Day 3519: Where every hour is happy hour

Yesterday, as my beloved friend Maria and I spent many happy hours exploring The Joy Store and other happily wonderful parts of Portland, Oregon, I noticed this sign:

Every hour in Portland has been a happy hour for me. I’m also happy about returning back to Boston and to my happy husband, son, and cats today (although I doubt that every hour of my loooooong flight back is going to be happy).

Here and now, I’m happy to spend a happy hour creating today’s blog post and sharing all these images with you.

On International Being You Day, I am so happy to be spending more happy hours with Portland people who are always their wonderful selves.

Here’s what I find on YouTube when I search for “where every hour is happy hour.”

Gratitude makes every hour happy hour, so thanks to all who help me spend happy hours creating this daily blog, including YOU!

Day 3518: You are loved!

I don’t know about you, but sometimes I forget that I am loved, even when I’m around people who love me. So it was nice to see this sticker yesterday when I was on the road in Portland, Oregon:

When you realize you are loved, life seems much more lovely, including all these other images I would love to share with you, here and now.

You are loved, no matter what the Daily Bitch says.

Here’s what I find on YouTube when I search for “you are loved.”

You are loved and I would love to know what you think and feel about today’s post.

Thanks to all who are loved, including YOU!

Day 3310: Funny feelings

I’ve got a funny feeling that my images today are about “funny,” “feelings,” or both.

I’ve got a funny feeling that if you click on that screen shot to get free or discounted pies, it’s not going to work. Here’s the link to do that if you have feelings about pies:

I have a funny feeling that Joan wants to play.

Here’s what I find on YouTube when I search for “funny feelings”:

I have a funny feeling that there will be some funny comments on today’s blog.

One feeling I always have is gratitude, so thanks to all who help me post every day, including YOU.

Day 3108: I love a parade

I love a parade and I loved unexpectedly encountering a July 4th parade when I went out for my morning walk yesterday.

Here’s a parade of photos from that parade:

To avoid a parade of questions about this, “SQU” stands for Squantum.

I was told that after the parade, a prize would be given for the best float. I think it’s a toss-up between “The Pandemic Ends” and “Miracle on Squantum.”

Here’s my video from the parade, which I love:

I hope you love this parade of other images from yesterday.

I can’t get enough parades of gratitude, so thanks to all who parade through this daily blog, including YOU!

Day 1549: If you could be any animal, which would you be?

If I could be any animal besides a human, I’d be a duck, because a duck

Yesterday, after my therapy group, when I was being sociable with the nurses at work, I noticed  they had chosen a different animal for me.

If I could be any animal besides a human or a duck, I’d be a butterfly, because a butterfly

  • is adept in the air,
  • spends a lot of time around flowers,
  • looks great, and
  • changes in very profound ways.

If you could be any animal, would you be any of these?

If you could be any animal interviewing for a job, you might find this useful:

If you could choose any musical number about any animal, which would it be? The animals at YouTube just suggested two  (here and here):

The Lion King medley reminds me that I’ll be singing “The Lion Sleeps Tonight” for groups of animals, very soon.

Thanks to all the animals that helped me create this post and to you — of course! — no matter what animal you’d be.
