HappyUP!!! Day 1752

HappyUP!!! - birdies
Why it happened - shots and putts
Why it makes me happy - birdies always perk things up....the one on 6 did today. I started off with a one way ticket on the bogey train through the first 5 holes. A par would be nice....but that birdie was a lot of help. The putt for birdie on 15 was INSANE....but it's not the first time that has happened there.

HappyUP!!! - chutt on 18
Why it makes me happy - I needed it
Why it makes me happy - tough little downhill touch shot from just off the green. To break my match even, I HAD to make it.....highly unlikely.....or was it? I hit got a quarter of the way there and I said, "this one has a chance." The ball rolled out, took a curl to the right, hung over the lip of the hole, and then it..........................stopped right there! Back in "paper football days," they would rule that as a touchdown. In golf, it's just tough beans! It was fun to hit the shot though.

HappyUP!!! - winner winner chicken dinner

Why it makes me happy - I haven't had this combination for dinner in a long time.....and.....yeah .......absolutely delicious....lucky to have had it prepared for me

HappyUP!!! Day 1751

HappyUP!!! - fall
Why it happened - it's a season
Why it makes me happy - today was the first day that I saw massive falling leaves. Falling leaves have attracted the philosophers, musicians, and poets through the ages. I get it. Beauty.....yet Winter, the season of toughness, waits on the doorstep. Fall has a gentleness that bridges the sunshine of Summer and the brutalness of winter.

------c' can you look at that little face and not go, "HappyUP!!!"

HappyUP!!! - wiper blades
Why it happened - Winter is coming
Why it makes me happy - I go into Kragen and ask the guy for the right replacement blades. He asks me the usual make and model question. Then, he says, "do you want me to put them on?" Now, I am QUITE capable of putting on wiper blades....but I don't do it everyday. It took him all of 2 minutes....TOPS. I would not have beat that. AWESOME customer service!!!
