pay it forward

i know what that means
i watched the movie
i am not sure ive ever done it before
well not consciously

several days ago
after we finished our organic garden and nursery tour
it was near lunch time
so hb and i were tired hungry and thirsty
so we left the greatest organic nursery ever
the natural gardener
drove over to the jack allen restaurant which was nearby
to get rehydrated and fed
to talk about
what i had just showed hb the ut grad student
on our tour

see the blog on our tour and garden work
teaching it forward

now i always jump at the chance to eat at jack allens
since the food is always good

we sat town at a small table
you know those they will have in a row
at restaurants where you are almost sitting right next
to the next table
almost like sitting at a bar

from the conversations that drifted over
from the couples table
they seemed to be co workers on their lunch break
seemed to have similar political beliefs that i did

we said hi
but after a few minutes we really sort of didnt notice them

so hb and i talked for a long time
when i am around these young folks
i usually ask a lot of questions
since i want to know what they are thinking
what their friends think about things
what their plans are
so i can get a feel of who
our countries future is being handed to

i generally like what i am hearing and seeing
from this age group

as we finished
eating our best veggie sandwich ever with sweet potato fires
up walks our waiter
with this fantastic white chocolate pie with the amy ice cream like
we didnt order that sir
he said
that couple that was sitting next to you
ordered it
paid for your lunch

i know what paying it forward really means

now its my turn
