Day 1541: Good to know

“Good to know” is a phrase I  say a lot.

It’s one of those phrases that’s good to know, because you can say it in response to almost anything anybody says to you.

My son’s friend Cameron, who is good to know (here, here, and here), uses a different all-purpose response: “That’s fair.”

My friend Lawry, who is also good to know (here, here, and here), has used this good-to-know phrase in conversations: “That’s true, but not in the South.” I hope it’s good to know that Lawry, after reading yesterday’s post about our cat peeing in my bag, sent me a different good-to-know phrase via email: “Urine trouble, Oscar.”

It would be good to know if you have any all-purpose conversational responses  you think are good to know.

Are any of my photos from yesterday good to know?









I hope it’s good to know that

  • washing my bag totally removed the smell of Oscar’s pee,
  • yesterday was the first day of spring,
  • my manager wears very interesting ties, and
  • Michael made skate with roasted red pepper sauce for dinner last night.

Michael, who does all the cooking and all the laundry around here, is definitely good to know.

It’s good to know there’s a song by Francesca Battistelli that’s “Good to Know.”

It’s good to know all the people who helped me create today’s post and — of course! — YOU.

  1. It’s great to know you, Ann.

  2. … and now, my day can begin. Good to know you, too, Ann.

  3. Sometimes it’s better NOT to know. Ha! But not in this case. It’s good to know YOU and your world.

  4. I’ve always believed that everything that can be known is good to know because you never know what you might need to know. And that seems to be true everywhere, even in the South.

  5. Its good to know you too Ann! Keep sharing the knowing … and questioning it too 💛

  6. It’s good to know that even when I miss a handful of your posts Ann, that you are still here and I can always come back. ❤

  7. Good to know Michael is around.

  8. I use good to know as well. Also, okedoke, and occasionally That sound? That was my last nerve being plucked…

  9. It is good to know you, it is good to visit you, just so you know

  10. I really love “Everything will be okay in the end. If it’s not okay, it’s not the end!” That’s a wonderful quote. I say “Alrighty then” a lot. I don’t think I ever saw the movie “Ace Ventura Pet Detective,” but somehow that silly phrase got stuck in my head. LOL!

  11. ‘I hear you’ comes to mind. But it’s loaded because it carries the weight of ‘but I don’t agree’. The French ‘d’accord’ (‘I understand’) suits me better.

  12. It’s always good to know.

  13. In the hood it’s “true dat” .

  14. It’s good to know that Oscar is not in too much trouble!
