Paid it Forward...

Sometime last week I was making my rounds on blog reading. On SOMEONE'S blog...(If it's You, please let me know), I read that some unknown person had paid for said Blogger's purchase and left before they were able to be thanked. Said Blogger thought this was a wonderful idea...well...Saturday, I had to go back into town to finish up on a few errands. I left the house at 6:45am. I had only had time for a quick coffee before I left the house. Now, if you know me, you'll know that ONE quick coffee just won't DO!Hahaaa....SO, I decide to pull into the Jack in the Box for a nice, hot cuppa. I was third in line when I pulled up to the drive thru. As I sat there I remembered what I had read on SOMEONE'S blog...about the Pay it Forward thing. Well, I looked in my rear view one was there. Then I said to God, "Ok Lord...Lets do it! The next person that pulls in behind me is going to be someone that really needs this so...if you would, send someone now!"
Well, Hahaaaaa....Immediately after I said it, a lone man pulls in behind me...driving an older Ford Explorer and wearing hunting garb. I'm not one to question God so I accept the challenge. Pulling up to the window, I see a sad faced, young black lady, manning the cash register. I'm thinking to myself that she may not have had any Christmas cheer yet this morning (not a happy camper) but I decide to proceed! I asked her if the gentleman behind me had placed his order yet...she said he had. I then said I wanted to pay for my order AND his. Then when he ask what was going on or why someone would DO that for him, that she needed to tell him this...
"Tell him we don't know each other...Tell him I just wanted to wish him a Merry Christmas and if he could, to just, Pay it Forward someday."
The young black lady just stared at me...then all of a sudden, she starts smiling...and tearing up! She promises to do as I asked and thanked me for being so kind...When I asked how much the total bill was, she said, $2.35...Hahaaaa....I was expecting a little bit more but...Oh well, I still feel good about doing it. I pay the lady and roar off into traffic...Lordy, that was FUN!
But you know what I think about the whole affair? I think it was the lady at the cash register that needed cheering up and not the man behind me...Maybe she'd had an awful morning already...who knows. I just know I felt a connection to her when she finally looked at me.
Who knows...Maybe she'll be the one to Pay it Forward.
Have a great Monday everyone!

Almost Done...

'Tis the be BUSY! I'm STILL not done! I've still got those little things to finish up on...making sure I've got everything ready to go in the food department...Kids and Grankids will be showing up and by dingies, they want their black olives! It's a must and not open for debate. I'm making the stuffing this year...Hubby got a-NOTHER smoker so I guess the turkey will end up being a guinea pig...cross your fingers that it turns out well.
Hope you are all having a wonderful...headache free, day. Seems the more I try to do, the less gets done. I'm in serious need of a coffee...Enjoy!

Who's Making Cookies?

This past weekend, Hubby decided to BAKE! Oh yeah he did!! He made a peanut butter cookie that was pretty tasty but the Stars of the Show were the Sugar Cookies! Sugar cookie dough, I think, is the trickiest of all doughs. If you don't get it just right, they just don't taste good. Hubby out-did himself...Got everything right on his First 'friggin try! See those sugar sparkles? I did those...I DID TOOO!Hahaaaa...It was very tedious work! They must be placed...just So! I'm so proud of myself...Hahaaaa...Happy Tuesday Guys!!

Saturday Smile!

I was at WalMart buying a bag of Purina dog chow for my dog , in the check-out line when a woman behind me asked if I had a dog. Why else would I be buying dog chow, RIGHT ??? So on impulse I told her that no, I didn't have a dog, I was starting the Purina Diet again, and that I probably shouldn't, because I ended up in the hospital last time, but that I'd lost 50 pounds before I awakened in inten.........sive care, with tubes coming out of most of my orifices and IVs in both arms. I told her that it was essentially a Perfect Diet and all you do is load your pockets with Purina Nuggets and simply eat one or two every time you feel hungry. The food is nutritionally complete so it works well and I was going to try it again. (I have to mention here that practically everyone in line was now enthralled with my story.) Horrified, she asked if I ended up in intensive care, because the dog food poisoned me. I told her no, I stepped off a curb to sniff a poodle's butt and a car hit me. I thought the guy behind her was going to have a heart attack he was laughing so hard. Better watch what you ask me and be prepared for my answer. I have all the time in the world to think of crazy things to say. Now that you've read it I have to confess, I copied it from someone else.. share and make someone else smile today :)

(This was an email I got this morning...The mental picture of someone stepping off a curb to smell a poodle's butt, made the coffee I was drinking, go up my nose! What a hoot! Now, GO forth on this nasty, rainy Texas day and make Merry, or where Ever you might be on this Saturday morning! Feel free to copy. I think I'm off to town...later gang!
