Extra! Extra! Read All About It!

Just decided that after my last serious, rather sad post that I needed to give some happy news events happening in the world right now. I hope they bring a smile to your face and that you will, in turn, think about some happy news in your own life. Feel free to let me know if you are celebrating something good in your life right now.
Headline news, reason NUMBER ONE is that I got a wonderful email today from a dear young woman telling me of her recent engagement. She knows who she is...but I won't be a "spoiler" by saying her name as well as her new
fiance's name. However, I will tell you that the arranged marriage between
this woman and my son is now defunct.
Coming in at NUMBER TWO is the birth of Teddy. He's the newborn baby of our new neighbors and weighed in at a whopping 9 lbs. 14 oz.! Mother and baby are doing very well!
This may seem kind of silly, but I bought a really cool cowboy hat today at the local thrift shop for less than $20.00 and that is reason to celebrate NUMBER THREE! It's a Resistol brand and the still new tag inside gave the original price at $179.00! Now, if only I can figure out which of my many men to give it to...
NUMBER FOUR: I get to hang our with my great niece Ava and my great nephew Cal tomorrow. Talk about fun!
Finally, good thing NUMBER FIVE: We are going to Hawaii in a few months to belatedly celebrate our 30th anniversary. Flights, hotel and rental car have been booked! Aloha!
