HappyUP!!! Day 4320

WOW!!! - I could go on and on about today. It was another SuperHappyUP!!! Day.  I will keep things in check below!

HappyUP!!! - Katrina and the Waves
Why it happened -Spotify
Why it makes me happy - I started upon doing tasks today. This old silly tune popped just made me start "dancing through my tasks."  Yeah...I know...people use music for motivation. I have done so in the past as well.  I have drifted away in recent times....not a good idea! This was an excellent thing to be reminded of.  Silence is sometimes needed for projects.  It takes a degree of awareness to recognize the appropriate balance for noise versus silence

HappyUP!!! - cash on hand
Why it happened -it is a system
Why it makes me happy -long ago, upon leaving my moneyclip at home, I found the value of keeping a small sum of money in my vehicle for these ...uhhhh.....emergencies.  OK....idiot emergencies! happened today.....drove about 12 minutes to the grocery store...realized what I had forgot.  I amended my shopping list to the essentials that I NEEDED.  I saved myself almost a 1/2 hour of turning around and going back home! (Yeah...I know...."install ApplePay..."...I get it. I don't like it...but I get it.  And....not everywhere takes ApplePay so this is still a good idea).

HappyUP!!! - Shotmaking
Why it happened - work and mental space
Why it makes me happy - hit 13 greens today....including  3 full shots that were basically gimmies. Drove the ball well.  The score? Not important at the moment.  All will come together. I am just overjoyed at how much the difference between a bad shot and a great shot have diminished over the last month and a half.

HappyUP!!! -tournament entry
Why it happened -got the final nudge
Why it makes me happy- lots of reasons NOT to play in this tournament. The Ol Ben Franklin list came out to make the decision to opt out. On paper, things can be pretty simple. However, paper does not convey how much weight some of the options have. In other words, one positive "for" the decision could have as much weight as four of the negative "nays" against the decision.  I was reached out to and got the one that outweighed the others......quality time with a dear friend doing something we both love to do.


-A devious (fun) plan for an upcoming celebration
-The weekend looks awesome!
-US Open Hat arrived
-Wedge to gimme 3...Huge drive to almost the 200 plate on 4....great 6 iron into the wind on 7....studly 4 iron on 8....nice bunker shot to gimmie on 10....6 iron into 11....7 iron into 12 (to a back pin...smoked that dog) iron into wind 13...nice shots on 14...wedges from the trees to the green on 15/16.....DARN NEAR ACE with an 8 iron on 17......smoked 6 iron into the wind on 18
-a monetary victory
-quick stop by from a buddy

Tuesday, May 22, 2018

HappyUP!!! - Day 4319

HappyUP!!! - 6 iron into 18
Why it happened -I'm OK at golf
Why it makes me happy -this baby was just a laser. We were into the wind and my drive wasn't the best so I was back there a bit. This darlin NEVER left the pin and finished 15 feet right behind it. Helped us pick up a bet and minimize losses

HappyUP!!! - Toastmasters
Why it happened -we meet. 
Why it makes me happy -every one of those speeches were solid....and had takeaways for me. It was an awesome display.  Janette came back after an absence and that was FANTASTIC to see her face enter the room

HappyUP!!! - Walmart shirts
Why it happened -I needed golf balls
Why it makes me happy - found a couple of great looking shirts....and nice, modern golf shirt material.  Hey, for $13 a pop, why not give them a shot?!?....I ain't proud

HappyUP!!! - bedtime optimism
Why it happened -been doing a lot of spiritual work
Why it makes me happy- I just can't wait to get up tomorrow to do "stuff"...and it's not the great stuff either.  It will conclude with golf and, after today's round, it will be interesting to see what happens!

HappyUP!!! - ....tidying up linen closet and basement
Why it happened -see the above
Why it makes me happy - these things have been on the list for awhile.  I could make LONG TIME projects out of these. Not today....I was ON IT!!!  While still some work to do downstairs, there was a lot of stuff that got dusted, swept, tossed, reorganized...all AFTER I had done a bunch of other stuff

HappyUP!!! - buried that drainage hose
Why it happened - I said, "what the heck!"
Why it makes me happy- hey, the tools were right there! I had done some trimming which exposed an ugly hose. It was definitely a "when I get around to it" NEVER! Hey, this issue just sprouted up the other day....and now it is BURIED!!!

