    Do more "Pay It Forward" in 2017

    It's January 4 and I've already had an opportunity to "pay it forward" to someone that needed a WSM part. I really like the concept of "pay it forward" and I hope you do, too. If it's not too late, I want to encourage you to add, "Do more 'pay it forward'." as a resolution in 2017.

    Best,
    Chris

    She got it right, way back then, didn't she, Chris?
    An idea my mom decided to use and "stick it to us" many years ago...

    And when you WANT to think about it, maybe Love is more POWERFUL than hate.

    We've done that at coffee shops before. Someone ahead had paid an extra sum to pay for the next person's coffee, and it kinda snowballed. We wound up paying for the 10th person behind us' coffee!
    But I try to do that as much as I can. Not just coffee and advice. If I've got something that I know someone needs, and I'm not using said object, or am looking for a reason to upgrade , I've been know to give stuff away to a good or needy home!
    Lagers and pilsners and ales, oh my!

    Totally agree!
    In life that's how I would like to be remembered.

    It can have benefits beyond the feel good feeling too.
    Several years ago Jo and I were taking our son to Six Flags, on the way we stopped at Burger King for lunch.
    We had some extra BK coupons, so I turned to the family in line behind us asking if they would like them.
    They were very thankful, and said they were also heading to Six Flags.
    Before we left the husband came up to me and offered us a Six Flags parking pass, entrance tickets, and even dinner tickets for his company's annual picnic.
    They had an extra set and he was happy to put them to good use.
    Cooking a steak to well done is like killing the bovine twice.
