Texas & Nebraska For Life — About 15 years ago, my husband and I were walking to the corner store. At the corner before we got there, there was a man sitting on the curb with luggage. We stopped and talked and found out that he was from Nebraska. We then asked him if he was hungry or needed anything. He said yes. We went to the store, got our things and a couple things for him too. We went back and gave him the items. We then gave him several dollars to hold him over to which he replied “honestly, I’ll just buy a beer.” We laughed and invited him over for food and beer down the street. He showed up, hung out all night and became one of our best friends still to this day. Beer makes friends 😁
