    The title says it all - even on the crappiest day there is usually a little sunshine.

    Here is my list for today:
    • A good friend who is a recovering addict got her first job after choosing sobriety about 8 months ago and entering an intensive treatment program.
    • I found 400 rounds of ammunition I had forgotten about

    What helped to make your day today?

    Congratulations to your friend. I am proud of her because kicking addiction is hard. sincerely hope she succeeds.

    What has made me happy today? It has been a Monday after quite the weekend. The happiest thing that happened today is receiving a note from my friend. I gave her a bouquet of flowers on Friday for her Birthday. Today she sent me a picture of the flowers and told me how much she like the gift. I made my friend happy and that makes me happy.

    I was able to help a woman who works for a friend, here in town. She has a small notebook that began having problems. I was able to install a fresh licensed copy of Windows 10 Pro on it. (I didn't tell her I paid for a license. I didn't want her to feel bad, or obligated to me.) Anyway, I took the computer back to her today. She was as happy as a child on Christmas morning. It makes me feel good, to help others when, and where I can.

    Kenwood Service finally shipped my TS-480SAT back after a Refurbishing.... Only issue is they sent it to my Daughters Place in Austin Tx, instead of Alaska... Oh well it will be there a week from Wed, on the Mail Plane...

    I only work 3 days a week out of the house. ("Lucky" me, it only took 38 years to get here)

    At my work desk, I have a photo of the two youngest of my Grand-daughters. They are playing in a field of Texas Bluebells. That makes me smile every time every time I look at them..

    As far as happy - that, I believe, is a frame of mind.

    My husband got the pastures all bush hogged and the sun just came out after 2 days of rain. I have leftovers in the fridge for supper so no real cooking tonight. Plus I was able to do some sewing today and take a nap. :)

    Treated myself to a Coney Island from Roake's. They have been in business making everything hot dog and hamburger related on McLoughlin Blvd in Gladstone since about 1940. It started out as a trailer on the side of the road that gradually became a building. You can see the back of the original trailer as it curves under the awning. It's changed hands I believe only once in all that time, and the Coney I had tonight is almost exactly the same as the first one I had over 50 years ago. One of the few places I will miss when I evacuate Nutlandia.

    Nothing makes me happy, I just am satisfied with the quality of life. My boots are made from a kangaroo, my hat from a beaver, my holster from a cobra and the grips on my 1911 used to dig walnuts for an elephant. I got gold in my teeth and carbon steel in my pocket, my dog knows when I am coming home without being told. I have a guitar that belonged to Guy Clark and another one that belonged to Garth Brooks, I out-lived Guy and I can play better than Garth. I have a wonderful family and some of the best friends a man can have. I laugh some days and others, not so much but that doesn't take away the satisfaction. Am I happy? Yeah, I suppose so.

    As dark is the absence of light, so then happiness is the absence of sadness. Most folks bumble along day by day with the highs and lows in balance, to say a neutral existance. Be wary of extreme highs, because they WILL be balanced by extreme lows.