HappyUP!!! Day 4314

Wow!!!! - it is time to re-create the SUPER HappyUP!!! category for days.

Today was truly bountiful.  Many of my days are. Somewhere along the path of doing this for so many years, I had gotten into a pattern of under reporting on the FANTASTIC days.

HappyUP!!! - Smog Pass
Why it happened - it was the Tacoma
Why it makes me happy - I never take this one for granted.  My other two cars routinely give me a smog pass challenge due to me not driving them much (battery/on board computer issues). Flying colors today...better yet.....I was first one there.  In and out in about 15 minutes tops.  I was able to sit in the waiting room and do some work.  The smog dude was kind of interesting to talk to. A bit of a young idealist/philosopher thinker type.  He was entertaining. I dispensed some wisdom that he was chewing on

HappyUP!!! - birdie on 14
Why it happened - nice wedge/putt
Why it makes me happy -was in a bigger money game today.....that one shot saved/made me about $15.  This is good because I SHOULD have made the birdie putt on 13.

HappyUP!!! -back 9 with Bob and company
Why it happened - our third dropped out
Why it makes me happy -this was old school golf.  All of the junk, carryover skins, no strokes given and for elevated stakes (not that much....but more than the usual game).  It was fun to do.....even though that damn Bob made an eagle, a double sandy, and got both greenies which REALLY messes up a friendly little nine hole game.

HappyUP!!! - Mom E card
Why it happened - reaction
Why it makes me happy- it is always a wonderful thing to get a handwritten thank you note from someone.....and especially this lady. She does the very best ones.  She is fantastic about this.  It is such a lost skill. I'd be INSISTING that any children I had influence over practice this lost art on a regular basis.


Birdie on 14 in the money game
Tom Mc contact     -my blower   -edger  -vacuum -seeing Jan W - TJ Chile Relleno
Mom E card   ordering stuff   - birdie 14 (should have 13)

Why it happened - skillz
Why it makes me happy - hit that exactly how I was supposed to and put it a foot from the hole

HappyUP!!! - a new project
Why it happened - I'm working on change
Why it makes me happy - doing some time analysis. Lots of eye opening things going on there. It also gave me some perspective I didn't have before.

HappyUP!!! - a BIG project completed
Why it happened - Focus
Why it makes me happy- this one has been weighing on me for awhile.  I am overjoyed to get this one off the plate. It was probably made a lot harder than it actually was....yeah...I have that talent! LOL......a lesson was learned that I will refer back to.

Tuesday, May 15, 2018

HappyUP!!! Day 4312

HappyUP!!! - Portia vet visit
Why it happened - I'm a responsible pet owner

Why it happened - nice shot...nice putt
Why it makes me happy - it is so nice to see that ball go into the hole

HappyUP!!! Day 4310

HappyUP!!! - chip in on 6
Why it happened - skills

Why it happened - Mr Stripey
Why it makes me happy - I NAILED this one. It was a beauty....nice and high that was dead at the pin. Came up just 3 feet short right on line of a hole in one...a pure hit just has that something that feels great

HappyUP!!! - BuddyBall
Why it happened -it's how it came up this week
Why it makes me happy - nice to slap it around with this guy as a partner today...only the second time this year.  Did a little "poo poo" on 18...but that just adds to the charm

Why it happened - Sis-in-law is going to be on the road tomorrow

Friday, May 11, 2018

HappyUP!!! Day 4308

HappyUP!!! - Finishing Up
Why it happened - I'm not sure
Why it makes me happy - WINDY day on the links...a bit miserable....but comical at the same time. THE latter is what I focused on. Out of nowhere, with the wind just howling, I piped the most beautiful 4 iron into 17 and capped that with a huge drive and 3 wood on 18. Didn't see either of those coming. Loved it because it led to less shots I had to hit

HappyUP!!! - G-Mac ace
Why it happened - he's good...and lucky
Why it makes me happy - second ace in a year for this "best of dudes" dude. Love this guy and happy for him. It was fabulous to celebrate his great shot but, more importantly, a privilege to be present to his graciousness.
