    A serendipitous (is that a word?) good thing today: I was out for a drive, and stopped in a shady spot on a sidestreet to make a phone call. Then an old neighbour from my childhood wandered by. He used to own the neighbourhood "corner store", and seeing him triggered memories of penny candies (yes you could buy a candy for a penny back in the dark ages lol) He was just out for a walk. We chatted, he pointed out his wife on the deck of a nearby house, then he and his walking stick went on their way. When I drove away past their house we all waved. Made my day

      That sounds like a very nice encounter. I remember buying candies for a penny and chocolate bars for a dime.

        Today I went for a very comfortable cool early morning walk with my dog Bella. I only had to bring one bottle of water to boot!

          That sounds really enjoyable AJ. I went for a walk today also, but by myself, and there was such a chilly wind I had to wear a scarf and windbreaker. I did enjoy it though!

            We just got back from a week camping. The weather was spotty but we were able to have a fire 6 nights out of 7, plus we got in plenty of walks. Take Care, paul m

              I'm curious Paul, how do you get off the ground in the AM, I just can't do it anymore? All kidding aside, I'm glad it was enjoyable.

                Hello AJ. I can't get off an air mattress either anymore. We have a really small travel trailer that we use. It''s not very big but it does keep us off of the ground and on a mattress. Take Care. paul m.

                  Well there's a good option.

                    A good thing today, and for several days, has been a run of good sleeps. Always helps.

                    Paul, I'm glad to hear you got to go camping. I'm a bit envious! Being out in nature for a few days and going for walks sounds so good. Camping can be a lot of trouble to do, but worth it.

                      I've determined that being of help to someone is good for my mood. Yesterday I got to feel like I made a difference to my recently widowed sister-in-law. I phoned her and we had a really good chat, not only about my brother but other things too. She also made a difference to me by saying she finds me relaxing to talk to. I think it was a win-win.

                        Sure sounds like it Uni. Good chats are important to have once in awhile. They keep us 'connected'.

                          The latest good thing is that I had two phone calls yesterday with friends I haven't talked to for a little while. I thoroughly enjoyed them.

                            One good thing is a beautiful summer day, in spite of a 3C start at 6AM.

                              One good thing was we camped for 5 days near our sons and got to see our grandkids (3) a lot and they loved the campfire and roasting marshmallow. Take Care. paul m
