I have been feeling lately, except for today. As DFO came across the street to greet me and give me this envelope, the B-17 flew right over Tubbs Hill. To make a short story shorter, the envelope had $450 in cash in it for me to ride this glorious piece of history. I am going tomorrow. Full comment here.
