During the A to Z challenge, (is that a spelling Bee? :) Rebecca Bradley posted a list of five ways to be happy here.
Annalisa Crawford was very sweet to pass it forward last week.
Annalisa, you made me happier than a broke Irishman in a Friday night bar crowd who discovers (at last call) a forgotten $20. (His happiness is tempered as he ponders three things – for he may choose only one.) Another few pints; a taxicab… or a battered sausage, curry chicken pie and a staggeringly long, (but full) walk home.
(I'll wait while the non-Yorkshire readers figure that out :)
Anyhow, here’s how the Happy Meme works:
Offer a shout out to the Happy One who tagged you.
Then, list my five happy ways.
Tag five more.
For *my* five choices, I’m skipping family and Hawaii - I know how blessed I am to have them – and be here.)
However, after a few hours of research and many tears (thanks Annalisa!), here’s five things and a related YouTube clip for each one) that always render me happier than a pig in fresh poop:
- People watching at an airport arrivals lounge.
- Driving across the United States.
On my journeys I:
- Lee Greenwood’s God Bless the USA.
(And to close that circle, here's this :)
However, I do double-dog dare you to watch this six-minute video.
It's not going to harm or hurt you.
I ask only because it's my right.
And, my fellow American citizens, it's your right to do as you wish.
How awesome is that. I love this place :)
God bless the USA.
