Beautiful crisp fall day.
But even better was that I was trying to get a cab to get to the library before it closed so I could return all my late books and dvds before my fines got out of hand. A Mercedes pulled over and some lovely person asked if I was going a certain way - which I was. I told her where I was going which was her direction but certainly almost a mile past her destination and she was happy to take me.
Turns out after we were driving and started talking I realized we had met before in her local shop but neither of us knew that when she made her generous offer. What a lovely thing to do. I guess I didn't look like a serial killer. Bless her heart.

I was riding my bike around town and happened to glance over at two men who are neighbors talking over the hedge separating their properties. One of the men had his son, who is about 3 or 4, out with him who wanted to get his attention while he spoke with his neighbor. Impatient, the kid finally started pounding with both fists on his father's ass but daddy ignored him completely and kept up his conversation--finally he put his hand over his ass to shield it from further spanking from his son. His son then began to try and swing on his father's hand. It was very funny so I guess seeing something funny can make you happy.

I've been feeding a stray for a couple of years & sometimes she lets me pick her up & hold her for a few minutes after I put her dish down. It does seem to happen more often when the weather's cold, so I guess it's the warmth that motivates her to accept being held.

It can definitely be therapeutic to think of at least five things that make you happy any time you feel depressed (which for me is often.) I find it helpful to first identify at least five things that are making me feel depressed that day, then follow it up with the five or more that make me happy. Here's my happy list for today:
*Inventing a delicious, hot cheese and meat melty sandwich to use up my leftovers.
*Enjoying listening to the heavy rains (Vancouver,BC) while being cozy indoors.
*Realizing the goals I have achieved in the last two months to validate that yes, I'm actually getting somewhere.
*Deciding to buy personalized gifts online this year for less stress on me and more thoughtful presents for them.
*Reading this thread.

Also, we have Harper in power who would love to dismantle it if he could, so I'm so happy for the US and Obama being in control.

Took a walk through the woods and down by the seaside. It was the middle of a work day (I work nights) and nobody was around. It was awesome!

I helped a fifth grader with long division. He asked me how old I was. When I said 61 his mouth dropped open, eyes popped. I really laughed.

This is the second day of a (I hope) temp to perm job. My unemployment just ran out and I really need it. The lovely guy with whom I work said that he thought I would get an offer and told me that I was doing very well and learning the ropes very quickly. It was nice to hear that.

I met a very hot, very nice guy who gave me his number. I feel like a nervous teenager.

My driver sideswiped a pesky, unattractive little homeless child who was begging on the side of the road this afternoon.
That'll put some fear of God back in her.

I'm happy I was able to walk with my mother today. She was unusually thrilled by all the yellow leaves that had fallen from the trees onto the path. At first, I thought "what a silly thing to get a thrill from" but after watching the leaves fall, I got it!
After I thought of this, I realized there are a few things I am happy about but I'll just post this one.
Thanks Mom (and Dad)

Today I am happy that I have heating and AC

I'm happy for you, R153 and I do hope the lack of heating and AC was a storm-related issue and not that you're finally not living under a bridge anymore. (^_~)

mM 23 month old hopped off his little train and said "Thanks Thomas (the train)" then "Bye Bye Thomas" and left the room shutting the door. Too cute for words. I also tried to video him singing "Happy Birthday" but when i took out the camera, and like, lip synced to him so he would sing, he just lip-synced the words like I did, and laughed at me. This child is THE BEST 98% of the time.

I read an article about an ad executive who, after he was diagnosed with terminal cancer, suddenly realized his career was utterly meaningless and he'd wasted his life. I wasn't happy because of THAT, but I felt reassured that even if my life is meaningless and wasted I did get some fun out of it and lived the way I really wanted to.

My BF and I are renting a beach condo for the winter. We both had the day off today and barely left the property. We took a morning walk on the beach went to Hardees for breakfast, banged, played video games, banged again,napped, made a hamburger helper for dinner, he blew me, watched Walking Dead, now about to cuddle up and go to sleep. A memorable day for me. Love you all

As for me, I had my dog neutered today. When he was under sedation the vet pulled 2 of his baby teeth that hadn't come out yet. He gave them to me in a little baggie - they are SO CUTE.
He also said my dog has a perfect smile - like he's had orthodontia work, his teeth are absolutely perfect. He could be a doggie tooth model he has such a perfect arch and smile.

Finding out that young straight men prefer having a flambouyant gay son over a slutty daughter. The comments are kinda endearing as well. Who knew they love us?

I reconnected with someone I know from ten years ago. We had tea and a really nice time. It's interesting how the familiarity of knowing someone comes back in an instant.
Later, I dropped off some clothes I don't wear at the local thrift shop. While waiting for the shopkeeper I looked at their ceramics for sale. I spotted a brown Heath Ceramics tea cup for $1.99. I am a big fan of their simple designs, and a big tea drinker. I felt like I found a small treasure that was there waiting for me. I know, Mary!

Today wasn't very good for me, but reading this thread reminds me of how relieved I felt when Obama won. I'm going to try to remember not to take that for granted, which will make me happy every day for the next 4 years.

r177, he was sticking his upper body out from behind a shower curtain in the pic. It was one of those frosty shower curtains so you could see the silhouette of his body and ass.

I'd, genuinely, like to give a good cuddly fuck to all the sad sacks on this thread. I like fucking other guys and I like cuddling with them and talking afterward.
