a very generous gesture indeed

sometimes people surprise you for the good.  i was browsing my favourtie second hand shop this arvo with the g/kids.  ants asked me to buy him a tripod for the camera.  it was $25 and i thought it too expensive so said no as i'd already spent lots of them today already.  nicely off course.  he went back to browsing, no biggie.  anyhoo, when we got to the counter the lady was acting a little bit strangely. she said i have something to tell you.  i thought wtf?  i didn't know what was going on. then she told me that a customer had overheard the conversation between ants and me and had paid for the tripod.  well, i didn't know what to think.  i was overwhelmed by the generosity of this gesture.  lady behind the counter asked me if i would accept.  i didn't know whether to accept or not.  i mean what's the thing to do here?  i thought under the circumstances it would be best to accept in good grace.  who does stuff like this these days? we hear so much bad stuff these days it does my heart good to know there are still people like this in the world.  she did it to encourage his photography.  wow.  on another note it's been weird weather here today.  we had a storm this arvo.  excellent. it poured with rain and we got drenched.  garden loved it.  ants bought a bird feeder so we filled it with seed and it's all wet in the garden atm.  i hope the birds like it.  :)  we are going on a bug run tomorrow weather permitting.  it should be fun.  mount lofty and back.  a vw convoy.  lol
