    I just got that image in my head and started laughing.

    Believe me, it was every bit as funny as you imagined it to be. That guy was just totally dissed by a flock of geese. Made it clear to me why everyone just waits for them to cross the road. They may be slow, but trying to rush them simply will not work.

    Finishing laundry and having everything ironed that needs it (I never thought I would say such a thing, but indeed, it makes me happy to be done!)

    After an accident in October from which I am now recovered, it makes me happy to be able to do most of the things I could do with ease before I fell down the stairs. The support of my friends on FORT made me happy and able to have some fun while I was healing.

    Reading that Columbia is now up and running again after her long and painful recovery.
    Also, being home and on summer vacation. Sleeping until I wake naturally, napping if I feel like it. Checking things off of my "things to do" list at my own pace without deadlines. Playing with the cats/kitten/dog. Reading. Ahhhhh... life is good.
    Cootie, KatesMom and Columbia, MD like this.
    Count your blessings!

    Thanks, Gut, and thanks to all the support I got here when I was a "mess."

    Coming on FORT and sharing makes me happy.

    Unklescott, you forgot to mention that now that you have gas for these beauties, you can actually go somewhere, too!

    I agree, having a clean car is nice.
