Five Friday Happy Bringers — 10/17/14

IMU1

Okay, I know I haven’t done the Happy Bringers the past couple of Fridays.  Sorry!  I’ve been traveling up a storm, first to New Orleans and then to Atlanta.

Here’s a Bunch of Stuff I’m Happy as a Lark About Lately:

1.  Laughing and saying, “Seriously?!” every now and then.

(If you decide to get them for me for Christmas, I want the sky blue.  Thank you.)

2.  Carving Jack O’Laterns with grandchildren.  (Part of my job description.)  First with Daniel and Gabriel.

4.  Doors that won’t open.  [We (okay, I) don’t need to go through every door.]

  1. Neal, I love following all of your goings-on, especially your travels! Thank you for sharing all of the great photos from New Orleans and hope you have a great weekend too. I’m headed to my 20th high school class reunion! ~Jamie

    • And I love your always-encouraging comments. We HAVE to get together soon. Have your people call my people asap. And I want to know about your class reunion! But it couldn’t be your 20th. That would mean you graduated when you were three.

    Neal, we enjoyed seeing your grandchildren pics, and some of your travel shots made us laugh.
