What Made You Happy today?


Recommended Posts

Opened the mailbox yesterday to see a bill from Direct TV.....after I cut the cord in December.  Opened up the envelope..total amount due...$0.00!!  I read so many horror stories about people cancelling cable only to receive bills months afterwards and it taking even longer to get their accounts cleared.  SOOO HAPPY not to have to deal with the cable company ever again!

I'm happy because I've made someone else happy, a couple of weeks ago I had to change my car, I'd had it for almost nine years, it was four years old when I bought it.  120,000 miles on the clock, more things wrong with it than were worth spending the money to put right.    So I traded it in for a newer car at my local motor trader, same place I bought the old car. As I didn't expect to get much for the old car I told Bill the garage owner whatever he gets for the car to donate the money to a charity of his choice. He was astounded/gobsmacked, he said in thirty+ years as a car dealer nobody has made such a gesture. I just got off the phone with him, he called me to tell me the sale made £300 which is going to a local charity. I was prepared to give the car away, happy to get rid of it, I well had my money's worth out of it. Word is around at what I did with a little luck I may have started  a new trend, can't get over that I've done a first, I would have only blown the money on dust gathering records anyway.

You're a good man JTM, and good for you. It's people like you who make this world a little better.

Got all this free firewood yesterday. The wife and son helped me load the truck. That was very nice of them. :)

Very nice redrum, are you going to age it? Looks nice and fresh.

It still has to dry some. It'll be for next winter. Also have 5 more trees coming. 3 maple, a big fir and a big spruce.

Sounds fantastic. Still too cold for the Weber up here man. However, no shortage of herb and wine. ;)

You don't say? Weather not to your liking B?

It wasn't - but it snowed in Sheffield for about 40 minutes this afternoon! I wouldn't go so far as to say it made me happy, but...slightly less worse?

WOO HOO...stimulus check arrived and since it is Spring break next week at the University, our President decided to give faculty and staff a "mental health" break - so we get next Thursday and Friday off!!  Four day weekend!

We are meeting with our eldest Son and his Girlfriend, seeing our ten month old Grand Daughter who we haven't seen since Xmas. Outdoors for a meal at a local pub, not ideal really. I'd rather they came to our house or we to theirs, f'ckin' "Covid" rules. We are missing some golden times in our little Alba's life.
