    Tell Me One Good Thing

    I'm feeling some very grumpy vibes on the board today, so can you tell me one good thing that happened to you this week? I want to hear some good news!

    My 24 y/o daughter called me 4 or 5 times already this week and said I love you at the end of each call. Good enough for me.

    Got to spend a little time watching my 2 and 4 year old nephews tonight. Pumped them full of sugar and caffeine, the sent them home with their parents that were 1 1/2 hours later than they said they would be.

    Also got to spend time with my 28 year old nephew doing woodworking this week too.

    Beat the depression yesterday.. The sun was out for awhile. Reply bad most of today.. Maybe better tomorrow..

    My son called me on my birthday--- had a really long talk - not like him to talk so long.. Wish that he could tell what is doing for DOD.

    It feels great to sell a pen,
    It feels even greater to give one to a friend!

    Earlier this week it was cool and crisp in the morning, but bright and sunny, and it was a delight to cycle to work in the sunshine.


    ps: Drew, check out the new CX series that Busy Bee is introducing. I'm not sure if they're in the stores yet. I like the looks of their 14" bandsaw (13" resaw, cast iron wheels, but still a compact footprint) and will be checking it out at the CHW show at the end of the month.
