Another week has whizzed on by. Monday we drove over to Springfield for some food shopping and to check out the grand opening of Hobby Lobby. OK, I am very aware of how some people feel about Hobby Lobby, so please keep your comments on this matter for another time, thank you. I wanted to see what prices they had in comparison to Michael's and Ben Franklin's. Remember I have to drive 70 miles one way just to get to these places. I have to tell you that I was highly DISAPPOINTED. The prices on the items that I am interested in were sky high from what I can get them at Michael's. We only stayed maybe 15 minutes in the store then drove a few blocks over to Michael's where we got everything we were looking for at considerable lower prices. As I was checking out an older woman was trying to buy two books on coupons. The coupons did not cover books. So she opted to only buy one. In the mean time I was taken to the next register. This put the first cashier's back to me. I tapped her should and asked how much that book is the older woman couldn't buy. She said $7.99. I said I will buy it for her. The older woman was amazed and thanked me over and over again. While my cashier was checking me out she said here I have a %50 off coupon for you. I just looked at her with delight and said, "Thank you, it all works out doesn't it?" I was feeling pretty good all the rest of the way home. Do you have a karmic pay-it-forward story? Let me know in the comments below.

Welcome To My Rain Forest. Acrylic abstract on 12x24" canvas
Just playing around with 14x16" acrylics on canvas. Reminds me of a place I use to live in Idaho.
Honor and integrity in art, in life.
