I was volunteering at the Fredericton Soup Kitchen on Saturday. Eugene < Cook > asked me if I would go outside with him?
In the past, people would drop some food over and we would bring it in the back room.
This time around was a little different.
This young girl gave us some Christmas gifts. It was to be given to the poor on Christmas Day.
At first, I took the handful of gifts inside the Kitchen but I was told to come back because there were more presents.
MORE PRESENTS??? THERE SURE WAS!!!
Her name is Natalie and she works for the Canadian National Defence.
She received $300.00 as a Christmas bonus so she decided she would gave her bonus to the poor souls as presents.
I might add there were three garbage bags full of gifts. I made 5 trips inside with another guy.
She took the time buying and wrapping all these gifts. < I sure wouldn't! >Wrapping isn't my cup of tea.
The best part is the individual is not looking for credit from anyone.
She arrive at the Soup Kitchen, she gave the gifts away and disappeared in the darkness of the night.
Now? This is different because a blogger was in the area.
At first, she wasn’t interested having her picture taken but being Charles? I know a good story when I see one.
It’s nice to see there are very good hearted people around these days.
Question? How many people does the same good hearted gesture that we never heard of?
Joyeux Noel Natalie
P.S. For you nosy readers? No...I didn’t take a gift!!!!...lol

This picture was taken by Jennifer Watson who used to work for the Irving's paper.
Can you imagine if I would had a camera during my six months protest?
Yes, how time flies?
Three years ago, I left the Capital and received a standing ovation in the Legislature after presenting a petition with 10,000 signatures asking the Lord Government to do a study on Ritalin. But nothing happen.
Both political Parties < Including Elizabeth Weir > stood up to congratulate moi. I believe they all stood up together because they were very happy to see me go back to Saint John!!...lol....
Eleven days later, I walked through the doors of the Legislature and they said - HE’S BACK!!!! ..lol...
One thing is certain? If they had known that I would love the City of Fredericton so much that I decide to move here? They would have made certain that myself and the tent would have been gone in a matter of minutes and not six months!!!...lol
I wrote a little transcript of my experience. More than 100,000 words but never found a publisher.
From Protester to blogger in three years. My God? Lots have happened during the last few years.
I am indeed the last of the true protester.
No one is allowed to pitch a tent in front of the Legislature.You can say that I am indeed part of history!!!
The only sad part about the protest was that Dan Bussieres stole Dorothy Dawson tent on August 19th and damage my part time home.
Dorothy never got her tent back.
NB Liquor no longer used that department for communication.
I wonder who’s going to be their new spokesperson???
It's call coalfish. There's lots of work running a website for a living.

COME, LET US BOW DOWN IN WORSHIP, LET US
KNEEL BEFORE THE LORD OUR MAKER; FOR HE IS
OUR GOD AND WE ARE THE PEOPLE OF HIS
PASTURE, THE FLOCK UNDER HIS CARE.
( PSALM 95:6-7 *NIV )
As a Child of God we are lead by our Sheperd and Savior,
Jesus Christ! He is always with us, to provide help, guidance
and reward us with Eternal Life as well! After all Jesus' said:
"I AM THE GATE FOR THE SHEEP. WHOEVER ENTERS
THROUGH ME WILL BE SAVED. HE WILL COME AND GO
OUT, AND FIND PASTURE." ( JOHN 10:7, 9 )
King David wrote; THE LORD IS MY SHEPERD, I SHALL
NOT WANT. HE MAKES ME LIE DOWN IN GREEN
PASTURES, HE LEADS ME BESIDE QUIET WATERS.
( PSALM 23:1-2 ) Now Charles, the same still applies
to you and me today!
So why not attend your Church and Worship Him today,
where you may; PRAISE GOD IN HIS SANCTUARY; PRAISE
HIM WITH THE SOUND OF THE TRUMPET; PRAISE HIM
WITH THE LUTE AND HARP! PRAISE HIM WITH THE
TIMBREL AND DANCE; PRAISE HIM WITH STRINGED
INSTRUMENTS AND FLUTES! PRAISE HIM WITH
CLASHING CYMBALS! LET EVERYTHING THAT HAS
BREATH PRAISE THE LORD. (PSALM 150:1,3-6 )
Therefore; COME LET US SING TO THE LORD! LET
US SHOUT JOYFULLY TO THE ROCK OF OUR
SALVATION. ( PSALM 95:1 ) at your Church today!
