    Re: What simple things make you happy?

    My greatest simple pleasure this past year was to read all the posts: the serious ones and the silly ones. The one that pops into my head the most is the green speedo. I have a vision in my head that doesn't want to leave it. So, thanks for that simple pleasure!

    Well if that's the vision that pops into your head, then you need a good exam.

    Just kidding.

    I echo what Famita said. Sometimes my simple pleasure is just reading all of your posts. This place keeps me sane.
    Well maybe saner than I was???

    I'm going stir crazy today and touching base here grounds me. I just got done watching tv in the unheated room with outside temps below 0 with windchill, so my simple pleasure right this moment is my heating pad.
    Count your blessings!

    So what thread-count is burlap?

    The other day, after a few minutes of idle chit-chat in the grocery check-out line, the person with whom I was chatting complimented me on the way in which I speak

    Newf, I think burlap is about a negative 20 thread count!

    Gut, we have the same cold temps and snow here. Brrrr. Is there anyway that you can buy more cable line and move the TV into a heated room? Or call the cable company and have them move the line?

    My new sheets are on the bed and I will start off the new year in comfort (even though I had to take off the flannel sheets to do so. I love flannel sheets when the temps are so cold.)

    Today, my simple pleasure is knowing that my son and daughter-in-law invited friends in for New Years Eve, and won't be out driving later. It's nice not having to worry about them!

    Newf, I agree, it's a good feeling. I take a lot of pride in my vocabulary, though I think it doesn't always show through here.


    Here's one for me: I've been planning to visit my sister at school this year, to see a basketball game in Cameron Indoor Stadium. Well! I booked my ticket today... $94! I was expecting to pay $200!! I was quite pleased.

    Thankfully they are not! I was raised a UConn fan and I still am. I've actually only been a Duke fan since 2005 when my sister was accepted! My dad has the hardest time rooting for Duke, but I can usually manage...

    Fortunately they're playing Georgetown, which will be a good old nervewracking game, but an easy one to root for.
