Day 147

The ultimate sacrifice

August 20th, 2010

When I passed by the restaurant where he was sitting yesterday evening, Rich left behind a cold beer just to come walk with me for a while.


  1. Rich must have known you were coming???…else how would a hobo walking behind a cart filled with “stuff” draw his attention…must be a 6th sense…first again…boring…

  2. Christopher says:

    Guess it wasn’t a Miller Lite. ha!

    • Jeff says:

      No it was fresh Beer with a chaser of (ahhh) clamato….I would walk too.

      Nice deed, a walk with Matt priceless.

  3. John in MI says:

    Any member of the Hobo Planet would gladly ditch a beer for a walk with the master.

  4. Gigi says:

    What’s a beer in exchange for a walk with our hobo?

  5. Don in Tennessee says:

    Rich is a good guy to leave a cold beer and walk with Matt. He can always drink a cold beer. Rich probably said “Beer I have to leave you because Matt and I “May Never Meet Again”.

  6. Donna in MI says:

    Thanks Rich for leaving your cold beer behind, and taking a walk with our Matt for a while! I’m sure he appreciated your company. I’m sure the two of you had lots to talk about.

  7. Dorinda from Mentor, Oh. says:

    That was a good thing to do. Hope you guys had a nice chat and learned something new from one another I’m sure. Rich was a lucky man to have seen you and walk awhile with you. I bet you made his day and weekend too!

  8. Lisa Downing says:

    Is it me, or does this new friend bear an uncanny resemblance to the Dalai Lama? This is a good thing- the Dalai is my hero. Going incognito in America with his beer. . :)

  9. Janine says:

    Rich rocks. I bet you had an interesting conversation.

  10. Karen Too says:

    Let us all have a moment of silence for the beer that “gave its life,” so that Rich could take his walk with Matt.

  11. Candice in Alabama says:

    I bet ya’ll had a great time together. Rich has a great “smiling” face!

  12. RAYMOND in ALABAMA says:

    Has anyone notice how neat the sidewalks are in this city.

  13. Melanie in Rochester says:

    I ditch a nice glass of sav blanc in a half a beat to walk with Matt…and that’s saying A LOT!
