He may just need his friend more than he needs the help? ":O}

Nah, all the money gets thrown into an account for thier "dog". He keeps asking where the money has come from, and she tells him she saves it. I'm sure he knows, because every time he gives me money, i give it right back. He's one of those guys how like to pay for everything...even if he REALLY doesn't have to.

Fortunately for him, we are planning on using the cash for a new pc for him....few more months, and he'll have enough.

LoL Dave's Savings and Loan, i guess!

CA, I really must apologize! I mis-interpreted "I give it to her when he's not around"... it's the sad state of the world we live in...":O}

I have come to hold Cadaveca in high regard, that he might be abusing a friendship was, for me, a cause for sorrow. That I was mistaken in this, is a cause for joy!
