belt.

Standard

while at the airport waiting for a flight to arrive

 the voice of a cheerful tsa agent came on the intercom:

” attention, attention, all in the terminal!

if you are walking around

with your pants falling down around your knees

come back and see us at the tsa checkpoint,

we have your belt right where you left it!

 i figured this guy

 working a double shift this weekend

 dealing with a lot of unhappy, delayed, and cancelled customers

has a boss who’s putting out fires

or off for the log off the long holiday

 just wants to have fun and make the best of things

bravo.

“my belt holds my pants up, but the belt loops hold my belt up.

i don’t really know what’s happening down there.

who is the real hero?”

happy hour.

Standard

 

friends on november 12th celebrating national happy hour day to the fullest.

why limit happiness to just one hour?

note: happy hour began as an event in the military.

it is believed that the term comes from events organized

by a club called the happy hour social for the United States Navy in 1913.

“fair thoughts and happy hours attend on you.”

-william shakespeare

hope smiles.

Standard

sign of new beginnings

 wonderful surprises ahead

 my ever-struggling orchid

 suddenly burst into bloom

just in time

to welcome in the new year.

high tide.

Standard

after

a lot, a lot, a lot

of rain

the river rose high

up and over

paths washed out

nice to intersect

where the land met the water

with this very happy dad

following his wife and son

in kayaks 

making their way

through what was very recently

a grassy playground

on island park

 paddling through to the river

“ever think you’d find yourself paddling here?”

“no, but i’m so, so happy that i am!”

 

 

“celebrate the success of others. high tide floats all ships.”

-susan elizabeth phillips

happy hour.

Standard

i expect this to be our look on day 3.

we began a virtual family happy hour

on day 1

we all looked pretty good

some having worked online that day

some in self-quarantine

kids and spouses and pets in and out

on day 2

one of us was in a sports bra

one of us was wearing the same shirt from day 1

there was a spill

looking forward to day 3.
