There are some really nice people in this world. When I was at Walmart, (everyone goes to walmart in the south) I told my cashier I needed a bag of ice. We continued the conversation throughout the transaction. "What size of bag, large or small?" "Going on a picnic?" etc, etc.
So we finished everything, and just as I was turning away, I said "You got my ice rung up, right?" She said "Oh, shoot!" I looked through my purse, to see if I had some change to pay for it, and she refused. "I'll pay for your ice. It was my mistake." So as much as I told her she didn't need to do that. She insisted, and she paid for my bag of ice. Very nice.
Yesterday, as we got the kids settled down for the picnic, we found this covered pavilion that had quite a few empty picnic benches. After we sat down, and found people staring, we realized it was a party of some sort, because there was a BBQ blazing with tons of hamburgers and hot dogs, as well as a buffet line set up. Before we could get out our lunch from the ice chest, a lady came over and told us that they had expected 200 people for this CDC lunch thing, and only about 30 people were there, so they had all this extra food. "Save your lunch for another day and PLEASE eat our food!" So we did. It was very good, and they even had hard scooped ice cream for dessert.
So there are some very nice people in this world. I am inspired to do my part to join them.
Oh, and NO DICE on the computer. The hard drive is completley dead and we are having a memorial service later today, to remember all the good pictures, recipes, and music that died a tragic death as well. It will be very touching. There might be some tears shed. But such is the life of an ancient hard drive. Goodbye sweet hard drive. You and your files will be greatly missed.
