Day 2149: Understanding how good people think

Yesterday, I saw this on a magazine cover:


I don’t know about you, but I’m good and tired of trying to understand how bad people think.  How about understanding how good people think?

My good friend and good person Jeanette thinks this way: She wanted to celebrate — with other good people — turning 55 in November (even though her birthday is in April).  Other good people thought that was a great idea.  Here are some photos from that good celebration, yesterday:




Good people like Jeanette think of dressing their good dog in a Princess outfit and calling it a “pink wave.”


Good people like Jeanette think a black unicorn would be wonderful and good people like our good friend Carol  create one, just for Jeanette.


Good people like our good friend Janet like to pose like this and good people like me post this photo with this caption: “You can pick your friends and you can pick your nose, but you can’t pick your friend’s nose.”

Also, I think I there’s some good Vitamin K stuck in my teeth there.

Here’s Jack Johnson with “Good People.”

My good and understanding readers, please show how you think in a comment below.

Now it’s time for understanding  how grateful people think about people who help them create blog posts and also — of course! — about YOU:

  1. i love how jeanette thinks! and as for how bad people think, don’t need my brain filled/emptied with that. i often think they don’t really think.

  2. Good people think happy and pawsitive! And good people are mewtiful and they surround themselves with other good people. I love the photos of that good celebration. ♡♡(*´∀`*)人(*´∀`*)♡♡

  3. I think your good friend Jeanette had a great time for her good occasion with fantastic people, Ann!

  4. I love the way you think Ann ❤️♥️

  5. I too love the way you think and all the goodness you create in the world!

  6. Good, happy, photos

  7. That cakes looks yummy! Jeanette sounds like my kind of person, celebrating her April birthday in November, bit like us celebrating Christmas in July and calling it Julymas. I think I’ll be doing that next year too!
    Happy birthday! Great happy photos to make you smile on an overcast, windy and cold day. Just warms your heart

  8. All of us who strive to be better people should focus on how good people think. After all, what better way to be better than by following a positive example? And Jeanette is an extremely positive example–happy birthday to her, whenever she chooses to celebrate it, and to her black unicorn. The world needs more of those.

  9. Hilarious. I’m thinking good and hard about what to write. But all I can come up with is Fun! I would like a piece of cake and to commune with the unicorn. Cheers!

  10. I can barely form a thought let alone think about how other people think, that said th is was a pretty damn good post

  11. Time with people we love and the people who love the people we love —
    The story socks were so wonderful – and sharing stories in celebration of our beloved – laughing and eating –
    A yes! Celebration of goodness, for sure – so glad to have been there with you and J and all who came for the party! Xoxo
