What made me happy today

Hi all


In another community I'm a member of, we have a thread where everybody just says what's made them happy this day. Thought it would be nice for here too! πŸ˜€

And we're not restricted to posting only once!





To start: I was woken up by my cat purring in my ear. The sun is out, and I had a lovely walk to work in beautiful Bath from where I parked.
I'm also happy today because my dad is feeling loads better after coming out of hospital. Tonight I'm seeing friends for tea and food.

Over to you πŸ‘

Hi @Strutt G
Do you curate your fav YouTube tracks anywhere, like a playlist?
If so, it would be great if you could share it 😁


Ah thanks Marc, I would need to run you through the history...its an inexhaustible amount of tunes covering eras and makes my head hurt thinking about it. A little story, back in the day I walked into this basement shop in Kings Road 1975 aged 17 and spoke to the Don, thats Don Lets in the photo, re BBC Radio6. He recommended the Mr Magic album by Grover Washington, number 1 in the in blues and soul mag funk jazz charts. He said to me where did you get those shoes from, I said Blackmans off Bricklane. I went back there the following week and as per the picture, he'd purchased the remaining few bits of stock selling them at Β£12 when they cost Β£2.
Winkle pickers with printed leather snake skin made by Regency Shoes bond street - Retro stuff.
Just to add all the gear we was wearing was never sold in the high street shops and when the high street caught up, years.. later, it was not originals and that included combat - it was a very innovative and a magical time, finding clothes, getting things made up turning up at the record shops for the latest imports.

If your watching Don - I forgive you.

Just been watching a programme on Britains Housing Scandal and this dude who manages a project for getting people off the street by living in insulated converted containers for a year and placed together forming a community.
The projects objectives includes getting residents back to work otherwise they regard this as a failure.

Just found this on you tube:

A weasel walks into a bar. The bartender says β€œWow, I’ve never served a weasel before. What can I get you?”

β€œPop,” goes the weasel.

Sorry @Bev and everyone else...

I just quit my Saturday job at the helium factory.

I won’t be spoken to in that tone.

(That was the last one, I promise)

That sounds like a really good initiative @Strutt G πŸ‘ great idea and putting the containers to good use, too!

Feeling part of a Community can have such positive outcomes 😁
What made me happy today is seeing some friends (of a 'certain age' πŸ˜‚) sharing this photo.

Took me right back to school days.....

I do believe my partner has one of those in the loft, the trouble (hope she's not listening) is can't move in that loft because of hoarding.
She'd say to me: Get Loose!

haha! It took me years to realise why I was always being corrected and told it was an eraser, not a rubber.

We had all our children and grandchildren round this weekend. Mayhem, but great fun. Don't know when we'll get the chance to meet up en-mass again with this Coronavirus knocking around.
