Those of us who REALLY knew Pinky, understood that he was not much for seeking an audience....unless, of course, it was as a result of a prank he could initiate or participate in.  Otherwise, he was dead serious about his relationships and his efforts to do something nice for you.  Didn’t matter what your color, your status or your situation was, if you were in need or willing and he felt he could contribute it was his DUTY to share.  (I remember him telling me about the girls that just NEEDED his attention...but, that’s another story)

This story about the peanuts is a prime example of the motivation of my little brother... who would have guessed?
