    Motomom 34 gave us a thread in the Inferno for a Daily Rant so I figured we should have a place to put the good things that happen to us on a daily basis.

    Way back, we were developing a product line of Rifle parts and it was costing us an arm and a leg. Finances were stretched to the absolute max to the point that Mike and I went 2 full years without drawing any paychecks. We couldn't even afford to buy paper clips and were scrounging them from home and the floor of our trucks. they were dark days but we didn't give up. What we did do was have a rule that when we arrived in the morning, the first thing we had to relate to one another was good news, the bad news could follow later. Some days good news was hard to find but we were committed to at least one thing, even if it was as simple as we only got one bill in the mail. Through the years, we have continued to start the day with good news and it does help mitigate the difficulties that may follow before the day is over.

    So, in that spirit, lets start the day will good news!

    My good news for Saturday, 06/29/13 - I was able to pull in enough extra bodies to finish the full count Inventory by noon. This is a huge accomplishment. Now I can start the valuation but at least part one is done. I am relieved

    Have a good weekend everyone

    I came to town to see my 1st grandchild born, and was going to stay a week. The gods of good fortune smiled on me....2 house sitting/dog sitting jobs happened...I get to stay a month, get paid....see all my dear friends I made in 20+ years of living here, stay a whole month, AND get paid to do it! I'm grateful to have my little family I have left here...my good friends....and the time to be able to do this. To see the1st month of my granddaughters life..Life is pretty good today. It's the little things that get me through. Thankful RH started this thread too...It's really hard to be anything other than wonderful, when you can find gratitude in every little thing.....

    Awesome thread idea RH! We start every dinner at my house with "One good thing that happened today". I love this stuff!

    I am inside an air conditioned office and not outside melting (at least until the drive home). Ahhhhh.... :)

    Hope the fires are staying away from you, GW. Feel terrible for the families of the firefighters killed...

    As to what I'm thankful for, there's the health of our 'livestock', and that I ate the last 2 pieces of my sourdough this morning, only have to someone trade me a loaf for a dozen eggs this afternoon :)

    I am extremely thankful for certain emergency workers that get little or no pay. These emergency personnel stopped their 4th activities and gave all to help others. So thankful that such people are standing by waiting to help.

    I am thankfull today, that our nighborhood has lost no eyes, toes or fingers from last nights celebration!! Between about 7 families we shot about 600 mortars and a ton of assorted fireworks. We had two mis-fires with one going up 20 feet and igniting, and the other the mortar tube fell over and a ground shot came bouncing across our yard. It looked like someone had yelled grenade... everyone was running. Good times!!!

    My little dog sitting/house sitting venture has me in Florida again, for a month this time....maybe longer. Closer to the people I love, and love me. I get to spend time with my only grandchild, my daughter, and some very important people in my life. Oh yeah, and I won $40 at Bunko last night.... :D
