There was this peasant farmer workin' his lords land~
One day this lord's son fell into a bog,screamin' for help,surely about ta die~
Only ta be rescued by the peasant farmer's son~
The lord was over come with such joy, he offered great wealth as a reward, Only to be declined by his peasant farmer~
The answer he gave his lord was just that his son only did what was needed done,just the right thing ta do~
A few years later, the lord returned, but this time with an offer not ta be refused~
Both sons were now of age ta attend University
(college here) And he wanted ta send both the sons there at his expense,The farmer gladly accepted this kind offer~
Both those sons excelled and were good friends,But grew apart as time went on~
Well the peasant studied medicine and was quite the genius it seems,He discovered penicillin!~
But fate once again intervened~
the very first patient that was saved by his discovery, was his lords very son~ Twice now it~
But the story doen't end with that fateful twist~
The lords son went on ta greatness himself~
By the good deed of a seemingly peasant all those years ago, and that charitable act of repayment gave this world TWO GREAT MEN~
Now that's definately payin' it forward~

But here's the thing, is this fact or just a fantasy I want you ya let me know~
what do ya think Real or just a fable?
and You friends of mine in England what's the truth ta this? Is there any truth to it?
But I leave it up ta ya ta decide~
~Either way it is a greart story of payin' it forward~

It's s lovely story to think that there is still some good in this world, but I checked on Snopes and at the risk of being a killjoy, it's not true.

I do believe in fate though, so good stuff happens to good people (or so I keep getting told - I must have been bad in a former life then cause I'm still waitin' !!! )

Hope you get the PC fixed soon - things won't be the same !

Fact or fiction? It's nice to believe that it's true, but then again, it really doesn't matter. It's a meaningful lesson for all of us.
