Just when I start to feel like there are fewer and fewer kindnesses in the world, I encounter a truly nice person. Back in August of last year, I mailed an autograph request to a certain member of the Baltimore Ravens. He was my mother-in-law's favorite player, and I thought an autographed photo would make a nice Christmas gift.
Christmas came and went; my mailbox remained photo-free. Obviously this Raven is not the nice person in question.
Sometime in January, a Facebook friend who is a local sports authority mentioned having autographed photos of this particular Raven to give away. I took the opportunity to complain about my situation. Another friend of his, non-mutual, commented that he had several autographs of said player and would be happy to give one to me for my MIL. Wow! Was I ever pleasantly surprised! I happily accepted his offer and picked up the photo at his family business - Pastore's. While there, we also picked up some dinner.
I'm kind of embarrassed to admit that I had no idea that Pastore's was even there. And now I'm glad I do. In addition to sandwiches, the delly also sells cookies, dried pasta, canned Italian tomatoes, and frozen pasta goodies from Velleggia's. We picked up bags of cheese and meat ravioli for a future dinner, and I'm sure we'll be back to replenish the supply. And to try one of their meatball Gonzos....
