Here it is a true story... 

« on: January 08, 2008, 06:36:13 AM »

There was a song I heard some years ago called " Two glasses of buttermilk."  Based on a real happening... There was a poem also written about it...  

BTW: One of my favorite poems, I learned  in High School; was "The Charge of the Light Brigade!" by Alfred Lord Tennyson, Poet Lorriet of England...  It also is based on a true happening... 

 You may be able to find it on line, to get the whole story, but here is what I can remember...

It happened this way;  Down South,  one hot summer day back fifty  or so years ago...  Some where out in the country side,  a car come down the lone dry dusty road,  it stopped in front of the only farm house for miles...  Then the car stopped in the front yard;  a man got out and ask the folks rocking out on the front porch;  if they could spare anything cool to drink? 

The Lady of the house said, " Sure enough;  Come up on the porch and sit a spell."  " But all I have is some fresh, cool buttermilk, you are sure, welcome to some..."   The man sat and drank two glasses of buttermilk, then thanked the lady and went on his way...

Many years passed and not a thought about that simple jester of refreshment ever crossed the  woman's mind...  Yet some time later the woman became gravely ill and was sent to a hospital in the near by city;  for an emergency operation, for which she had no money to pay...

The lady completed a successful recover and was being released to return home; then received the bill of the operation...  There written across the statement was the words:

" Paid in Full - w. Two Glasses of Buttermilk "

So the story goes, folks you see that your simple jester of kindness and help may well pay great rewards beyond anything you may ever expect!!   Does it not pay to be a good host and offer all whom, you come in contact with;  the best hospitality?? 

 I believe it was answered with two glasses of buttermilk...  It is not the object;  rather it is the action or the thought!!

"Remember kindness and help will pay more dividends than any other action in life..."                   a True-ism Jan. 2008         

Try it you may be pleasantly surprised, dear friend!!
