Good Moments From The Past Week

In an attempt to better my disposition, I think I am going to start a new weekly posting some good things that have happened in my life over the past week. Who knows, if I do it reliably, my disposition may become cheerful although that may take years.

So here goes, some good things that brought me at least a small measure of happiness during the last week were:

Attending a good friend's retirement party.

Getting my new Rock island Arms 1911 A1 Standard FS pistol from Armscor in exchange for the one I sent in for warranty repair.

Discovering that everything seems to be working okay on said pistol.

Going to the local county PD to have new pistol added to my license and the old one taken off and having it completed in about 10 minutes or less  (yes the concept sucks but the timing was excellent as was the courteous service I received from the officer at the desk).

Finding out from my son that he got his Concealed Handgun Carry License from Arkansas this past week and that he is now carrying.

My wife also passing the news on to me about the son's carry license.

Actually having my wife start a conversation with me at dinner last night.

Dinner last night of corned beef, cabbage, boiled potatoes, Irish soda bread all followed by a midnight snack of a corned beef sandwich! I(f that ain't happiness - what is???)

Finding several open purple blooms on a lily plant, at the side of my house, that has not bloomed in about 3 years. Also finding a stalk of closed ones yet to open (better check them today).

Seeing my grandson take many steps (not his first ones but just that he is increasing the number he can make before falling on his doopah) and realizing he is having a ball while doing it.

Seeing the joy in my daughter's eyes as she watches her rug rat having fun.

That is all for now, if I keep this going someone might mistakenly think I am a nice guy.

All the best,
Glenn B
