I have not been completely doing my part scratching my fellow’s backs. I recently wrote a blog post on paying it forward and, my overseas Scotsman, author, and blogger friend Seumas Gallacher wrote a post regarding NEARLY the same as mine. “ye pay it BACKWARD… ye pay it NOW… ye pay it FORWARD… and ye still don’t spend any money… Scots LUV this!…” Except, his made me realize…. I promised Mr. Gallacher, (who speaks better Gaelic than I) a few months ago, I would be part of his Blog Scratchers Corner, #TBSU. I also told Mr. Gallacher I wanted to pattern my social media skills and blogging skills after him, follow in his footsteps. Have I done it yet? Sadly, no. At first, when I read his Ebenezer Scrooge post, my red-headed demon self came out and I started doing my fiery tongue talk to anyone in listening distance. Simultaneously, inside of me, I knew he was right! Seumas, you gave me a wake up call! Here’s to you my skirt wearing friend! You are right, and I, Leisa, on this very Sunday am repentant to you. Read this Scotsman’s post fellow writers and, scratch back! I added #TBSU and Blog Scratchers Corner to my Twitter Evolution story and will do so from this day forth on my own blog spot.
Now for Seumas’s words…
ye pay it BACKWARD… ye pay it NOW… ye pay it FORWARD… and ye still don’t spend any money… Scots LUV this!… #TBSU…
… for those of yeez with a touch of the Ebenezer Scrooge about yeez this should make interesting reading… that we Scots are often referred to in the phrase , ‘… his generosity knows bounds…’ …is a mendacious myth propagated no doubt by legions from South Britain… but we DO know a thing or twelve about VALUE… in this current WURLD of disappearing government trillions of whatever currencies, causing untold havoc in the economies of almost every nation on the planet it would be more than a glimpse of sunshine to have a piece of good news… well here it is … how about PAYING for stuff, without actually SPENDING anything?… among the global quill-scrapers family there’s a phrase, ‘paying it forward’… when ye’ve been knocking about for a while on here in the virtual company of kindred scribbling spirits ye soon discover the depth of REAL generosity that pervades the SOSYAL NETWURKIN channels… ‘paying it forward’
