Okay, everybody! Β Let’s count to 3!

How shall we celebrate these good times?





When will the good comments start? 1… 2… 3. Let’s look below and see!

  7. Good times are all around us, and it’s great to know your good times are now near the water.

  8. the good times are here…you know how it goes- these are the good old days…..

  9. I just read this to my other half, and said let’s count to three, and I did, and announced the good times have started. Yay! πŸΎπŸŽ†πŸŽ‰πŸ‘

  10. The good times always start when you let them, Ann. And I say: Wooooo-hooooooo.

  11. For me they begin with not teying to define a “good time”. I feel any moment has the potential to be the best one. It seems much easier to define the good times when looking back iver our shoulder…😊

  12. Love the versions of Good Times you share(d) my fav… Sam Cooke! πŸ™‚

  13. love it. you have just spread the good times to me. Good times can be contagious.

  14. Counting my blessings … the good times are here!!

  15. Wonderful.

  16. Shoot, I missed keeping track of when my good times started…..I had a great time this weekend. πŸ™‚

  17. Everything you listed IS true, but only as stepping stones. We have to make a good time out of every step we take. Not always easy — but always important.

  18. That is a great fortune cookie to receive!

  20. Kool & the Gang brought back memories — i saw them perform ‘Celebrate’ in concert back in the day! Still love that song… just need to groove creaking joints to the beat! I thinks there’s something to be said for making our times, good. Thanks for your reminder today to be about it!! CELEBRATE! Life is a gift (even with creaking knees!) grace, peace & hope — Virginia πŸ™‚

    • Hi Virginia! I’m sorry it took me 1… 2… 3… years to get back to you! Thank you, many times, for this comment.
