REASONS TO BE CHEERFUL, PART III (again) @ 10:05 am

muskrat_john:

OK. There's enough sorrow and horror to last a lifetime these last two weeks.

It's Friday. Let's take a quick break.

Let's resurrect that semi-tradition here at Muskrat Ramblings: REASONS TO BE CHEERFUL, PART III.

The Rules: Name three - and only three - things that make you happy. Ideally, these should be small, easily taken for granted things. But if there's something big you'd like to share, share away!

Here are mine.

REASONS TO BE CHEERFUL, PART III

1) GET FUZZY. This has become my favorite comic strip by far. I mean, seriously, wow. It almost never fails to amuse. And, since its style is so unlike my own, I feel like I'm learning cartooning all over again. (Minor quibble - Satchel gets a bit more annoyed at Bucky these last few months, as if he's "on" to him. Clueless Satchel is far better than Cynical Satchel, in my book. But these last two weeks have been priceeless). So, who knows how I can meet Darby? (Pearls Before Swine is also quite brilliant, IMHO)

2) MY FRENCH PRESS COFFEE POT. I'm sorry. I must mean Freedom Press coffee pot. Anyhoo, I ran out of coffee filters about a month ago, rendering my drip coffee maker tempoarily useless. In desperation, went digging through boxes and drawers for my old French Press coffee pot. The results blew me away. I'd forgotten what a magnificent cup o' Joe (Jaque?) these things make: deep, rich and satisfying beyond words. Especially those times when I can afford Illy coffee. I may have to mortgage the house...

3) MY GROUNDHOG. Well, not "my" groundhog. But along with the wild turkeys, he's been coming by the backyard pretty regularly, feasting on the nuts fallen from the trees. I half expect, Caddyshack style, him to start grooving to "I'm Alright."

Yes, three things indeed that brighten up my days.

Your turn.

And what the hell. Let's pass this on. Let's Meme this puppy!

I tag ALL OF YOU!
