Like ground school, singing and no waiting

- Telling Bill and Anne at church about how complicated my new programmable thermostat is and the paces friend Tim put me through in learning it. Bill (a retired airline pilot) says, "Like two days of ground school?" I guess. :)

- Sitting beside Barbara D* in church and smiling because she sang today and usually never does. Something about the Silent Night choral response inspired her this day.

- Inspired by the childrens' sermon about "Waiting for Christmas," friend Ginny told me after the service that she asked her two-year-old granddaughter Isabella, "Bella, is Christmas coming?" Bella replied, "Uh huh, after lunch."

* I have four Barbaras in my social network, so refer to them at Barb G, Barbara D, Barbara H and Barbara G.

All three of these are equally wonderful.

P.S. The next Good Things post I do, which will actually be my first, you'll be linked up to my amazing, (yet eternally humble,) site. And won't you need a gold plated something-or-other to commemmorate that momentous event!

Well that will be certain be a momentous event!

Yes, I just have to get out and take a couple J-pegs to support my Good Things hypothesis.

And get the presents off to Canada. And... And.. And...
